FAST-GROWING vehicle valuation, forecasting and data insights business Cazana’s new sales director Steve Worrell continues the strengthening of its management team with a CV including being former national manager of cap-hpi and sales director of Glass’s.
Worrell takes immediate responsibility for driving growth of the company in all areas of the business, including the UK automotive trade, that has an extensive database of more than 650,000 used vehicles listed.
Throughout his career, Worrell has gained extensive experience building links with vehicle manufacturers and leasing organisations, during 12 years spent at cap-hpi, four years at Glass’s – where Cazana’s director valuations Rupert Pontin previously headed the valuation team – and latterly at Essential Fleet Services.
Worrell is now working closely with CEO Tom Wood and Pontin, to cement the company’s position as a key real-time data and insight provider for the corporate sector.
He said: “I’m joining Cazana at a time when the automotive industry is seeing an unprecedented period of change, largely driven by digital platforms.
“The market is ready for a new approach from data and insight partners. We firmly believe that our data science-led methodology based on real time big data coupled with invaluable people, data assets and business tools, will add value to any business dealing with vehicles.”
From first registration through to disposal, Cazana provides key information about a vehicle’s life, including both its build and sales history.
One of its key differentiators is its artificial intelligence system, which mines current and historic vehicle databases for trends and anomalies, ensuring key insights help businesses reduce and eliminate risk with all transactions and maximise on their ROI.
CEO Tom Wood commented: “The way people are buying and selling vehicles is rapidly evolving, driven primarily by the increasing use of digital platforms.
“Cazana remains at the forefront of this, providing a wealth of real-time data to manufacturers, finance and leasing companies to help them reduce transactional risk through a greater understanding of residual values.
