Cap HPI is expanding its senior editorial team to create a centralised data and knowledge hub for international markets, from its base in Leeds.
Adrian Rushmore moves to a global role as editorial operations director with responsibility for coordinating used and future value teams, and new vehicle data in the UK and around the world. Derren Martin is promoted to international car editor.
James Dower joins Cap HPI as senior editor of Black Book. He was previously sales and marketing manager at Network Q, and has previously held management positions in a number of dealer groups, including Pendragon, Reg Vardy, and Robins and Day.
Adrian Rushmore said: “We are creating a larger team that will give us a greater concentration of talent under one roof. The team will service our UK and international operations from a knowledge hub in Leeds, a city already recognised as a global centre for data industries.
“Our international expansion will deliver real benefits for our customers as we retain the knowledge and experience of our editorial teams in the business, and add international data, market insight and intelligence.
“Our international expansion springboards from the expertise we have gained in the UK over the decades, and combines with the latest technology to drive new insights, new valuation methodologies, and data tools to support the automotive industry.”
The company’s global expansion follows the recent integration of teams from Cap and HPI by its global parent Solera.
