Studying the growing digital trend of today, Phillips in association with Bacs & Russo have assigned Arthur Touchot as the new Specialist and Head of Digital Strategy, Watches - effective immediately.
The former Senior European Editor at Hodinkee, is well-known in the vintage watch community. His thorough analysis of the auction market have earned him a place on several expert panels, two of which were hosted by Phillips. Working closely with the department’s Senior Consultants and International Strategy Advisor, Touchot's main focus would include expanding the auction house’s digital presence with strong focus on new markets, digital advertising, and social media.
Aurel Bacs, Senior Consultant, said, “We are delighted to welcome Arthur Touchot to our team, having long admired his outstanding approach to journalism and online community development. Arthur’s professionalism, sterling reputation, scholarship, and integrity are the skills upon which the Phillips Watches Department prides itself and the values for which it stands. We look forward to the expansion of our digital efforts under Arthur’s leadership, developing our ever-growing client base around the world.”
