Ac­com­plished clas­sic car auc­tion­eer, mar­ket com­men­ta­tor and founder of His­torics at Brook­lands, Ed­ward has bal­anced his love of the Austin Seven with the more eso­teric in his past, in­clud­ing the odd Tes­tarossa, As­ton Martin, Porsche and more be­sides.

Emanuele Collo Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Kid­ston SA, Geneva

While still at uni­ver­sity, Collo con­tacted Si­mon Kid­ston ask­ing for work ex­pe­ri­ence. The move paid off – he’s now the com­pany’s man­ag­ing di­rec­tor. He has a soft spot for ho­molo­ga­tion spe­cials but that hasn’t stopped him buy­ing a Mercedes-benz 300SEL 6.3 restora­tion project.

Stephen Hal­stead Chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer, JBR Cap­i­tal, Lon­don

Hal­stead has a fi­nance back­ground and his long-stand­ing in­ter­est in clas­sic cars made a per­fect fit with an op­por­tu­nity to grow high-end ve­hi­cle fi­nance provider JBR Cap­i­tal. His own pref­er­ence is for V12 en­gines and he aims to get a Fer­rari with one up front.

Maarten ten Holder Chief auc­tion­eer, RM Sotheby’s

Ten Holder is also the Sotheby’s ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent and head of Europe. Dur­ing a 25-plus-year ca­reer that has spanned the globe, his first en­counter with cars came in 2005 when the first ‘Sotheby’s at Fer­rari’ auc­tion was held at the Fer­rari fac­tory in Maranello.

Tim Schofield Di­rec­tor, Bon­hams Mo­tor Car Depart­ment
