The company plans to spend at least $25 m (£15) developing the site. Susan Solomon, former president and CEO of Sony Worldwide Networks, will become CEO of sotheby's.com and executive vice president at Sotheby's Holdings. The auctioneer plans to host a baseball memorabilia auction online and off-line this summer.
