Michael Jeha – New Levant Initiative

Michael Jeha

In the role as Managing Director and Deputy Chairman of Christie’s Middle East, Michael Jeha has been responsible for implementing and executing the firm’s strategic and commercial vision for the region. Since Christie’s first opened an office in Dubai in 2005 and began holding biannual sales the following year, the numbers of Christie’s Middle Eastern clients have increased with the global buying activity of this group now accounting for 8% of company turnover.

Under his management, Dubai has become a regular and important selling center on the international auction calendar with auctions of modern and contemporary Middle Eastern art and watches achieving sales of over $300 million.

In October 2017, Christie’s organized a new marquee event in London, Middle Eastern Art Week, which brought together exhibitions and auctions of Islamic art, as well as for the first time Middle Eastern modern and contemporary art in London.
