NEW YORK, NY.- Phillips announced that Jamie Niven has joined the company as a Senior Advisor to Chief Executive Officer Edward Dolman. He is based in New York.

Mr. Niven spent almost 20 years at Sotheby’s, rising to the position of Chairman of the Americas, which he held from 2006 to 2015. At Sotheby’s, Mr. Niven used his extensive international experience to develop and implement client management and salesforce strategies to expand the company’s global reach. He is currently a member of the Leighton Candler Group at Corcoran and, until recently, served as Chairman of Athena Art Finance, which recently merged with the digital investment platform YieldStreet. Prior to joining Sotheby's, he was Chairman of Global Natural Resources, an oil and gas company based in Houston, and he started his career in the corporate finance division of Lehman Brothers.

Mr. Niven will work closely with Phillips’ global leadership team to develop the companywide top client program. He will strive to increase the overall number of top clients known to and transacting with Phillips and augment long-term business and client development strategies to increase client participation in Phillips’ auctions. He will also work closely with the regional leaders in Business Development and the Directors of Trusts, Estates & Valuations to focus on top client development, winning new business and global strategy.

“Jamie has an unbelievably strong global network of relationships with collectors and institutions that he’s cultivated during his distinguished career in the art and philanthropic worlds,” said Mr. Dolman. “Those relationships, coupled with his knowledge of the art market and insight into global issues, will be a tremendous asset to our team. He will be a great ambassador for Phillips as we continue our global expansion.”

In addition to his professional experience, Mr. Niven has strong ties to the not-for-profit community and is actively involved in numerous philanthropic organizations. He is a trustee of The Museum of Modern Art and is currently Chairman of the Center on Addiction. He serves on the Board of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, as well as on the Board of Bloomberg Philanthropies, and is a former Chairman of The Ralph Lauren Center for Cancer Care and Prevention. He has previously served as a director for The Central Park Conservancy, The Children's Aid Society, The Neil A. McConnell Foundation, AMREF, The Parrish Art Museum and The National Center for Learning Disabilities. A former Sotheby's auctioneer, Mr. Niven has conducted over 600 benefit auctions, helping raise over $600 million for charitable causes.

Mr. Niven added, “In the past few years, it has become apparent that Phillips has tremendous ambitions to make a major impact on the global auction market. Under Ed Dolman’s leadership, the company has made extraordinary progress in building a significant auction house with one of the most experienced and talented teams in the business. I am delighted to re-enter the auction business and help Phillips reach the next level of growth.”
