LAS VEGAS — Organizers of the upcoming Agent Summit announced that agency principal Martin Wildgoose will lead a panel discussion devoted to “Profit Opportunities” at the event, which is scheduled for May 9–11, 2016, at the Venetian Palazzo Las Vegas.
Wildgoose is the owner and business development manager of Alternate Insurance Management Services Inc. (AIM Inc.,) in Temecula, Calif. His panel, “Get It All!,” will begin at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 10. Wildgoose will be joined by RoadVantage’s Bradford Blizzard, Brett Hutchinson of PermaPlate, Kelly Price of National Automotive Experts and Wise F&I’s Ben Wren.
“Any single member of this group is qualified to find new profit opportunities for agents and dealers,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Agent Entrepreneur and F&I and Showroom. “Together, and with an experienced and talented agent like Martin Wildgoose at the helm, we expect a lively and valuable session for all in attendance.”
The panel is expected to focus their discussion on how agents can grow their agencies and dealer business by expanding their F&I product lineup beyond the core vehicle service contract and GAP offerings.
“I feel honored to be asked to moderate a group discussion about a subject dear to my heart,” Wildgoose said. “As a general agent, we offer every imaginable paper product to our franchised and nonfranchised dealerships. Sometimes it is overwhelming trying to be an expert in so many arenas; however, we believe the finance office should offer a range of products attractive to many consumers and not just focus on a few high-grossing core products and services. I am looking forward to learning more from the opinions of these industry experts on the panel.”
Registration for Agent Summit is now open at the event’s website as well as by phone, fax and email. Attendees who register by April 8 will enjoy a $100 discount.
