AFIP’s Robertson Joins PALS Roster

LAS VEGAS — Organizers of the annual P&A Leadership Summit have announced that David Robertson, longtime executive director of the Association of Finance & Insurance Professionals (AFIP), will serve as a featured speaker at the event, which is scheduled for Aug. 30–31 at Paris Las Vegas.

“In his training, Dave’s primary focus is on personal integrity and accountability, but the value of the products AFIP-certified F&I professionals sell is not far behind,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of P&A magazine. “His message is an important one, and we are honored to bring him to the PALS stage.”

Robertson’s address, “Carrying the Torch to Light the Flame,” will begin at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 31. He is expected to discuss the role of F&I product providers and agents in delivering and maintaining a positive message about the many benefits products such as vehicle service contracts, GAP coverage and appearance protection, among others, bring to car buyers.

“My presentation is a call to action that identifies grassroots initiatives and collective public awareness campaigns to ensure that car buyers continue to look first to the selling dealer for these time-tested services,” Robertson said.
