HONG KONG.- Leading global auction house Christie’s announces three new senior appointments including: Lilly Chan, International Business Director of Asian Art, Ci Sun, Regional Business Development Director and Pauline Tien, Business Development Director, Christie’s Fine Art Storage Services (CFASS). As Asia remains a key driver for Christie’s and the global art business, these appointments will build on the company’s established presence in the region, and expand its capabilities in client servicing and business development.

François Curiel, President of Asia, said, “As part of our long-term strategy to continually reinforce our presence in Asia, the appointment of Lilly Chan, Ci Sun and Pauline Tien in their respective positions will strengthen three key areas of our activities: expertise, business development, as well as fine art storage. As professionals in their specific fields, they look forward to bringing their knowledge and experience to our existing teams."
