Owner and Auctioneer Dave Jacob

David grew up in the auction business. Ever since he was able to crawl into the truck with his dad on his own, he was going to auction sales. He knew that that was what he wanted to do when he grew up. In 2011, it came time for Dave to make a career decision. He was gainfully employed, but wanted to be more involved in the auction business and so he left his employer and joined his dad in the auction business and Jacob Auctions Ltd. was founded. He has never looked back. Dave now calls over 150 different auctions every year. Beyond his own auctions, he also contract auctioneers automobile, farm, and horse sales. Dave likes to stay involved in his community and is the auctioneer at many charity events throughout the year. He has served the Auctioneers Association of Ontario for over a decade serving in all seats including a term as President. He is currently serving as a Regional Director. Dave is also, currently sitting on the board of directors for McKillop Mutual Insurance in Seaforth, Ontario.
