Mark Holloway, Founder

Holloways of Ludlow has been run by CEO Mark Holloway since 2002 but was founded in 1985 by Holloway’s stepfather Bob Dickinson as Dickinson’s Architectural Antiques with the guiding principle that nothing should be thrown away, but instead salvaged and restored. Holloway has continued in that entrepreneurial vein, gradually and successfully evolving the business into a multi-brand retailer, showcasing a broad range of products that span 20th century iconic pieces to future classics from the finest contemporary suppliers, hand-selected by him.

Holloway, who studied engineering at Oxford before working as a management consultant leads his 40-strong team with enthusiasm and passion, believing that keeping his company nimble, proactive, and reactive enables them as a business to grow and adapt.
