From October 2021 Lord Carrington of Fulham will take over as honorary president of the British Antique Dealers’ Association, replacing interim president Roger Keverne.

New incumbent Lord Carrington brings to the Association a wealth of experience from business and politics. He is also a passionate collector of antiques, with interests ranging from furniture and clocks to samplers. He is known to be a customer of a number of BADA’s members.

Matthew Carrington’s earlier business career was in banking, where he worked for the First National Bank of Chicago and the Saudi International Bank. In more recent times he has been deputy chairman and then chairman of Gatehouse Bank plc, chairman of the Outdoor Advertising Association, chief executive of the Retail Motor Industry Federation and a non-executive director of Aston Martin Lagonda plc.

In politics Lord Carrington was Member of Parliament for Fulham until 1997. Under John Major’s premiership he served as a Whip and was chairman of the Treasury select committee. He was created a peer in 2013.

At present he is a director of a firm of marketing and branding consultants and a non-executive director of the Arab British Chamber of Commerce.

Speaking about his appointment Lord Carrington said,

“It gives me great pleasure to accept the post of president of BADA. I have had a lifelong interest in antiques and follow with interest the sector’s successes and challenges.

“I am looking forward to meeting the members in their galleries and at fairs, and to representing the Association as we move out of lockdown”.

Louise Phillips from Elaine Phillips Antiques Ltd, Chairman of BADA, said,

“We welcome Lord Carrington at what is a difficult time for both the antiques trade and the UK. His wide ranging business experience and understanding of Parliament and the art market will be of benefit, not only to BADA, but also to the wider trade, and I look forward greatly to working with him”.
