Name: Marcus Willis


Title: Chief Operating Officer

Role: When he’s not greeting the postman delivering yet another car book or getting lost in the depths of the Girardo & Co. Archive, our resident research guru Marcus Willis is not only adding value to the cars we encounter, but also helping to safeguard their futures by extensively fact-finding and investigating their histories.

From collectors and renowned marque historians to history-steeped restoration workshops and archivists, there are few people in the collector car world who Marcus doesn’t regularly engage with, all in the name of research.

In authenticating and uncovering the remarkable stories of many of the world’s most significant cars, Marcus has forged a reputation that’s led him to judge prestigious international concours events such as the Cavallino Classic in Florida and the Ferrari 70th Anniversary Concorso d’Eleganza in Maranello.
