Cap HPI drives European expansion
Cap HPI has made a number of key appointments in line with its plans for growth in key European markets.
The automotive data expert is building new vehicle description and specification data, current and future values and TCO, in the first phase of its growth plans, and will reinforce its insight and data services with a new global coding system that it unveiled at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.
Cap HPI is initially developing its presence in Germany, France, Spain and Italy and has made a number of key individual appointments.
In Germany, Bodo Klein joins from Jato, and takes on the new role of commercial vehicle editor for the local market.
In addition, an entire new vehicle data team comprising of eight analysts has been assembled in Slovakia. The team will be co-ordinated from the European head office in Leeds by Greg Ball, new vehicle data Manager, who took up the post after moving from EurotaxGlass earlier this year.
Antoine Auby joins the expanding Analytics team as modelling analyst for France. He joins from Laboratoire D’Aerologie (Toulouse) where he worked as a Scientific Software Engineer.
Finally, Attila Thury has been promoted to modelling analyst to complete the team of three data engineers who are working on the statistically based valuation system to be rolled out across Europe in 2017.
Adrian Rushmore, operations director at Cap HPI, said: “We are delivering the first phase of our international expansion plan, and the fact that we have added so many new recruits to our European teams, shows our firm intention to deliver on our objectives. 2017 will mark our arrival in Europe and we already have very impressive foundations in place to build on this throughout the rest of the year, and beyond.
“Continuing to attract new talent to grow our data and insight teams is a key priority, both in the UK and internationally, and we are actively seeking automotive experts to help us take our international data and used vehicle knowledge capabilities to the next level.”
Cap hpi is currently seeking car & LCV valuation editors in France, Spain and Italy as well as new vehicle data researchers in Germany, France, Spain, and Italy. For more information please contact the HR Team [email protected] or visit the Cap HPI careers site at www.cap-hpi.com/en/careers.
