Autorola Group has announced the appointment of Andy Shields as business unit director for Indicata, its used car market analysis division.
Shields has joined Indicata from Avis Europe, where he was director of fleet and remarketing.
He was also previously vice-president for supply and sales for an internet car supermarket, and spent 10 years consulting for OEMs, dealer groups and leasing companies.
He said: "At Avis Europe I needed real time, multi-country pricing data delivered with a consistent methodology to ensure cross border comparability. Indicata genuinely delivers that."
"I used Indicata data prior to joining the team while consulting for OEMs and major dealer groups and it helped deliver radical improvements in dealer used car profitability.
"As global leader in real time used car pricing it is not just about data provision but supporting dealer groups to implement ongoing pricing management, where the whole organisation embraces and executes it from sales executives to the CEO."
Autorola Group CEO Peter Grøftehauge said: "Andy's vast experience in used cars, e-commerce and finance means he has a perfect combination of skills for his new role as head of Indicata.
"Indicata has made excellent inroads into providing data that transforms company's business revenues and used car decision-making power. We welcome Andy to the Autorola family."
