Dolman was named Christie’s chairman in 2010 after a decade as CEO. At the time, Christie’s named a new CEO, Steven Murphy. Dolman rose through company ranks, after starting at the London-based auction house in the European furniture department.

Christie’s is a privately held company owned by French magnate Francois Pinault.
