James Harvey

Founder and Managing Director of The Auction Hub

With 30  years of art world experience in both auction and retail, James started his career at Phillips Auctioneers, followed by a period working in London and New York for Mallett.  More recently James was CEO of The Fine Art Auction Group with auction and retail businesses in Berkshire and London. “Having worked for a leading  regional  auctioneer and as a consultant, I saw the opportunity for an online auction house that upheld the values of traditional auctioneers whist embracing new technology that provides a solution for both the volume and specialist areas of auctioneers. Combining forces with Auctionet provides the platform that enables us to deliver these solutions”.
