About the Talent
Our auctioneer, CK Swett began his career at Christie’s in 2006 and over the past thirteen years he has had the opportunity to work with non-profits around the world. Rihanna’s Diamond Ball in New York, Teach for China in Hong Kong, One Drop in London, and Muhammad Ali’s 70th birthday party in Las Vegas, which featured a pair of boxing gloves that sold $1.1 million, are just a few of the events where he has used his talents to make a difference.
When not having fun with bidders and convincing them to raise their paddle one last time, CK is often found golfing, playing chess on his phone, or singing enthusiastically off-key
