Managing Director – Stanley Gibbons Investment

Armed with an MA in Modern Languages from Cambridge University, Keith spent seven years at Singapore Airlines as Head of Market Development, raising the airline’s market share from 6th to 3rd in the UK and securing strategic partnership with the Australian Tourist Commission and key tour operators.

Keith then moved into commercial roles in the wine industry with Madaboutwine, Fosters, Laithwaites and Averys Wine Merchants, significantly increasing wine consumption in the UK and beyond!

In 2009, Keith joined Stanley Gibbons as Group Marketing and Investment Director where he has overseen the opening of the Group’s new investment offices in Hong Kong and Singapore to support the growing market in Asia and has expanded the investment offering to include rare coins, manuscripts and limited edition prints.

Keith has developed several new indices (listed on Bloomberg Professional™ terminals) to provide transparency for investors, in conjunction with the company’s rare stamp and coin experts and has trebled turnover in what is certainly an unrepresented asset class.

Keith has been instrumental in launching new investment products and bringing on a suite of multi-million pound investors. He will be turning his focus to new international markets in the coming months as well as expanding the investment offering further following the Group’s acquisition of Noble plc at the end of 2013.
