O’Loughlin to Tackle ‘Rules and Regulations’ at Compliance Summit


LAS VEGAS —Terry O’Loughlin, director of compliance for Reynolds and Reynolds and a former regulator, will serve as a featured speaker at the upcoming Compliance Summit Las Vegas, organizers announced Tuesday. The conference will be held Aug. 29–30, 2016, at Paris Las Vegas, as part of Industry Summit.

“Compliance is one of the more unrelenting — and daunting — responsibilities that dealers face. Implementing the right policies and tools in compliance, along with applying best practices, all are proven strategies to help dealers meet those responsibilities, especially considering the likelihood for ever-increasing regulation and scrutiny,” said O’Loughlin, who served in the Florida attorney general’s office before joining the Reynolds Document Services group in 2006 as director of compliance. “Compliance Summit promises to focus on compliance as a critical business management issue for dealers, and I’m pleased to join a number of my professional colleagues in presenting at the conference and being part of the event.”

O’Loughlin’s presentation will be followed by a panel discussion; the event will also include featured speakers and panels dedicated to Your Responsibilities and Easy-to-Implement Processes and Controls and, to conclude the educational sessions, an open forum called “Is It Compliant?”

“This is not Terry’s first rodeo, so to speak, and past attendees of Compliance Summit have singled him out as an informed and passionate speaker,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Auto Dealer Today and F&I and Showroom. “When a former regulator and current industry advocate speaks, we are wise to listen.”

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.

CHICAGO — Organizers of Compliance Summit have announced that the Midwest event, which will be held April 20–21, 2015, at the DoubleTree Chicago O’Hare in Rosemont, Ill., will conclude with “Is It Compliant?”, an open-forum discussion of the topics raised in the course of the conference.

O’Loughlin Joins Midwest Compliance Summit


CHICAGO — Organizers of Compliance Summit, a series of regional events dedicated to front-end compliance, have announced that attorney and compliance expert Terry O’Loughlin has joined the Midwest event, which will be held April 20–21, 2015, at the DoubleTree Chicago O’Hare in Rosemont, Ill.

“Terry’s reputation as a dealer advocate and thought leader in the compliance space is without parallel,” said David Gesualdo, publisher of Auto Dealer Monthly and F&I and Showroom magazines. “His strategies for dealers are rooted in battles he has fought on both sides of the industry.”

O’Loughlin, who serves as director of compliance for Reynolds and Reynolds, has stood at the front lines of front-end compliance issues for the past several decades, including a 16-year tenure with the Florida attorney general’s office, where he worked with state and federal regulators to police dealers and auto finance companies. Since joining the private sector, he has worked with dealers and auto groups to decipher new rules and respond to actions and inquiries related to unfair and deceptive practices, document fraud and false or misleading advertising.

“To paraphrase the Bible, there is really nothing much new under the sun. For the most part, this is generally true of the regulating community,” O’Loughlin said. “Old laws and new laws can be addressed with the same thoughtful approach because regulators’ motives and tools remain the same. Dealers should have an orderly protocol to stay abreast of the compliance landscape and consistently respond to it. But the response needs to be tailored to the real challenges.”

O’Loughlin’s presentation, “Regulations: Where Past is Prologue,” will begin at 9:35 a.m. on Tuesday, April 21, following a welcome address by Chicago native and agency head Randy Crisorio. The Rules and Regulations portion of the agenda will begin with O’Loughlin’s presentation and continue with a panel session dedicated to the topic. Rules and Regulations will be followed by Your Responsibilities, Easy-to-Implement Processes and Controls and Is This Compliant?

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.
