Jamie Walker

Associate Director and Head of Commercial Vehicle Auctions

I'm a bit of a soft-touch for a classic Beemer!

There’s no other way to say it, I am a car nut!

Before joining the Car Auctions team in 2015 as a Graduate, I had been blessed / cursed with a brain seemingly capable of storing facts and figures for countless cars that had served no purpose other than obstructing my studies and boring friends to tears!

My particular interest includes the ‘nineties’ and ‘noughties’ BMWs coupled with modern classics from German manufacturers (can you spot the pattern?). I admire the engineering and attention to detail these marques devoted to their cars during the period.

However, at Hobbs Parker I found a career which not only allows me to put my knowledge of vehicles from throughout the spectrum to good use but best of all surrounds me with like-minded colleagues and customers in a fantastic working atmosphere.

I am now Head of our Commercial Vehicle Auctions and am thoroughly enjoying this role. We are planning on growing this important part of our auction service which has enjoyed considerable success in recent months.

Outside of the office, I am slowly but surely working my way through the Formula 1 calendar, next stop is France and a win for Red Bull I hope! Plus I’ll be getting behind the wheel on track myself this year to explore the capabilities of my own project BMW 330Ci.

When I finally hang the car keys up I enjoy sampling real Ales in pubs around Kent and then cooking at home with friends and family.
