NEW YORK, NY.- Bonhams has appointed Lilly Chan as Managing Director, Bonhams US. Lilly will work closely with Leslie Wright, Chairman of Bonhams North America, to build on the company’s recent expansion.

Based in New York, Lilly joins Bonhams with decades of experience leading business, marketing and operations through transformational growth in the worlds of luxury, financial services, retail markets and auction houses. As Global Managing Director for the worldwide Asian Art department at Christie’s in Hong Kong, she led the team through a strategic and organisational transformation, achieving record profits over a six-year period. As the Managing Director of Asia for Phillips auction house, also in Hong Kong, she built a regional team, expanded into new markets and opened three new offices within 18 months. Latterly, Lilly has been acting as a business consultant and advisor to start ups and entrepreneurs.

Lilly Chan said: “I am delighted to be joining Bonhams at this exciting time. With its expanding sales calendar, its growing network of offices, and, in particular, the recent acquisition of Skinner, the leading auction house in New England, Bonhams is demonstrating a level of ambition I very much relate to. I am looking forward to playing my part in the ongoing Bonhams journey.”

Leslie Wright, Bonhams Chairman for North America, commented: “This is a landmark appointment for Bonhams US. I am thrilled Lilly will join me in spearheading our ever-expanding operation in North America and look forward to working with her as we take Bonhams to new heights.”

Bruno Vinciguerra, Bonhams Global CEO, said: “Lilly is the ideal candidate to take on the pivotal role of Managing Director, US. The breadth of her experience, her proven business acumen and organisational and transformational skills have all been deployed at the highest level, and I know she will build upon Bonhams’ recent success.”
