Adrien Meyer, who joined Christie’s in 2004, has been appointed to the newly created role of chairman of global private sales at the auction house. He will also continue working as co-chairman of Christie’s Impressionist and modern art department, a position he has held since 2017.
As chairman of global private sales, Meyer will seek out new opportunities in the Americas, Europe, and Asia. At Christie’s, he has previously led the European furniture department and served as a specialist and vice president. Recently, he served as co-head of the auction house’s private sales channel.
Guillaume Cerutti, CEO of Christie’s, said in a statement, “While Christie’s private sales have regularly increased since 2017, we wanted to appoint a well-respected and versatile specialist to spearhead our team’s efforts and improve our communication to our clients. Adrien Meyer has all the qualities to reinforce our focus on private sales, and to help Christie’s increase both the volume and contribution of this channel.”
