Petrowski, Feldman to Lead Reinsurance Symposium


LAS VEGAS — Organizers of the annual Agent Summit have announced that Greg Petrowski of GPW and Associates Inc. (GPWA) and Brian Feldman, executive vice president of Spencer Re, will headline this year’s Reinsurance Symposium, which is scheduled for Monday, March 2, at the Venetian Palazzo Las Vegas.

The Reinsurance Symposium will kick off with a Meet & Greet With Reinsurance Sponsors at 12:30 p.m. At 1:00 p.m., Petrowski, who serves as GPWA’s senior vice president, secretary and treasurer, will lead a session on controlled foreign corporations (CFCs). He helped spark interest in reinsurance education among agents in 2012, when he appeared in a Q&A-style presentation with Randy Crisorio, president and CEO of United Development Systems Inc., at that year’s Agent Summit. The first Reinsurance Symposium was held the following year.

“Greg is an expert and a thought leader in the reinsurance segment, and we appreciate his continued support of Agent Summit,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Agent Entrepreneur and F&I and Showroom. “He is one of the main reasons Reinsurance Symposium is a standing room-only event.”

After a sponsored refreshment break, Feldman will take the stage at 2:10 p.m. to deliver a presentation on non-controlled foreign corporations (NCFCs). A 20-year veteran of the automotive insurance and reinsurance industry, Feldman held executive positions with GMAC Insurance and Allstate Dealer Services before joining Spencer Re.

“Limitless demand from dealers creates limitless opportunities for agents,” Gesualdo said. “Brian is uniquely qualified to get our attendees up to speed on this important component of a mutually beneficial reinsurance program.”

Feldman’s session will conclude at 3:00 p.m., shortly before the commencement of Agent Summit, which will continue through midday Wednesday. The symposium is open to any Agent Summit attendee holding a full show pass.

Crisorio, who also chairs the Agent Summit advisory board, added that he was enthused about the content of the reinsurance presentations, as they will include information that will be new to many in attendance and, as a result, agents will be well-armed to return to their markets with a better-defined strategy to sign more deals.
