Online auction house Paddle8 has hired Stefany Morris as head of fine art auctions. Morris will oversee all of Paddle8’s for-profit auctions of modern art, contemporary art, photography, prints, and editions.

Morris was most recently a director at Waterhouse & Dodd’s Upper East Side gallery in New York. Before that, she worked at Christie’s for eight years as a specialist in the auction house’s Impressionist and Modern department and co-head of New York day sales and works on paper sales.

Paddle8’s for-profit sales have grown 140 percent year-on-year, according to a spokesperson, who added that the hire “reinforces Paddle8’s focus on fine art auctions.”
