Heritage Seeking Top Experts, Opening NY And LA Galleries

While other auction firms have reported shrinking sales and significant lay-offs, Heritage, the world’s third largest auction house, is adding multiple world-class experts to its current staff in over 25 different categories. These experts will, in some cases, head new departments and in others will enhance existing department expertise. We have positions open at our headquarters in Dallas as well as at our new state-of-the-art galleries in prime locations in both Midtown Manhattan and Beverly Hills, scheduled to open in late 2009, or in early 2010.

We believe Heritage’s business model of transparency and respect for our bidders’ time is the wave of the future, as clients are discovering us in record numbers (read our Mission and Values statement here). In fact, we recently enjoyed our most profitable quarter ever (Jan-Mar 2009), as well as the best April in our 33-year history as an auction house. Our 2009 sales volume will likely match or exceed our record 2008 numbers even as the other major auction houses report 60% sales decreases.

Heritage is now ready to hire the world’s best experts to support existing departments and launch new ones, especially in the following categories, though we will consider many other areas as well, including sub-categories:

* American Art
* ncient Coinage
* Antiquities
* Asian Art
* Books, Maps, and Prints
* Decorative Arts
* European Art
* Jewelry and Timepieces
* Latin American Art
* Modern and Contemporary Art
* Photography
* Vintage Automobiles
* Wine

These are top, high profile positions; we are seeking ambitious candidates who will bring their excellent reputation, business ethics, strong work ethic, organizational skills, and knowledge to represent Heritage in the best light. Preferred candidates will have more than 5 years in a major auction house environment, or experience as a commercial dealer (a combination of both would be ideal). Writing and public speaking talents and skills are a plus. Job duties will include obtaining consignments; supervising the vetting of condition; authentication of properties consigned; reviewing inquiries; proofing of cataloging, essays, and advertising copy; marketing specific objects to important clients, and supervising two or more auctions per year with full bottom-line responsibility in the case of department heads.

If you are interested and feel you have the qualifications we seek, please email your resume and salary history to Experts@HA.com.
Please note: If you know other people who meet the qualifications described above, we would be grateful if you would forward this email to them.

Thanks you,
