Lunt to Deliver Opening Keynote at Compliance Summit Las Vegas


LAS VEGAS — Organizers of Compliance Summit have announced that attorney and compliance expert Aaron Lunt will deliver the opening keynote address at the inaugural Las Vegas event. The conference will be held Aug. 29–30, 2016, at Paris Las Vegas, as part of Industry Summit.

“Aaron is an engaging, informed speaker and an expert on the effect of regulatory pressure on the sale of F&I products,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Auto Dealer Today and F&I and Showroom. “We are counting on a stirring and informative presentation.”

Asked to preview his presentation, Lunt listed a number of hot-button topics facing dealers, agents and product providers in a rapidly shifting compliance landscape.

“The motor vehicle service contract industry is under incredible pressure with the emergence of new technologies, distribution channels, and product features. However, I believe the most significant pressure is being applied through increased compliance and regulation,” said Lunt, who serves as assistant general counsel and head of regulatory affairs for The Warranty Group. “While state regulation has been commonplace for decades, the emergence of new players — such as various state attorneys general — are injecting increasing influence.

“Additionally, federal regulators have become incredibly active in influencing the inner workings of the F&I office and financing agreements — with more, not less, regulation on the horizon,” Lunt added. “It remains to be seen how the election of a new president in November will affect this evolution.”

Registration for Compliance Summit Las Vegas is open at the event’s website. Attendees are welcome to take part in the rest of Industry Summit, and those who register by July 29 will enjoy a $100 discount. Attendees are also invited to sit for the Certified Automotive Compliance Specialist exam for no additional charge.

Aaron Lunt to Join Texas Compliance Summit as Featured Speaker


AUSTIN — Organizers of the upcoming Texas Compliance Summit have announced that Aaron Lunt, assistant general counsel and head of regulatory affairs for The Warranty Group, will serve as a featured speaker at the event, which is scheduled for Nov. 16–17, 2015, at the Hilton Austin Airport Hotel.

“As regulators have applied increasing pressure to our industry, Aaron has emerged as a leading voice of reason,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Auto Dealer Today and F&I and Showroom. “We are honored by his continued presence at our events.”

Lunt appeared as a panelist at Midwest Compliance Summit in April and delivered “The CFPB’s Impact on the F&I Industry,” the opening keynote address at September’s P&A Leadership Summit. Before joining The Warranty Group, Lunt, an Illinois-licensed attorney, handled a variety of insurance regulatory issues as an executive with a large commercial insurer.

“I’m honored to provide an update on the CFPB’s activities in the auto finance segment at the Texas Compliance Summit in November,” Lunt said. “The automotive industry is under increasing regulatory pressure — requiring manufacturers, dealers and service partners alike to evolve at a rapid pace. I look forward to an informative and interactive discussion with session attendees as we consider the risks and opportunities this evolution presents.”

Registration for Texas Compliance Summit is open at the event’s website. Attendees who register on or before Oct. 26 will enjoy a $100 discount. More information, including the full agenda, will be available soon.

Midwest Compliance Summit’s Processes and Controls Panel Takes Shape


CHICAGO — Organizers of Compliance Summit have announced that the Midwest event, which is scheduled for April 20–21, 2015, at the DoubleTree Chicago O’Hare, will include a panel discussion devoted to Easy-to-Implement Processes and Controls.

“This panel is a key part of our ongoing effort to equip dealers and managers with the tools they need to develop strategies for sustainable front-end compliance,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Auto Dealer Monthly and F&I and Showroom magazines. “Attendees should consider this the ‘nuts-and-bolts’ section of the agenda.”

The panel will be led by Brian Crisorio, vice president of marketing for United Development Systems (UDS). Panelists will include Doug Fusco of DealerSafeGuardSolutionS (DSGSS), American Financial and Automotive Systems Inc. (AFAS)’s Demetrios Lahiri, The Warranty Group’s Aaron E. Lunt Esq. and Brian Reed of Intersection Technologies/F&I Express.

Crisorio expects the group to convert the knowledge gained in the preceding portions of the Summit into actionable solutions.

“Knowing is always only half of the battle,” he said. “Doing is the other, tougher, half. This panel will lay down some simple solutions that will make the ‘doing’ much easier.”
