Ron Brigham, PresidentSince the age of nine, Mr. Ron Brigham has been sorting his way through stamps. He has exhibited his extensive collections of Canada competitively since 1997 garnering multiple awards worldwide. His Pence and Cents exhibit is the collection of Canada to have won a World Championship (Belgium, 2001). In late 1998 Brigham, Canada’s premier collector, decided that there was room for an additional auction firm in Canada. He specifically felt that an auction firm with a vision of “Specializing in the art of philately’ should be put together and should be “run by the collector for the collector”. He was elected a fellow of the Royal Philatelic Society of Canada in 2002, and is the only Canadian member of the Club de l’Élite de la Philatélie de Monte-Carlo."
