The New York Times’s Carol Vogel announces the departure of one Christie’s most visible business getters and the voice of many Asian buyers in the sale room:
Ken Yeh, Christie’s chairman for Asia, is leaving the auction house after 16 years to head up Asian sales for the Acquavella Galleries. “We want to have more of a presence in Asia, and Ken’s the person to help make that happen,” said William Acquavella, whose father founded the gallery in Manhattan in the early 1920s. Mr. Yeh will be a director and will divide his time between New York and Asia.
