Born and educated in the Netherlands, Julian’s enthusiasm for cars was sparked in the early Seventies at a very early age by his grandfather in Dublin who owned a gleaming new Jaguar XJ6 at the time. That sleek silhouette, the sparkle of chrome and the smell of wood and leather was too much to resist, and Julian was lost to the dark side forever!
While reading Law at Leiden University, Julian attended the Rolls-Royce School of Instruction and became a part-time test-driver and head demonstrator for the Dutch Rolls-Royce, Bentley & Lamborghini distributor, driving the most beautiful and exclusive cars all over Europe for their clients.
After having joined the R-REC in 1990 at the age of 16, it didn’t take long for fellow club members to recognise Julian’s passion for and knowledge of classic and exclusive cars, so he soon found himself being consulted on the purchase and sale of collector cars and assisting members in finding the right vehicle(s) to add to their collections. He has been doing freelance ever since, combining it with his full-time jobs in Real Estate Management, Estate Agency and at the U.S. Embassy in The Hague.
A self-confessed petrolhead Julian has owned several interesting cars, including a 1972 Mini 850, an Alfa Romeo 156 and for well over the last decade a 1976 Bentley T1 so the trials and tribulations of classic car ownership are well known to him.
Always looking to meet and exceed customer expectations, Julian’s goal is to make sure every H&H customer is delivered the expected outcome but also gets to enjoy the entire experience from start to finish.
