Strakers are delighted to announce that Auctioneer, Charlie Doel has joined the board of Directors having been with the company 14 years. Charlie joined Strakers back in August 2004 as a General Assistant to the Auction Department. His letter of appointment back in 2004 stated “In broad terms, we should like you to provide the support necessary to enable the department to sustain its phenomenal rate of growth and success by taking some of the pressure off its key players, notably Geoff Taylor”.
There is no doubt that Charlie has been a positive influence and integral to the development of the Auction Department, almost visibly growing in stature as he took to the rostrum midway through Geoff’s final auction, a very emotional time, and a very tough act to follow.
In many ways Charlie is the most ‘visible presence’ both inside and outside of the firm as he takes to the rostrum at every sale and clearly the auction is the highest profile event we hold on a regular basis! “I am delighted to join the directors at what is an exciting stage of the Strakers journey” Charlie Doel.
