Marc du Plessis
As General Manager, Marc is heavily involved with the day-to-day workings of our company and with much of the customer contact. It’s a position we like to think he was born for, as he attended his first company auction at just two days old. Now having tallied up thirty plus years in the industry and with particular expertise in European paintings, 18th century & earlier furniture, and sporting memorabilia, he is responsible for maintaining our high standard of items for sale. Marc is also our auctioneer with his own unique style whilst offering some light-hearted moments. Marc is a past President of the Society of Auctioneers and Appraisers (SA) and a multi-award winning auctioneer.
