Sotheby’s taps wireless expertise

Dennis Weibling, who is on the board of Nextel Partners and has served on the boards of Nextel Communications, XO Communications and Teledesic, has been elected to board of the parent company of Sotheby’s worldwide auction businesses.

Weibling, who today is the managing director of Kirkland-based Rally Capital, currently serves as “a trustee of trusts” of Keith McCaw’s estate.

I have been impressed with management and members of the board and believe the company is well positioned to take advantage of its growing worldwide opportunities. I look forward to playing a future role in this exciting business.”
