Vehicle data firm Cap HPI has announced that its head of forecast UK, Andrew Mee, will be retiring at the end of 2020.
He has worked for Cap HPI since 2013, initially as commercial manager, before switching to the forecasting team in 2016.
He previously worked for Lex Vehicle Leasing and Lloyds TSB Autolease.
Mee, alongside head of forecast strategy Dylan Setterfield, is said to have been a central figure in Cap HPI's response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Mee said: "It's certainly been a year unlike any other, but I have had a wonderful career and I am sorry to say goodbye to everyone in the industry and at Cap HPI. I do know I am leaving our forecasts in excellent hands and our customers have no need to be concerned."
Cap HPI says the rest of the forecasting team remains in place, with Setterfield - the original architect of the firm's forecast methodology - maintaining overall responsibility.
Setterfield said: "I'd like to heartily thank Andrew for his sterling efforts over the last seven years, and we will certainly miss him, especially since current restrictions prohibit us from giving him a traditional Cap HPI send off!
"He deserves a long and happy retirement after his significant contribution to the industry."
Cap HPI managing director Chris Wright said: "I know that colleagues and customers alike will be very sorry to see Andrew go and I'd like to personally thank him for his outstanding contribution to Cap HPI.
"We wish him all the very best in his retirement and I know that Dylan and the UK forecast team will deliver a seamless transition for our customers."
