Sotheby's has appointed MasterCard's top global marketer Alfredo Gangotena to the position of chief marketing officer .

Gangotena will leave his current position as CMO at MasterCard Worldwide to join the auction house in early 2014 and will be responsible for shaping Sotheby’s global brand message.

He has previously held high-level management and marketing positions at Hutchison-Priceline in Asia Pacific, Proctor & Gamble and Disneyland Paris. He also currently serves as a governing co-chairman of the CMO Collective in New York.
