NEW YORK, NY.- LiveAuctioneers.com CEO Julian R. Ellison has announced the appointment of Jamie Dwelly, M.A., to the newly created position of Business Development Director, UK. Dwelly will divide his time between LiveAuctioneers’ offices in Greater London and Folkestone.

“Our company has been experiencing an exponential level of growth over the past few years, and the market that seems most receptive to LiveAuctioneers right now is the UK,” said Ellison. “Jamie will act as a liaison between the New York-based parent company and the many auctioneers in Britain who are asking about Internet live-bidding services available through LiveAuctioneers.com.”

Dwelly, 43, is originally from Kingston upon Thames. He has had a lifelong interest in fine art. After receiving a B.A. degree in the History of Drawing and Printmaking, Dwelly went on to earn a Master of Arts degree in History of Art from the prestigious Goldsmiths University of London. For his thesis, Dwelly investigated surrealism through the genius of Hans Bellmer.

Following his academic endeavours, Dwelly spent 15 years as a non-executive director in the arts sector. He also worked for the BBC.

A talented writer, Dwelly was a contributor to the British periodical The Idler. He is also an accomplished motorsports journalist who enjoys riding and racing classic motorcycles in his free time.

Dwelly has travelled extensively across Europe. “I am a fan of the Italian Renaissance and have driven long distances to view church frescoes that can only be seen in situ. My greatest passion, however, is Northern Renaissance art – particularly the works of Brueghel and Hieronymus Bosch,” Dwelly said.

Dwelly’s fine arts background makes him a natural for his new position, Ellison said. “I have known Jamie for 18 years, now. He is deeply absorbed in art and antiques, and I can’t think of anyone better suited to represent LiveAuctioneers in the United Kingdom. With his educational background and experience, he thoroughly understands the world of art and auctions. He will be a tremendous asset to our company.”
