With over 35 years' experience in the fine art and auction industry, George is best known for his career at Sotheby's as a key member of the firm's European management team and as an exceptional auctioneer.
In March 2013, George launched The Auction Room, an innovative 'on-line only' auction portal, that has enjoyed marked successes with sales of notable collections including Middle Eastern Contemporary art from the Saatchi Gallery and Scottish paintings from the Fleming Collection. The Auction Room will continue to trade as an online auction platform running its own calendar of sales in addition to hosting regular Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions and other third party events.

Prior to this, he had a number of senior finance roles in industry and was a partner in the London office of Price Waterhouse. He qualified as a chartered accountant in 1982.
