PALS Technology Panel Takes Shape

LAS VEGAS – Organizers of the 2013 P&A Leadership Summit have announced the details of this year’s technology panel.

“Ahead of the Curve: New F&I Technology” will convene at 3:00 p.m. on Monday, September 16, in the conference center at Paris Las Vegas. Panelists include Brent Allen of StoneEagle, Service Payment Plan’s Robert Hymen, Kumar Kathinokkula of F&I Administration Solutions, National Automotive Experts’ Kelly Price and Christina Schrank of NAC. The moderator will be Gregory Arroyo, editorial director of F&I and Showroom and Auto Dealer Monthly magazines.

“We couldn’t have assembled a better team at a better time for a more appropriate topic,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of F&I and ADM. “This is the ideal group to get any member of the industry up to speed on the latest technology, behind the scenes and otherwise.”

Gesualdo said the panel will face questions pertaining to their short- and long-term plans for introducing new technology and answering demands from dealers and agents. E-contracting and electronic signatures, mobile access to data and social media are all on the table.

“We’re going to learn not just when these decisions are made, but how,” Gesualdo said. “This session is not to be missed.”

The P&A Leadership Summit is a joint production between P&A and F&I and Showroom magazines. The event begins with a luncheon keynote and concludes shortly before the evening keynote and welcome reception for the annual Industry Summit. Industry Summit attendees can add the P&A Leadership Summit to their registration for an additional fee of $395.
