Speaking about his new role, Akhitar added: “I have seen the growth of Euro Auctions in Dubai and across the region, from the early beginnings when the company took over the site at Jebel Ali Free Zone. Whilst known globally, the brand had little profile in the UAE, but now, having worked hard over the last five years, Euro Auctions has an excellent reputation in the region and are seen as the premiere auction site in Dubai. The company is seen as a trusted business partner attracting new consignors at each sale… I was also impressed with the management structure and being a privately-owned business there is real sense of family, with all of its employees working as a cohesive team and all members having a real ‘can do’ attitude.
Euro Auctions’ last Dubai sale was on June 28th. Its next sale will be at its partner company in Florida, USA on September 2nd, followed by its European Online Multi-Location sale on September 16th.
