Angus Adam has been appointed as Managing Director at Morton Auctioneers & Appraisers in Houston, Texas.
Born in the United Kingdom, Angus Adam was educated at the Stowe School, whose magnificent grounds gave him an early appreciation for the arts. At the age of nineteen, he joined the family business, Antique Dealers, founded in 1961 and spent several years working in New York with their agent. Antique Dealers dealt primarily with period English and Continental furniture. This inspired him to spend his life working in antique dealing and auctioneering, and he possesses extensive knowledge of period furniture.
A member of the British Antique Dealers Association, he also chaired at BADA Fair in London, Olympia Art & Antiques Fair and LAPADA Fair in Berkeley Square. Angus Adam is looking forward to developing Morton as the first in its class in Southern auctioneers and putting together an enthusiastic team for the company.
