Phillips has announced the appointment of Julia Roxana Heinen as a specialist and regional director for Switzerland for twentieth-century and contemporary art. Heinen is currently the senior specialist for postwar and contemporary art at Bonhams in London.
“Switzerland has always been an important market for contemporary art and a home to many serious art collectors,” Cheyenne Westphal, global chairman of Phillips, said. “I am delighted that Julia has joined our team as part of our major global expansion as we work to provide clients throughout Europe the best service across all of the collecting categories in which we specialize. She will partner with Phillips’ senior executives in Europe, Asia, and the United States to further develop our global client relationships, focusing on delivering best-in-class services and engagement opportunities to today’s collectors.”
During her tenure at Bonhams, Heinen worked on auctions in London, New York, and Hong Kong, establishing an international client database for the auction house by focusing primarily on German and Swiss collectors.
