The Arts Foundation of Cape Cod (AFCC) is welcoming new leadership to its board of directors, having appointed Kathryn Kayajan of Mashpee as its new chair and Lilly Chan of Cotuit as a board member.
Kayajan, who joined the board in May 2018, succeeds Rana Murphy, who has served as chair for the past three years.
Prior to her board appointment, Kayajan served as an AFCC volunteer. Kayajan is the CEO of FERRAN, an American luxury textile, wallpaper and home goods company that she launched in 2000 and which has been featured in Vogue, Country Living and Elle.
Chan, who has maintained a home on Cape Cod with her family the last five years, moved here full-time from Hong Kong last summer.
As an advisor and a consultant, Chan brings more than 25 years of business leadership experience to the Arts Foundation, most recently serving as the managing director of Asia with Phillips Auctioneers in Hong Kong. Prior to Phillips, Chan was the global managing director at Christie’s where she grew its Asian Art business to over $550 million.
She holds a bachelor of science in marketing from Boston College and an MBA from Northwestern University.
