John Black

Head of 20th Century Design | Director


Pursuing a love of art and design that developed during his years exploring his grandmother’s shop as a child, John joined the team at Sworders in 2001, and has since shaped this passion into a career, transforming the way his colleagues appreciate modern design movements.

As a director, auctioneer and valuer he is enthused meeting new and old acquaintances in and away from the industry and loves leading a successful Design department that has grown into one of the ‘go to’ sales for iconic design items in the UK.

Having time to listen, appreciate and understand the needs of different clients, John believes Sworders can offer a service unrivalled within the industry.

Never far from the office, he enjoys pottering in the garden, watching his three sons grow far too fast and splashing about in boats.
