DUBAI.- Christie’s announced two key appointments to its senior management team in the Middle East: Dr. Ridha Moumni has been promoted to the role of Deputy Chairman, Christie’s Middle East & North Africa, effective immediately, and Meagan Kelly Horsman has been named Managing Director, Christie’s Middle East, joining the company on 23 May 2022.

Anthea Peers, Christie’s new President for Europe, Middle East and Africa, has identified the Middle East market as a strategic priority for the company, and these two important executive announcements underscore Christie’s commitment to deepening its investment in this area.

In his new role as Deputy Chairman, Middle East & North Africa, Ridha Moumni will assume responsibility for business strategy across the region, with a strong focus on the Gulf and North Africa amongst other areas. He will work to expand and enhance Christie’s profile and portfolio of offerings while also promoting the company’s diversified businesses. Ridha was previously Christie’s Senior Client Advisor for the Middle East, joining the company from Harvard University’s Department of Art History, where he was an Aga Khan Fellow.

Meagan Kelly Horsman brings to Christie’s her extensive experience in Collection Management and Development for some of the most important collections in the UAE. Based in the region since 2010, Ms. Kelly Horsman worked previously in the primary art market, starting her career in the art world at Bonham’s. Meagan has also curated numerous exhibitions, delivered short courses relating to the art sector, and created a curated print fair at Al Serkal Avenue.

Anthea Peers, President Christie’s EMEA commented: “Joining Christie’s London 16 years ago, I vividly remember the excitement felt ahead of the first auction we held in Dubai, back in May 2006. This expansion and further successes in the region, as we forged relationships throughout the area, remains pivotal for the business, and the Middle East has always been at the forefront of my mind. It’s therefore an even greater pleasure to announce these new management appointments so early in my new role as President, Christie’s EMEA. There will be further news to come in the weeks and months ahead, underlining the strong investment Christie’s will continue to make in the region going forward.”

Christie’s Dubai office hosts two dedicated specialist departments for watches and Middle Eastern art, as well as a special events team, led by the newly appointed General Manager Itziar Salgado. In addition to its core team of colleagues based in Dubai, Christie’s engages and directs a strong network of consultants throughout the region and receives integral support from senior colleagues across the business, including Dr. Bertold Müller, Managing Director Christie’s EMEA; and a highly skilled team of managers, client advisors, and specialists in Islamic Art, 20th/21st Century Art, Old Masters, and Collections.
