‘Is It Compliant?’ to Cap Texas Compliance Summit


AUSTIN — Organizers of Texas Compliance Summit have announced that the event, which is scheduled for Nov. 16–17, 2015, at the Hilton Austin Airport Hotel, will conclude with “Is It Compliant?”, an open-forum discussion among speakers and attendees.

“’Is It Compliant?’ offers attendees the chance to pose any lingering questions to a diverse panel of speakers,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Auto Dealer Today and F&I and Showroom. “It’s also a great opportunity for the dealers, compliance officers and F&I professionals in the crowd to share their own expertise.”

The panel will begin at 5:35 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 17. Bob Harkins, vice president of training for American Guardian Warranty Services (AGWS) and the event’s master of ceremonies, will serve as moderator.

Harkins will be joined by Randy Henrick, associate general counsel for regulatory and compliance matters for Dealertrack; Karen Klees, credit compliance specialist for EFG Companies; Alessandro “Al” Meloni, a finance manager at Transwest Buick GMC Isuzu in Henderson, Colo.; Marla Rhen, vice president and compliance officer for San Antonio’s Gunn Auto Group; and David Robertson, executive director of the Association of Finance & Insurance Professionals (AFIP).
