About Louis Palafoutas
Louis Palafoutas, President of Morgan Gold, has played a major role in transforming Morgan Gold into one of the premier rare coin and gold bullion companies in the United States. Well known and respected in the industry for his integrity and professionalism, Louis began developing the expertise needed to connect with clients and at a very early age.
Louis began his association with Gold bullion and rare coins at the age of 25, when he relocated from Orange County to Los Angeles after accepting a position as a bullion trader in Beverly Hills with A-Mark Precious Metals. This presented him with an invaluable opportunity, as he began building and perfecting his knowledge of all aspects of rare and precious metals.
Louis quickly advanced to Industrial Marketing, opening an office in the jewelry district in downtown Los Angeles where he supplied gold to the manufacturing community and eventually expanded into the jewelry industry for large manufacturers with both offshore and domestic facilities where he produced annual sales in excess of 100 million dollars.
By 1998, Louis had developed an online proficiency that allowed him to create the Vintage Roadshow where he gained a vast knowledge of rare coins, jewelry, diamonds, art, antiques and collectibles while establishing a solid background in auctions and the process of creating, conducting and settling auctions, all the while, developing an extraordinary knowledge of eBay at every level, and establishing some of the largest selling accounts in its history.
Louis began the 21st Century as Vice President in charge of Operations at Superior Galleries, Inc., a publicly traded company with 50 employees, where he managed personnel and resources related to auction production, inventory management, and integrated systems while also managing vendor relationships related to equipment and technology. With an intimate knowledge of creating and developing integrated systems capable of producing and driving large numbers of e-Commerce transactions, Louis then established online accounts that have reached sales in the millions, each year, for the past ten years.
Having worked with the same core of leading industry professionals for over 25 years--including Morgan Gold's founder, Steve Deeds--Louis has helped make Morgan Gold a leader in online rare coin and precious metals sales, as well as gold-backed IRA and 401K accounts that have allowed the public a safe, time-tested method for protecting their assets.
