‘Govern or Be Governed’ Panel Takes Shape

LAS VEGAS — Organizers of the annual P&A Leadership Summit have announced the members of the first of three panel discussions at this year’s event, which will be held Sept. 9–10 at Paris Las Vegas.

“Govern or Be Governed” will be staffed by executives from several of the industry’s leading F&I product providers. Steve Amos, president of GSFSGroup, will join David DeCredico, senior vice president of business development at EasyCare, Doug Frey, executive vice president and COO of Allstate Dealer Services, Mark Macek, president of United States Warranty Corp., and Kelly Price, president of National Automotive Experts.  Tim Meenan, an attorney and managing partner of Meenan PA, will serve as moderator.

“With Tim Meenan at the helm of an all-star team of thought leaders from the provider segment, expectations are high,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of F&I and Showroom and P&A magazines. “This panel understands that the threat of perpetually stricter rules and regulations affects them as well as agents and dealers.”

The discussion is expected to address the lack of guidance from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) in the insurance space and how self-governance, such as consistent pricing of F&I products and caps on markups, could help keep regulators from taking an active interest in the segment.

Registration for the P&A Leadership Summit is open now. Attendees who register by Aug. 7 will enjoy a $100 early-bird discount. More information, including additional speakers and travel, is available at the event’s website.
