Jon's education doesn't stem from a classroom, but instead an MOT centre in Newport at the age of just 10 years old. His wealth of experience brings unrivalled knowledge to Whitson Prestige.

He started his esteemed career at the family-run dealership in 1983, when he was just a young teen. His dad hired a tent on wasteland next to his MOT centre to run a car auction from and the business quickly grew. By 1995, Jon and his wife Fay had taken over the running of the company leading it to become one of the UK's most successful car auctioneering businesses selling thousands of vehicles every year.

After 20+ years at the helm of Newport Auctions - and over 250,000 car sales - Jon sold the business in 2017. Now, almost four decades after selling his first car, he dedicates his time and expertise to ensuring the quality and high standard of Whitson Prestige.

Together, the father and son duo are committed to bringing this heritage to the luxury car market, offering unfaltering service and ensuring ultimate customer satisfaction, whatever vehicle you're looking for.
