Compliance Summit Panel to Include F&I Pro, Experts, Editor


LAS VEGAS — Organizers of the upcoming Compliance Summit have announced that a panel dedicated to “Your Responsibilities” will include an award-winning F&I director, two compliance experts and a member of the Auto Dealer Today editorial team. The event will be held Aug. 29–30, 2016, at Paris Las Vegas as part of the annual Industry Summit.

Justin Gasman, finance director at McCaddon Cadillac Buick GMC in Boulder, Colo., and F&I and Showroom’s reigning F&Idol winner, will be joined on the panel by Michael Tuno, founder and president of ARMD Resource Group, and Max Zanan, president of Total Dealer Compliance. Tariq Kamal, managing editor of Auto Dealer Today and contributor to several additional industry publications, will serve as moderator.

“This is exciting,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Auto Dealer Today and F&I and Showroom. “Tariq and his team bring four distinct perspectives to a challenging subject. I can’t wait to hear what they have to say.”

The panel, “Leadership, Teamwork and Accountability,” will begin at 2:35 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 29. The group is tasked with laying out the important first steps attendees must take to fall in line with government standards and protect F&I profitability.

“This diverse group is the ideal combination for the topic, and they are going to make my job easy,” Kamal said. “We are going to equip every attendee with the information they need to start forming a plan for compliance and sustainable productivity.”

Compliance Summit attendees are also invited to attend any Industry Summit session and sit for the Certified Automotive Compliance Specialist exam, both for no additional charge.

Tuno to Tackle ‘Your Responsibilities’ at Midwest Compliance Summit


CHICAGO — Organizers of Compliance Summit, a series of regional events dedicated to front-end compliance, have announced that agency head Michael Tuno will serve as featured speaker at the Midwest event, which will take place April 20–21, 2015, at the DoubleTree Chicago O’Hare in Rosemont, Ill.

“Michael and his team exemplify the role of the ‘full-service’ agency, which in today’s dealership space, includes front-end compliance,” said David Gesualdo, publisher of Auto Dealer Monthly and F&I and Showroom magazines. “He has succeeded by doing business the right way and we are grateful he has agreed to share his strategies with the dealers in attendance.”

Tuno will present “The Ability to Respond” at 11:40 a.m. on Tuesday, April 21, to lead off the “Your Responsibilities” segment of the agenda. The president of World Class Dealer Services said the current regulatory environment and recent actions demand that dealers be “embedded” in their businesses to respond to inquiries and protect themselves from undue harm.

“The scope of the presentation will be to provide some updates to the legal landscape as well as giving the audience some practical takeaways they can put right to work in their dealerships,” Tuno said. “It will be straight to the point without too much legal doctrine.”

More information about the show, including registration and travel information, is available at ComplianceSummit.com. For sponsorship and exhibition opportunities, contact Eric Gesualdo via email hidden; JavaScript is required or call 727-612-8826.
