“We can confirm that Group COO Lisa King has decided to leave Christie's later this month,” said a spokesperson for Christie’s, adding “She has made a truly significant contribution to Christie’s over her 15 years with the Company and we wish her the very best in her future endeavors. We know she will remain a friend to Christie's for many years to come.”

King joined Christie's International in 1996 and was named as its chief operating officer and group managing director in January 2010. The company spoke of her “breadth of management experience, business acumen and strategic awareness” at the time of her promotion. In September 2010 Steven Murphy was appointed Christie's chief executive.
