I have a passion for motorcycles, especially Ducatis. Every summer I go for a 3,000-mile, 10-day ride from my home just south of London, across France to Switzerland, and end up in Italy, then repeat in the other direction!

I started horse riding when I was about 4 years old, and dreamed of being a jockey!

My first job after leaving school at 16 was working in a chandlery. Sailing is another hobby of mine.

I  love unpretentious fine food and wine, especially California wines like zinfandels by Martinelli Jackass Hill (love that name!) and Turley, as well as Flowers’ pinot noir.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
