Cap HPI has announced the appointment of Max Robert Mueller as future car value manager for Germany as it continues to drive growth on the continent.
Mueller (pictured) will be based predominantly in Berlin and will work with an international team of editors to provide forecast analysis of Europe’s largest car market.
He has previously held senior roles at AutoVistaGroup and EurotaxGlass’s.
Cap HPI’s international forecast manager, Dylan Setterfield, said: “Max is a key addition to the team and his appointment has already had a significant impact, boosting our service offering in Germany considerably.
“He brings a wealth of valuable insight and experience of the market which will prove crucial as Cap HPI’s expansion gathers apace, especially in Germany, a key international territory for the business.
“Having worked with some key players in the sector, Max’s knowledge and passion for the business means we have a first-class German-based market expert at the forefront of our forecasting function, helping to deliver our ongoing international rollout.”
Mueller will work closely with relevant sector areas of the German automotive market together with the company’s wider team of analysts.
In recent months, Cap HPI has enhanced its industry insight team through a number of external appointments and internal promotions.
The main brunt of which happened in 2017 with the appointment of Debbie Capell data operations director, John Dennis as UK sales director, Chris Wright’s promotion to managing director and Amanda Hardcastle as head of human resources.
Mueller said: “This is a tremendous opportunity and I‘ve joined cap hpi at a very exciting stage in its international expansion strategy.
"I’m very happy to be here at this stage of the journey, which means I can use my expertise to contribute to this growth plan and play a really positive role in the expansion activity.
“There is a very impressive team ethos at cap hpi and it’s a very dynamic working environment. This commitment translates very well to the automotive market and will be of great benefit to customers across all sectors of the industry.”
Cap HPI has had used values and forecasting data services in Germany and France since September 2017, enabling the German and French motor industries to benefit from a new globalised approach to vehicle data.
This year Italy, Spain, Belgium and the Netherlands are due to be added to the product offering, allowing businesses to take a truly unified view of global trends for the first time and see efficiencies across all operations that require used vehicle data.
