A new hand on the gavel at Barons

As it embarks on a busy sale calendar for 2017, Barons is introducing a new face onto the podium, with the appointment of auctioneer Duncan Brown. Duncan has nearly 20 years experience with some of the UK’s biggest independent automotive auction houses, and has owned classic cars since his teens. 

"My passion for classic cars grew from a young age. My father collected and restored cars ranging from MG TCs and Triumph Roadsters to Mini Mokes and various wartime Jeeps. Ever since I restored my own first car, an original VW Beetle bought for £200, I've been a lifelong VW enthusiast and currently own an original 1983 Mk1 Golf GTi plus a 1959 Splitscreen Kombi that I'm in the process of restoring. I love to get my hands dirty in the garage working on cars nearly as much as I do selling them on the rostrum. It gives me great pleasure to join the team at such an established auction house as Barons, and I can't wait for the first auction of 2017, on February 28th at Sandown Park," he said. 

Commenting on the new appointment, Barons’ Auction Manager, Tim Gascoigne, said, “We’re really pleased that Duncan is joining the Barons team for 2017. He’s energetic, enthusiastic, and personable on and off the rostrum, so we know he’ll be a great asset to us as we continue to grow our business.”
