Who is Hugh Edmeades?

Hugh Edmeades, who was appointed in 2018 to conduct the IPL auctions by the BCCI, replaced the previous auctioneer Richard Madley and has been responsible for conducting the mega event each year ever since.
Edmeades has over 35 years of experience in conducting auctions and has led more than 2,500 auctions globally. The Brit has been a part of auctions in areas involving international fine art, classic cars, and also for those involving charities. Moreover, he has auctioned players, items, and other things in excess of 310,000 lots for a staggering amount of 2.7 billion pounds.

The Brit also has a personal website where he has given a detailed explanation of all the items he has auctioned over the years. He has experience in auctions involving paintings, fine furniture, ceramics, films, and sporting memorabilia. In 2004, he auctioned off 88 guitars belonging to Eric Clapton and raised a staggering amount of $7,438,624. Meanwhile, he was also involved in the sale of Daniel Craigs Aston Martin DB10 from the James Bonds Spectre movie for £2,434,500 in 2016.

Perhaps Edmeades biggest achievement came in December 2018 when the BCCI appointed him to be the auctioneer for the 2019 season of IPL. As a result, he became only the second individual after Madley to receive the honor and privilege of conducting the mega event.
