LAS VEGAS — Agent Summit organizers announced the members of its 2018 advisory board. The board will set the agenda for this year’s four-day event, which will begin on May 20 at the Venetian & Palazzo Resort Hotel Casinos in Las Vegas.

“For the first seven years, each agenda seemed to outdo its predecessor in the quality and scope of speakers and topics,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Agent Entrepreneur and F&I and Showroom magazines. “We owe much of the success of Agent Summit to our advisory board. We thank them for their time and attention and look forward to their contributions.”

Chaired for the sixth year running by United Development Systems (UDS)’s president and CEO, Randy Crisorio, this year’s board includes:

  • Craig Almon, founding partner, Pro Consulting
  • Matt Croak, president, Wise F&I
  • Lyle King, senior vice president, NFP Auto Group Services
  • Matt Nowicki, vice president of retail software, IAS
  • Tom O’Neil, president of new business development, Brown & Brown of KY
  • Kurt Orcutt, president, Accelerated Service International (ASI)
  • Gil Van Over, founder and president, gvo3 & Associates

The group represents a cross-section of agents, executives and F&I product experts. Van Over, who serves as executive director of Automotive Compliance Education (ACE) is the first full-time compliance expert to serve on the board. ACE certification will be available to agents in attendance for the second consecutive year.

“One superb year after another for agent across the country!” Crisorio said. “Now Agent Summit VIII — yes, ‘eight’ — presents the opportunity to propel the idea exchange to new heights. This board will most certainly work hard to achieve the pinnacle of value this year as we all look to increase our rewards.”
