NEW YORK, NY.- Christie’s announces that Alex Rotter has been appointed Chairman of Post War and Contemporary Art, Christies Americas. Having forged a 16-year long career as a key figure in the contemporary art world, Rotter will have a senior executive role in the Post-War and Contemporary team working on consignments and sales at the highest levels. Rotter is recognized as a leading authority in the contemporary art world with significant international experience of working with collectors, estates and artists. He will take up his appointment in early 2017.

Brett Gorvy, Chairman and International Head of Post-War and Contemporary Art at Christie’s, said: “Alex Rotter will be an outstanding addition to our market-leading team at Christie’s and will bring his considerable experience to the role. We have long admired Alex's art expertise and his innate understanding of both clients’ needs and the art market in which we operate. Alex’s appointment will further strengthen our team and we look forward to having him as a colleague for many successful seasons ahead.”

Alex Rotter said: “The Christie’s Post War and Contemporary Art team is the clear market leader. I have long respected their innovative approach, which has set the art market agenda each season by creating auctions that capture the imagination of the art world. As a company Christie’s not only has an incredible track record of understanding clients’ needs and tastes but also, uniquely, a clear vision of how those tastes are evolving for the future. The Christie’s team is exceptionally talented and I am delighted to be working with them in the near future.”

In his new position Rotter will work closely with Brett Gorvy, Chairman, International Head of Post War and Contemporary Art, and the international Post-War and Contemporary team at Christie’s. From 2008-2016 Rotter was Worldwide Co-Head of Contemporary Art at Sotheby’s (2008-2016), where he spent 16 years of his career. At Sotheby’s he started as a junior member of the department and began a steady ascent to the top of the company. Rotter oversaw the rise in global contemporary sales at Sotheby's and led the launch of S2, the auction house's gallery space and hub for private sales in 2011. Rotter was educated at University of Vienna and grew up in a family of art dealers in Austria.
