About Christopher Elwes
I started life as an auctioneer and was involved in the creation of Christies South Kensington before buying into Bonham’s, which at that time was a struggling unprofitable family business. Despite starting at the beginning of a deep recession and being undercapitalised, I built a profitable business with sales in excess of £32m which we sold in 2001.
