There’s nothing like a classic Rolls Royce: the smell, the leather seats… I love it!
Michael Footitt is never actually working. That's because he can stay busy with his passion all day long: classic cars. He is especially passionate about Lamborghinis, Jaguars, Rolls-Royces and Ferraris. Already in his teens, he worked with these cars in his father's company. Michael Footitt is largely engaged in importing luxury vintage cars from the United States to the United Kingdom for his auctions, but also at the request of collectors. In doing so he has travelled a lot around the world and has through this built up a huge international network.
To reduce the number of flight hours, Michael Footitt started working for Catawiki. He uses his international network to get interesting cars into the auctions, which he then thoroughly inspects. He ideally wants about thirty pictures of each lot so that he can feel as if he is walking around the car. But still he trusts his instinct, which has never let him down. This way, Michael Footitt aims to curate high quality auctions, with which he can put Catawiki on the map worldwide.
