Brian Witherell

COO, Consignment Director


Brian was raised in Healdsburg, California. He received his B.A. in Criminal Justice from Sonoma State University before joining his father in the family business. He claims there are parallels between the two fields, as they both require great detective skills to be successful. That’s what he loves about this business, the discovery of hidden treasures.

When Brian is not working as the company’s Consignment Director he likes to golf, fly fish, run, hike and go camping with his family.

Brad Witherell

President


Brad was raised in Philo, California, the same town his great–grandfather settled after arriving in the West in 1860.

As a teenager he worked for his great uncle, taking in antique guns in exchange for payment. One such gun was a Henry rifle, a prized weapon of the American West.

That gun sparked an interest in Brad that would guide the rest of his life. While Brad has bought and sold many categories of Western Americana his love of antique firearms has always been his primary interest.

Bruce Marwick

Cataloguer


Antiques are nothing new to Bruce. He started as a teenager helping his father buy and sell antiques in the family business. Bruce also loved and appreciated the arts.

He attended Occidental College and received a B.A. in Studio Art. He then continued his commercial art training at Art Center College of Design and officially became an art director with such illustrious national brands such as Neutrogena, Nissan, Toshiba America and Sunkist.

In 2010, he took a road trip traveling the entire length of Route 66 from Chicago to the Santa Monica Pier. Seeing the sights of this historic highway reminded Bruce of his love for history, art, and antiques. All his skills and passions are now put to use as a Witherell’s Cataloguer.

Bruce also volunteers for non-profits such as the Sacramento Art Deco Society, as a board member, and Preservation Sacramento.

Amara Follett

Office/Operations Manager


Originally from the small town of Placerville, CA, a town full of rich history, Amara packed up her bags to earn a B.A. (with an emphasis on youth education) at Sacramento State.

After experiencing a job or two, antiques piqued her interest, and she joined the team at Witherell’s. Amara’s favorite thing about working here, is helping to bring the wonders of the past to a new generation.

In her spare time you will catch Amara walking her German Shepherd/Husky puppy, volunteering, reading historical fiction or catching up on her favorite flicks.

Benjamin Pulido

Photographer/Videographer


Ben grew up in Jamestown, CA, a foothill community where antiques now abound as gold once did in the 1850s. Following his interest in film editing, he attended the The Art Institute of California – Sacramento receiving a B.S. degree in Video Production.

Antiques have always interested Ben, so it’s no surprise he found himself photographing them. “It never gets old; the job, not the antiques,” says Ben.

Portraits by the beach are his favorite pastime and he hopes to one day live in San Diego to feed his hobby. For now, he indulges at the local breweries and enjoys cruising the Sacramento River Trail.
