It has been announced today that Cap Automotive has appointed Adrian Rushmore as their new operations director. Rushmore was previously employed by Cap’s competitors Glass’s Information Services, with whom he worked with for twenty six years. Both Cap Automotive and Glass’s Information Services provide motor traders and potential car buyers information on second hand vehicles using new technologies such as apps that can be downloaded to phones or tablets.
CAP CEO, Ian Rendle, said: “Adrian is one of the most well respected figures in the automotive business information industry and he brings with him a deep knowledge of our key markets together with a thorough understanding of customers in all of our commercial sectors. We are delighted to welcome him into what will undoubtedly prove one of the most challenging and rewarding roles in the company’s history as we continue to drive investment into skills and quality for the benefit of our customers.”
There is an increasing demand for products that provide reliable information on used cars as they can reveal facts about the vehicle that sellers may try to hide, such as whether the car has ever been in an accident, how many miles the car has driven, and whether the car is illegally still on the road. By having this information before buying a vehicle, motor traders won’t have to solely rely on their motor trade insurance should they find that the vehicles they purchased are not what were promised.
Rushmore’s role at Cap Automotive will include overseeing the development of new products and services, and he will also assume overall responsibility for improving their forecast valuations and technical data covering cars, vans, trucks and motorcycles. Discussing the new role, Rushmore said: “I’m delighted to take the opportunity to be at the centre of a business committed to investing in the best market expertise, innovation and quality. I also look forward to leading a team which puts the customer at the forefront of everything it does. This is a very exciting time to be joining CAP and helping to shape the future of a business focused on investing to drive excellence and future growth.”
