He rejoined the firm in 2005 to head up the London Silver Department, and joins Woolley and Wallis from this position. He is extremely well known in the industry, being a freeman of the Goldsmith's Company, and a member of the Silver Society, the Silver Spoon Collector's Club and the Decorative Arts Society.
