Ken Yeh Moves to Aquavella

Ken Yeh

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.
