Auctioneer Lifetime Achievement Award 2016
David Leggat MBE, FIA (SCOT), United Auctions
David Leggat joined United Auctions at Perth straight from school in 1975 as office boy working his way up to his current position of executive chairman. He says: “As a young boy attending markets with my family I became aware of the importance of livestock markets as a means of gathering stock and offering farmers competitive pricing mechanism which could add value to their business. I hold the same beliefs today and see a good future for the auction system.” Mr Leggat will step down as chairman of United Auctions at the end of the year but will remain involved in an ambassadorial role.
