We are expanding our Auction team with the appointment of Oliver Childs, formerly of Savills Commercial Auction department.
Oliver, who will join as Director, specialises in private sector lots acting predominantly on behalf of property companies, banks, receivers and private clients.
Private sector experience adds “another string to our bow”
Commenting on Oliver’s appointment, Ezra Nahome, CEO, said: “We see Oliver’s appointment as adding another string to our bow. His private sector expertise, married with our existing Auction team’s considerable experience in selling for the public sector, will make for a well rounded team.”
Oliver added: “I am delighted to be joining the established Auction team. I am confident the contacts I have developed during my 16 years in the industry will enable us to establish ourselves further in to the private sector sales area and expand the firm’s auction and capital markets service further.”
Building on a strong public sector base
We expanded our service offering to include an Auction team in July of last year with the appointment of the former Colliers International Auction team, Simon Riggall, Richard Argles and Graham Johnston.
Simon, Richard and Graham have a strong presence in the public sector having sold for over 200 Local and Central Government bodies, raising around £945m in the last six years alone. Our February auctions, taking place in Sheffield and London, include over 100 lots from more than 14 public sector bodies.
