Managing Director, European Division
Peter Wallman joined RM Europe in 2007 following nearly two decades in the international advertising industry, where he was based out of New York, London, and Milan. It was in Milan where Peter gained experience buying and selling collector cars and learning to speak fluent Italian in the process. As an RM Car Specialist, Peter was responsible for consigning a superb single-owner collection of 20 motor cars from Italy for the inaugural and record-breaking Automobiles of London auction.
Peter, a dedicated collector of vintage automobiles, including his daily driver, a Gunmetal Grey 1961 Jaguar E-Type Fixed Head Coupe, has extensive knowledge of British sports cars from the 1950s and 1960s. He has had hands-on experience with restoring and driving classic cars since he first got his license, and he is client-service oriented.
Peter is also responsible for business development at RM Sotheby’s. As such, he strives to continually evolve the RM Sotheby’s buyer profile by targeting emerging markets and leading global brands with a similar client profile to that of RM Sotheby’s. Peter was most recently responsible for consigning the superb Laidlaw Competition Car Collection, which was sold in London in September 2013.
