Chris Routledge


Coys of Kensington has been auctioning fine automobiles since 1919, and continues to pack its auction calendar with events at some of the most glamorous locations in the world, from Blenheim Palace to the Mondial Automobile in Paris.

Chris Routledge joined the firm in 1991, serving as its MD before becoming CEO in 2015. ‘Buy what you like, not what you’re told to buy,’ is his advice. ‘Seek your own counsel aesthetically, emotionally and romantically.’ Coys’ ability to bring the best marques under the hammer is down to its enviable client database and a wide network of contacts that keeps its catalogues circulating globally. Preview auctions are held at its London HQ.
