I was a car enthusiast long before moving into the automotive industry and have owned an eclectic mix of specialist cars over the years. 
In 2005 I left behind 18 years in the finance sector (including 3 years working for Tom Walkinshaw) and formed Driving Adventures, a company specialising in sports car tours and still enjoy the pleasure of running this company today. 

In 2008 I formed a business specialising in the sale of sports and prestige vehicles. It was through this that I met our MD, Nick Whale and it soon became apparent that our ideals were very much in line so it was clearly a matter of time before we took the natural step to work together. 

In 2011 I became a joint owner of Nick Whale Sportscars, a journey which led us into the leisure industry forming Nick Whale Motorhomes which today proudly displays over £4m of new and used motorhomes from our dedicated site near Evesham. 

In parallel to this expansion, Silverstone Auctions and subsequently Classic Car Auctions have quickly grown to become leading auction houses in this very special market and along with a growing team of specialists I joined as Finance Director in early 2017.  

It’s a pleasure to work with such a dynamic group of individuals within a market which has been my passion since my very earliest memories.
