Christie’s veteran and former CEO of the Qatar Museums Authority Edward Dolman has joined Phillips as chairman and CEO. He will share his time between the auction house’s London and New York headquarters, overseeing and developing a major growth strategy for the business, which will include a push abroad as well as the inclusion of new categories.

Dolman’s appointment comes at a crucial time for Phillips, which will inaugurate grand new headquarters at 30 Berkeley Square in London this October.

Dolman spent three years in Qatar between 2011 and 2014, working as director of the office of Her Excellency Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani, Chairperson of the Qatar Museums Authority. He joined QMA after 27 years at Christie’s International plc, where he last served as chairman in charge of global business development.
