Jonathan Collingbourne, Managing Director
Jon has a wealth of knowledge and experience within the automotive industry. From a young age, Jon has lived, breathed and worked with cars. As a young teen in 1983, Jon worked in the family-run business, Newport Auctions, when his dad hired a tent on wasteland next to his MOT centre to run a car auction from. The business quickly grew and by 1995 Jon and his wife Fay had taken over the running of the company leading it to become one of the most successful Auction Houses in the UK, selling thousands of vehicles and general items every year.
After over 30 years in the auction industry and over 250,000 plus car sales, in November 2017 he made the decision to sell the business to Wilsons Auctions.
