Atkinson to Deliver Featured Address at Agent Summit

LAS VEGAS — Organizers of the annual Agent Summit have announced that Jimmy Atkinson, COO of AUL Corp., will present a featured address for the 2015 event, which will be held March 2–4 at the Venetian Palazzo Las Vegas.

“Jimmy is as well-respected in agency circles as any executive in our industry today,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Agent Entrepreneur and F&I and Showroom. “He brings a veteran presence to our stage and we look forward to his presentation.”

Atkinson has tentatively titled his speech “Selling to Dealers,” and he is expected to touch on several elements critical to the success of agencies, including product penetration and dealer development.

Randy Crisorio, president and CEO of United Development Systems Inc. (UDS) and chair of the Agent Summit advisory board, said he expects Atkinson to find a receptive audience at the event.

“‘Selling to Dealers’ is undoubtedly the critical piece in personal growth,” Crisorio said. “Training, Coaching and Technology have no role until we acquire a dealer client, and Jimmy is perfectly suited by time and success to address the Agent body.”
