Our Team

Matthew Elton

Founder | Managing Director | Auctioneer

After 10 years in London brokering corporate sponsorship deals, Matt decided it was time for a change. Moving to Singapore, he set out on a new, tech-driven adventure, connecting buyers and sellers with authentic, eclectic (and fantastic!) items of quality.

Always dynamic and fiercely passionate, when Matt became The Accidental Auctioneer, he found his vocation instantly. Whether curating live or online auctions, he always encourages “re-use and recycle” over buying brand new. For Matt, sourcing from the secondary market is not only smart and fun, it’s also sustainability in action.

Matt’s goal is to modernise the auction house experience and create something accessible to everyone, whether you’re collecting or disposing. Under his guidance, the HotLotz e-commerce platform has grown into a community of treasure hunters, offering new ways to browse, bid, buy and sell!
