Classic car expert ready to launch more auctions
Hobbs Parker Car Auctions has appointed a new associate director.
He is James Johnson, who joined Hobbs Parker in 2009. He has played a key role in looking after a large number of the company’s corporate clients, traders and private sellers.
Mr Johnson has extensive experience in the remarketing of cars and a detailed understanding of their respective values and has become a trusted adviser to many of the South East’s leading dealerships.
Nick Johnson from The Barretts Group said: “James has always been extremely helpful, has a wealth of knowledge within the car industry and is a great ambassador for Hobbs Parker Car Auctions. I would like to wish him every success for the future.”
James Johnson has a passion for and in-depth knowledge of classic cars and launched Hobbs Parker’s first classic car auction in 2013 which proved to be hugely popular. Now in its sixth year, he hopes to extend this to two or more classic auctions a year to add to an already busy auction calendar.
Mr Johnson also has an encyclopaedic knowledge of all things Formula 1.
Jon Chapman, managing director of Car Auctions, said: “Since the start, James has worked tirelessly with an enormous amount of enthusiasm and has made a huge contribution to the success and growth of our car auction business. He is very well liked and has become respected throughout our industry within the South East.”
James Johnson said: “This is something I have worked hard for and I feel rewarded for my efforts. I’m really looking forward to the new challenges ahead.
“Hobbs Parker is a unique firm and the car auction team are second-to-none.”
Hobbs Parker holds approximately 125 auctions each year.
