Deidrea Miller, Christie's Senior VP and Head of Communications Departs the Auction House

Deidrea Miller, the head of communications and the senior vice president for Christie's Americas has left the auction house after just over two years in the role. She was one of only two Black executives at Christie's, and the only one with a public-facing position.

According to a report by ARTnews, Deidrea Miller's departure from Christie's Americas was confirmed recently when she was referred to as being “formerly of Christie’s Americas” by Axios. As of now, the reasons behind her departure remain undisclosed, as neither Miller nor Christie’s offered a reason for her departure, which was confirmed by a spokesperson for the auction house, who said, "We wish her all the best". 


Miller joined Christie's in October 2021, and oversaw strategic communications for its Americas division, as a member of its executive committee. She helped the auction house achieve unprecedented publicity for its major sales in New York, such as the historic Paul Allen auction and the sale of a 1964 Andy Warhol painting of Marilyn Monroe, which became the most expensive artwork by a 20th-century artist ever auctioned. 


Prior to her time at Christie's, Deidrea Miller held prominent positions in the field of communications such as the director of the PR firm Brunswick Arts, where she worked with institutions like the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark. She also served as deputy communications director to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, where she supervised the arts and entertainment sectors and cultural matters across 24 city agencies.
