Robin Hereford joined Bonhams in 1998. He was made Departmental Director of the Valuations, Trusts & Estates Department in 2007, and in 2017 was made Bonhams Director of Private Clients.

Robin has been responsible for the sale of many large single-owner collections including 'The Zimmerman Horological Collection', 'The Delphinium Collection', an important collection of early 18th Century Meissen porcelain, and the estate of the 4th Viscount Churchill, which included important works by Fabergé, Sir John Lavery and many Royal presentation gifts. Sales that Robin has overseen include three single-owner auctions of property from 'The Severin Wunderman Collection' which featured an important group of works by Jean Cocteau, and 'Poetry: The Roy Davids Collection', probably the finest assemblage of poetry manuscripts ever offered at auction.

Career highlights have included the sale of exceptional artworks by Stubbs, Dali, Giacometti, Lowry and Frink, alongside more unusual items such as Lord Lucan's writing desk and original manuscripts by Isaac Newton and Ernest Shackleton.

As a Director of the Valuations, Trusts & Estates Department, Robin also handles valuations for insurance, probate and sale, as well as market valuations for tax and estate planning purposes.
