HONG KONG.- Sotheby's announced the appointment of Beibei Fan as Managing Director of China. Based in Beijing, Ms. Fan will be responsible for leading the local team and driving Sotheby's business and presence in China. She will also play a key role in Sotheby's business development strategy, working closely with senior leadership across the Company. Ms. Fan began with Sotheby's earlier this month.

"Beibei joins an outstanding team of seasoned colleagues across Asia and will be instrumental as we continue to build upon our existing presence and activities in China," said Tad Smith, Sotheby's CEO.

Ms. Fan joins Sotheby's from HBO, where she held the position of Executive Vice President for New Business & Managing Director for China. In that role, she oversaw all the business aspects of HBO’s business in China, from revenue generation to production, as well as new business prospects across Asia. Prior to HBO, Beibei held senior positions at Warner Bros. and The Walt Disney Company in China.

Kevin Ching, CEO of Sotheby's Asia, stated, "Beibei has successfully guided multinational companies through growth and expansion in China and brings a detailed understanding of Chinese governmental system and economic environment. Her track record of creating innovative approaches and setting industry standards will be of significant benefit to our focus on growth and opportunities in China." Valentino Carlotti, Sotheby's Global head of Business Development, added, "Beibei is well positioned in the region to help us best serve our existing clients and to reach new audiences throughout China."

Ms. Fan began her career at China Central Television before opening Warner Bros.’ office in Beijing and rising to Director, International TV in Greater China during an eight-year-tenure.

At the Walt Disney Company, Ms. Fan was the Director of Program Distribution for Greater China for two years before returning to Warner Bros. to resume the role of Vice President of International Television for Greater China & Mongolia.

Under the umbrella of Time Warner Inc. (now WarnerMedia), a cross-company role was created for Ms. Fan at both Warner Bros. and HBO, where she took on responsibilities for New Business and later opened HBO’s China office in Beijing. In this role she established a series of groundbreaking partnerships with major Chinese digital business and significantly expanded Time Warner’s footprint in Greater China.

Ms. Fan received her Bachelor of Arts from Communication University of China, a Master of Arts in Electronic Media from Oxford Brookes University, and an EMBA from INSEAD.
