Cristiano Bierrenbach started trading coins in his native Rio de Janeiro at the age of seven before founding his own successful numismatic business. In 1996, he established one of the first numismatic shops on eBay and later became the youngest Technical Director of the Brazilian Numismatic Society at the age of 30. Cristiano joined Heritage and moved to the United States in 2007. Under his leadership, Heritage World and Ancient Coins auction sales grew steadily from $12.8 million in that year to $41.5 million in 2011, the year he became a partner. Cristiano developed the market for Heritage online-only automated auction venues, which today feature more than sixty events per year. In World Coins alone, these auctions exceed $12 million annually. Since 2015, Cristiano has been at the forefront of Heritage’s international expansion into Europe and Asia, and will continue to expand the company’s international footprint in the future.
