Christie’s promotes Triptree to international director

Published:  21 June, 2018

Christie’s has promoted Tim Triptree, previously vice president, senior specialist, head of sales, to the position of international director, specialist in the wine department.

Taking on his new role with immediate effect, Triptree will in his new position lead Christie’s activities across Continental Europe, Asia and the Americas and work closely with the local teams on the overall strategy to further grow and develop the business around Christie’s wine sales.

In addition, Triptree will focus on delivering “exceptional client service” to collectors internationally, drawing on his 13 years of experience across Christie’s sales sites, said the business.

“Tim’s extensive experience and knowledge gained in Europe and Asia will help to align the department to the needs of Christie’s collectors,” said Aline Sylla-Walbaum, international business director, luxury.

Throughout his career at Christie’s, Tim has been involved in several important consignments including the record-breaking sale of a case of Romanée-Conti 1988, which established a new record price at auction when it sold for £264,000 in London in March 2018; the sale of historic vintages from the cellars of Château Pichon Lalande and most recently, the auction “Rarities from the Cellars of Champagne Charles Heidsieck”, which took place in November 2017 in London.

Triptree said: “In my new role I will continue to elevate and promote the dynamic wine market on a global scale as well as develop the talent of a new generation of wine specialists.”
