Christie’s announces the appointment of Marc Porter as Chairman, Americas, reporting into Guillaume Cerutti, Chief Executive Officer. He will lead the region’s expanding client and business development activities and serve as a key member of the company’s Executive Management Group which guides the firm’s global strategy together with the board. This role is an expansion of his previous responsibilities at Christie’s and will include a focus on private sales – an area of excellence that Marc championed prior to his departure in December 2015.
“Marc’s appointment as Chairman, Americas complements the changes we made at the board and executive levels late last year and marks a further step in the refinement of our structure as we plan for growth opportunities ahead,” commented Guillaume Cerutti, Chief Executive Officer, Christie’s. “We remain committed to investing in our team and in our client-focused culture at Christie’s and we look forward to welcoming Marc back in this expanded role.”
