The Pacific Auction Company was founded in 2003 by Avery & Steven. The business was a natural extension of their passion for giving back and helping others. Steve had built a career as a professional fundraiser and was the VP of Development for a major national health charity, while Avery was an accomplished accountant and business manager. Prior to that, both Avery and Steve worked in rural development in Latin America; Avery in Mexico working with impoverished woman farmers, while Steve taught beekeeping as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Paraguay. Having spent seven years in Latin America, Steve is a fluent Spanish speaker and enjoys doing bilingual auctions whenever possible. Both Steve and Avery hold Masters degrees in International Non-profit Management from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey. Yes, they met as students!
All of us at the Pacific Auction Company are grateful to our clients for spreading light in the world and entrusting us with their auctions. Together, we are changing the world!
