Dawsons Announce the Appointment of Jonathan Pratt as Managing Director


Dawsons Auctioneers are delighted to announce the appointment of Jonathan Pratt as Managing Director. Jonathan joins the business following 5 years as MD at Dreweatts and 12 years as MD at Bellmans.   

Chairman and Founder Ben Haynes said, ‘I am thrilled that Jonathan has joined us. From the moment we first met, it was clear we share the same vision regards how a professional, innovative auction and valuation business should operate.  He brings unrivalled sector experience and will spearhead our continuous quest to deliver the highest levels of customer service to our clientele, whether they be buying or selling with Dawsons”. 



Dawsons provide professional, discrete current market valuation and sales advice for Fine Jewellery, Watches, Fine & Contemporary Art, Antiques, and family heirlooms. Fine sales are broadcast live across multiple auction platforms to a global audience of over 10 million active bidders for maximum exposure, whilst innovative in-house marketing direct to buyers all over the world, allied with creative social media posts, ensures that Dawsons achieve the highest returns for clients. 

With an auction logistics centre in Maidenhead Berkshire, a valuations office in Hampstead London, and Nationwide coverage, Dawsons’ sole focus is to achieve the maximum possible sale results for clients, through expert evaluation and multi-channel marketing. 



Jonathan said “I am very excited to join the Dawsons Management team. Whilst it is one of the youngest auction houses in the country it has already developed one of the best jewellery departments outside London. Dawsons is in a great location for serving London and the home counties and with the Hampstead office I believe Dawsons has real potential for further growth in other specialist markets.”
