Tara Newell to Deliver PALS 2016 Keynote

LAS VEGAS — Organizers of the upcoming P&A Leadership Summit have announced that attorney Tara Newell will deliver the evening keynote address at the event, which will be held Aug. 30–31, 2016, at Paris Las Vegas.

“PALS would not be possible — nor practical — if we were not able to deliver high-powered content relatable to executives at the high levels of the P&A segment,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of P&A magazine. “We are honored to welcome Tara to our event, and I can’t wait to hear what she has to say.”

A partner in the New York law firm of Bryan Cave LLP, Newell brings expertise in transactions, corporate finance and security, financial technology and more. Her address, “Positioning Your Business for the Future,” will begin at 5:05 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 30.

“Companies in the F&I space have unique considerations when planning for the future, whether that means a management transition, bringing in an investor or selling,” Newell said.  “I’ve worked with companies in this industry on both sides of the negotiating table, and look forward to sharing insights on how to position businesses for optimal outcomes.”

Registration for the 2016 P&A Leadership Summit is open now. Attendees who register by July 29 will save $100. To inquire about sponsorship and exhibition opportunities, contact David Gesualdo via email hidden; JavaScript is required or at 727-947-4027.
