Mark Stephenson spent three years as VP/Director of Customer Relations at PCGS
Heritage Auctions has announced that Mark Stephenson, an attorney with nearly 20 years of experience in virtually all aspects of the coin collecting hobby, has joined its Beverly Hills office as a Consignment Director.
“Mark is an accomplished expert in every part of coin collecting,” Heritage Auctions President Greg Rohan said. “Consider the important roles that allow success in coin collecting – operations, accounting, management, grading, buying and selling, marketing, e-commerce, inventory software development, photography, cataloging – and he has a background in all of it. His foundation of knowledge immediately strengthens Heritage’s footprint in coin collecting in California, and expands our worldwide reach within the hobby.”
Stephenson comes to Heritage Auctions after spending three years as Vice President/Director of Customer Relations at Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), a division of Collectors Universe, where he was responsible for the company’s bulk division and oversaw customer service.
He previously served as General Manager, In-House Counsel and Chief Financial Officer at Excellent Numismatics in Malibu, California, managing day-to-day operations, overseeing inventory control, operations, shipping and receiving, legal, administrative and accounting aspects of the business, and was an Operations Specialist at Malibu Coin Company.
In addition to his experience in numismatics, he also was a founding partner of Jackson & Stephenson LLP, a Los Angeles-based law firm where he oversaw the firm’s litigation practice and advised corporate clients in business and legal matters.
