Our History
Don Cowan began his career in 1988 when he joined Ross-Dove Company, a small family owned auction firm in Foster City, California, as its sixth employee. Given a desk, phone and a directory of high technology companies Don was charged by Kirk and Ross Dove to, “go find some auctions.” Thirty-days later Don signed up his first auction and began a remarkable journey of success. Don spent nearly a decade at Ross-Dove Company and continued his success with stopovers at Great American Auctioneers & Liquidators and as cofounder of Cowan Alexander LLC, before launching Don Cowan LLC.
