End of year retirement brings changes to the cap hpi forecasting team

Andrew Mee will depart in December as Dylan Setterfield maintains lead responsibility

23 November 2020: Andrew Mee, Head of Forecast UK at cap hpi, is retiring at the end of 2020, after a long and successful career in the automotive industry and is looking forward to a well-earned retirement.

Mee, who, alongside Setterfield, has been a central figure of cap hpi’s response to the global Coronavirus pandemic this year, has decided the end of this year is a suitable time to bow out: “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.”

After a short stint in the Merchant Navy and then a longer spell as a Mathematics teacher, Mee began his automotive career with Lex Vehicle Leasing in 1983, before moving on to take responsibility for residual value setting and risk management at Lloyds TSB Autolease (which later became Lex Autolease). He joined cap hpi in 2013, initially impressing as Commercial Manager, before switching to lead the forecasting team in 2016.

The rest of the forecast team remains in place and Dylan Setterfield, the original architect of cap hpi’s forecast methodology, will maintain overall responsibility for the UK team. “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,” said Setterfield.

Chris Wright, Managing Director, cap hpi added: “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.”
