NEW YORK, NY.- Christies
announces the appointment of Jennifer Zatorski as President, Christies North and South America. A 25-year veteran of the company, Ms. Zatorski will transition from her current role as President of Christies Art Departments to a broader leadership role overseeing Christies operations throughout the Americas. She will work in close collaboration with Marc Porter, Chairman, Americas.
I am delighted to appoint Jen as President, Christies North and South America. A consummate professional, her wisdom and insight is sought after and valued by colleagues across the company. The depth and breadth of her experience coupled with her unwavering commitment to continued innovation and diversification of our business, makes her uniquely well-positioned to lead our operations for this important region, commented Guillaume Cerutti, Chief Executive Officer.
Her appointment follows the decision taken earlier this year by Brook Hazelton to leave Christies this summer, following the U.S. regions flagship spring auction series. It has been a great pleasure working with Brook and I appreciate his dedication to Christies and his many contributions to our business over the last several years, continued Mr. Cerutti. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
Ms. Zatorski has built her career at Christies in the U.S. over the last 25 years. During that time, she has held senior leadership roles in Finance, Business Management, and the Commercial Office. Most recently, she was President, Specialist Art Departments, overseeing the global expansion of collecting categories across the companys auction, private sales and e-commerce channels.
It is an honor to take on this new role and to build on our successes in the Americas where our priority is serving our clients in the most creative and comprehensive way, commented Ms. Zatorski. Over my career, I have had the privilege of working with every specialist department and every part of the business. Working together with Marc Porter, my mission is to ensure that Christies in the Americas remains a superb place to work, to visit, and to connect with great art and objects.
