LAS VEGAS — Organizers of Agent Summit have announced that United Development Systems Inc. (UDS)’s Randy Crisorio will chair the event’s advisory board for the fourth straight year. This year’s conference is scheduled for May 9–11 at the Venetian Palazzo Las Vegas.

“Randy has been an earnest supporter of Agent Summit from Day One, and his leadership has consistently produced comprehensive and hard-hitting agendas,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Agent Entrepreneur and F&I and Showroom magazines. “We can’t wait to see what his team comes up with this year.”

Crisorio serves as president and CEO of UDS, the Clearwater, Fla.-based agency and F&I training provider he founded in 1982. As in years past, he will be tasked with assembling the Agent Summit advisory board and building an agenda focused on the business development and educational needs of independent general agents and agency heads.

“Each year, the board works hard to ‘one-up’ the previous year, and the feedback we receive each summit grows in confidence and strength, making this year a serious challenge,” Crisorio said. “Yet given the power of an outstanding automotive market, attendance is again expected to outpace, and I have a vision of 1,200-plus for 2016. The greatest content yet is being assembled right now! See you there.”
