“We are delighted to have Vinci joining us as Head of our 20th Century Chinese Art Department,” said Kevin Ching, chief executive officer of Sotheby’s Asia. “Sotheby’s auction sales in this category have gone from strength to strength in recent years, and Vinci’s appointment will drive even stronger and greater growth in this field.
“With her wealth of experience and expertise, and her extensive global business network, I am confident that Vinci will further consolidate Sotheby’s market leadership in 20th Century Chinese Art.”
