artnet has hired Kenneth Schlenker and Astrid de Maismont, two of the three-person team that launched the online art sales company ArtList. The company organized public and private art sales via its website; it had about 9,000 users and sold prints and editions as well as unique works, some of them priced above $50,000.

Schlenker and de Maismont will both join artnet’s staff full-time, with Schlenker coming on as chief marketing officer and de Maismont joining in the auctions department. Maxime Germain (the third person in the ArtList trio) has formed a new business, Stellar Base, that works to help startups to expand.
