SUZY SIKORSKI AND BOB XUE JOIN CHRISTIE’S MIDDLE EAST ART AND WATCH TEAMS
Christie’s Middle East is pleased to announce an expansion to its team of specialists with two new appointments in Dubai. The appointments of Suzy Sikorski and Bob Xue will further strengthen Christie’s position in the region by expanding and developing key relationships with private collectors and buyers from around the region.
Ms. Sikorski joins the art team after having just completed a Fulbright Scholarship in art history in the Arabian Gulf region and will work hand-in-hand with Hala Khayat, Christie’s Senior specialist and head of sale. Suzy will be in charge of coordinating all catalogue note research efforts and will look after the development of the contemporary art section of the auctions.
Mr. Xue joins Christie’s from his previous role with Vacheron Constantin. Under the guidance of Remy Julia, Head of Sale and Senior watch specialist, Bob will continue to develop the watches category, which has become a firmly established and highly sought-after element of the annual sale season at Christie’s Middle East.
“Thanks to a measured expansion strategy, we are delighted to welcome two new appointments to our team in Dubai, building on our deep knowledge of the region and passion for the arts and watches. These two new colleagues will strengthen Christie’s regional support to our clients and collectors, enrich our curating capabilities and further, underline our commitment to the region as well as our long term vision for Christie’s in the Middle East,” commented Michael Jeha, Managing Director Christie’s Middle East.
