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.

Reinsurance Symposium Boosts Agent Summit Registrations


LAS VEGAS — Organizers of the third annual Agent Summit say the announcement of the first-ever Participation & Reinsurance Symposium has led to a surge in registrations.

“I believe we’ve upgraded our one-of-a-kind event with a one-of-a-kind pre-conference event,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of F&I and Showroom magazine. “The level of interest from around the industry is truly unprecedented.”

The four-hour symposium is scheduled for Monday, March 4. It will begin at 1 p.m. and conclude shortly before the official opening of Agent Summit, which runs through midday on March 6. The schedule will include four workshops: Retros, Dealer Obligor and Dealer-Owned Warranty Companies, Controlled Foreign Corporations (CFCs), Non-Controlled Foreign Corporations (NCFCs) and Investing the Cash.

“This single afternoon leading up to the launch of Agent Summit 2013 is clearly a don’t-miss event,” said Randy Crisorio, president and CEO of United Development Systems Inc. and head of the conference’s advisory board.
