Crisorio to Bring ‘Dealer Beware’ to Texas


AUSTIN, Texas — Randy Crisorio, president and CEO of United Development Systems Inc. (UDS), will deliver the welcome address at the upcoming Texas Compliance Summit, organizers said Wednesday. The event is scheduled for Nov. 16–17, 2015, at the Hilton Austin Airport.

“Anyone who has seen Randy in action will understand why he is the ideal candidate to kick off Compliance Summit,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Auto Dealer Today and F&I and Showroom. “He is as dedicated to front-end compliance as he is to dealer development, and he approaches the former with equal parts gravitas and humor.”

Crisorio’s address, “Dealer Beware,” will serve as the starting point for Texas Compliance Summit, which will begin with a reception on the evening of Monday, Nov. 16, and continue with a full slate of featured speakers and panel discussions the next day. Crisorio is expected to discuss the growing influence of regulators on dealer operations and review past actions taken by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and state attorneys general.

“As the automotive dealership compliance culture continues to be shaped by regulatory curveballs, it is critically important that our retailers are informed and up to date on this moving landscape,” Crisorio said. “This is the third Compliance Summit, and as it moves across the country, it continues to pick up speed in interest and attendance as retailers need to know where the guardrails are. Those not in the know may well be in dangerous territory and not know it.”

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. For sponsorship and exhibition opportunities, contact Eric Gesualdo via email hidden; JavaScript is required or at 727-612-8826.

Midwest Compliance Summit Promises ‘Can’t-Miss’ Agenda


CHICAGO — Organizers of Compliance Summit, a series of regional events dedicated to front-end compliance, have announced that the agenda for the Midwest event is nearing completion and will feature high-profile compliance experts and thought leaders. The conference is scheduled for April 20–21, 2015, at the DoubleTree Chicago O’Hare in Rosemont, Ill.

“This will be an event to remember for those who attend,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Auto Dealer Monthly and F&I and Showroom magazines. “We look forward to bringing the talent, expertise and boots-on-the-ground experience dealers need to tackle this very difficult subject.”

April 21 will feature a full day of sessions divided into four key topic headings: Rules and Regulations, Your Responsibilities, Easy-to-Implement Processes and Controls and Is This Compliant? The last will be an open-forum discussion among speakers and attendees. Robert Harkins, vice president and director of training for AFG Training Academy, will serve as master of ceremonies.

The welcome address, “Dealer Beware,” will be delivered by Randy Crisorio, president and CEO of United Development Systems Inc. (UDS). Crisorio, a Chicago native, is expected to review recent and ongoing actions taken against dealers by state and federal regulators, including the Federal Trade Commission and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

“Having experienced the quality of content exchanged in the first Compliance Summit and the tenor of the regulatory bodies involved in our business, I anticipate a lot of interest in attending and a heavy dose of growing useful information,” Crisorio said.

Further details, including the full agenda and information about registration and accommodations, will be available in the coming weeks. For sponsorship and exhibition opportunities, contact Eric Gesualdo via email hidden; JavaScript is required or call 727-612-8826.

Crisorio Named Compliance Summit Keynote Speaker


HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — Organizers of the first-ever Compliance Summit have announced that Randy Crisorio, president and CEO of United Development Systems Inc., will deliver the event’s opening keynote address, titled “Dealer Beware.” He is expected to address facts and fines attributable to a few bad actors and, more importantly, how to stay out of the crosshairs of what many believe to be government overreach.

“The history of a few is shading the future for all of us,” Crisorio said.

The event will be held November 10–11, 2014, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla. Crisorio will take the stage at 1 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 10, kicking off an afternoon of educational sessions that will continue all day Tuesday.

“As an agent, trainer and product provider, Randy demanded compliance long before it was a trending topic,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Auto Dealer Monthly and F&I and Showroom. “He is the ideal keynote speaker for this important event.”

Compliance Summit is a series of four regional events. November’s conference will be followed by events in the Midwest, South and West in 2015. The events are expected to draw dealers as well as senior staff, sales and F&I personnel, compliance officers, general agents and more.
