Bonhams has named executive chairman Bruno Vinciguerra as its new CEO, replacing Matthew Girling, the auction house said Monday.

Girling is leaving the company after 23 years. He joined its management team in 1999 and was appointed global CEO in 2015.

While Girling was at the helm, Bonhams successfully extended its international reach, opening a salesroom in Hong Kong in addition to its New York, London and Los Angeles operations. The executive was recognized as one of the world’s top five auctioneers by The Times of London in 2018.

“[Girling] has played a major role in the history of this auction house,” said Vinciguerra “His expertise in jewelry is world-renowned, and he will continue to be held in high esteem by colleagues.”

Vinciguerra will serve as CEO in addition to his current role of executive chairman. No date has been given for Girling’s departure.
