A Partner in Arnolds Keys, Roy leads the Keys Fine Art Auctions side of the business, specialising in valuations, in particular for special sales.  He has overall responsibility for the Auctions team, and keeps his hand in as an auctioneer himself.  Roy originally joined the firm on the property side, but moved across to the auctions side in the early 1970s.

Born and bred in Norfolk, he is married with two adult sons.  He is a keen traveller, having visited many parts of the world including Australia, New Zealand, the Caribbean and much of Europe.  Back in Norfolk, he is an enthusiastic gardener, and also keep bantams to keep his family supplied with fresh eggs.

Roy is a passionate Norwich City supporter, and lists his unfulfilled ambition as wanting to be able to buy the club a star centre-forward to elevate the club to its rightful place at the top of English football.
