Portrait Of ODSgrey

Olivier graduated from one of Europe's leading business schools, ESCP in Paris, and is a qualified Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA). Prior to taking over Spink he had a 15 year career in investment banking, 13 of which were with JP Morgan Group and predecessor firms, including working as Managing Director based in Singapore for Equity Capital Markets and Mergers & Acquisitions in the region. He has acted regularly for government linked companies in Singapore and across the region and as such is used to the highest standard of corporate governance. Equally he has dealt at Spink with the most advanced and demanding collectors in the world, including members of Royal Families, industry leaders, Central Bankers and Hedge Fund Managers.

Olivier started building his stake in Spink in 2003 and has been the Chairman and CEO since 2005. He has been a stamp collector for 35 years and, among several other prestigious collectors' clubs, is a member of the Royal Philatelic Society. He is married with three children.

Olivier has been involved in all the firm's most prestigious assignments of the past decade - he has over 500 auctions under his belt and hence is one of the most experienced practitioners. He likes to lead from the front and is passionate about collectables, fine wines and cigars.

Although he stopped being a competitive rower long ago, he still loves to burn off his excess energy in treks with his family and friends.
