Texas Compliance Summit Names ‘Your Responsibilities’ Panelists


AUSTIN — Organizers of Texas Compliance Summit have announced that three dealership personnel will take part in a panel discussion at the event, which is scheduled for Nov. 16–17, 2015, at the Hilton Austin Airport Hotel.

Sean Hudspeth and Dena Moore of Wichita, Kan.-based Davis-Moore Auto Group and Marla Rhen of San Antonio’s Gunn Auto Group will join Tariq Kamal, managing editor of Auto Dealer Today, for “Leadership, Teamwork and Accountability” at 2:35 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 17. The session belongs to the “Your Responsibilities” portion of the Compliance Summit agenda.

“To have a panel staffed entirely by working F&I and compliance professionals is a sign that Compliance Summit is on the right path,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Auto Dealer Today and F&I and Showroom. “Their boots-on-the-ground experience and Tariq’s industry acumen should combine for a lively and informative discussion.”

Hudspeth and Moore serve as director of HR and risk management and finance director, respectively, for Davis-Moore. Rhen is Gunn Auto Group’s vice president and compliance officer. They are expected to share their hard-earned advice for designing, implementing and enforcing a sustainable plan for front-end compliance.

“I can’t thank Sean, Dena and Marla enough for making the trip to Austin for the sole purpose of improving the takeaway for our attendees,” Kamal said. “The value of their experience is incalculable. I can’t wait to get started.”

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

Texas Compliance Summit to Feature ‘Your Responsibilities’ Panel


AUSTIN — Organizers of the upcoming Texas Compliance Summit have announced that Tariq Kamal, managing editor of Auto Dealer Today, will lead a panel discussion entitled “Leadership, Teamwork and Accountability” at the event, which will be held Nov. 16–17, 2015, at the Hilton Austin Airport Hotel.

“We are counting on Tariq and his panel to shift our focus from the theoretical aspects of front-end compliance to the practical application thereof,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of ADT and F&I and Showroom. “We expect a hard-hitting discussion that will result in useful strategies and advice.”

The panel, which falls under the “Your Responsibilities” portion of the agenda, will be staffed by dealership personnel and experts from the compliance and F&I training segments. Kamal helmed a similar panel at the Midwest Compliance Summit in April.

“In Chicago, the conversation ranged from state and federal regulations to econtracting, deal-jacket audits and the Better Business Bureau,” he said. “We will reconvene in November to deliver the compliance content Texas dealers need and demand.”

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.

Midwest Compliance Summit Panel to Highlight ‘Your Responsibilities’


CHICAGO — Organizers of Compliance Summit have announced that a panel has been convened to discuss “Your Responsibilities” at the Midwest event, which will be held April 20–21, 2015, at the DoubleTree Chicago O’Hare in Rosemont, Ill.

“This section of the agenda cuts to the heart of the question Compliance Summit was designed to answer,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Auto Dealer Monthly and F&I and Showroom magazines. “What responsibilities do dealers, compliance officers and F&I professionals actually bear when it comes to front-end compliance?”

The panel will include JC Cramer, who serves as compliance director for Detroit’s Feldman Auto Group and spoke at the inaugural Compliance Summit, in Miami, last November, as well as Bill Kelly, a partner in the Minnesota-based Automotive Development Group (ADG). Kelly will discuss the role agents can and should take in ensuring compliance standards are taught and reinforced at their dealerships. The panel will be moderated by Tariq Kamal, managing editor of Auto Dealer Monthly.

“Our plan is to drill down to the compliance issues Midwest dealers face on a daily basis,” Kamal said. “We will tackle those issues head-on in true Compliance Summit fashion.”
