Tash Perrin is an auctioneer at Christie’s, the world’s largest auction house, which sells billions of dollars of art, jewelry, and luxury goods each year.
In addition to her role as an auctioneer, Perrin serves as Senior Vice President and Senior Director of Trusts, Estates & Wealth Management Services at Christie’s International, which means she represents Christie’s at conferences across the country and assists clients through major sales around the world.
When she’s in New York City and not traveling for work, Perrin told Business Insider she wakes up at 5:45 a.m. every day. She works out with her personal trainer or goes for a run along the Hudson River, sometimes with her dog, Ryndie.
She says being an auctioneer is like “conducting an orchestra,” because it requires juggling many different aspects, like keeping track of the numbers and “being the showman.”
Here’s a look at a typical day in her life.
