Thomas became Director of SAS in 2006 having some ten years experience by this time. He worked his way up the ranks at Philips in Bath from porter to Auctioneer and Valuer and his passion for the industry and all things sparkly developed. He has a particular interest in jewellery which led to him pursuing his two jewellery and gemstone diplomas alongside his fine art valuation degree.
His specialities lie in jewellery, silver, ceramics, works of art and modern design although his wealth of knowledge makes him more than capable as a general antiques valuer.
Through his previous industry experience and antiques television work he has established himself as an accomplished public speaker and charity fundraising auctioneer.
Away from work, Thomas enjoys the countryside and the great outdoors, either in Britain or abroad.
