Paul Titchmarsh has been appointed as UK forecast manager by Cap HPI.

Titchmarsh joins the automotive data firm from JCT600, where he held several senior positions, most recently as operations director. He has also worked in the fleet and rental sectors for Zenith and Global Autocare.

Titchmarsh said: “I’ve worked with Cap HPI in various roles over the years and grew to respect the expertise of the team and the power of the data they provide to the industry. 

“It’s great to be a part of the team now, and I look forward to supporting the team in the future.”

Titchmarsh replaces Jeff Knight, who retired from Cap HPI in June.

Cap HPI head of forecast strategy Dylan Setterfield said: “Jeff is a familiar face in the industry, and he spent over 23 years at Cap HPI, making an invaluable contribution to the company and the wider automotive sector. 

“He was a hugely respected team member, whose expertise and extensive experience were valued by colleagues and customers across the board.  

“We’re pleased to welcome Paul onboard and look forward to benefitting from his insight from a career that spans multiple sectors and senior roles at some of the industry’s most respected companies.”
