Goebel, Ziegler to Headline Dealer Summit

January 06, 2016

TAMPA, Fla. — Organizers of Dealer Summit announced that Greg Goebel and Jim Ziegler will speak at the 2016 event, which will be held May 3–5 at the Sheraton Tampa Riverwalk Hotel.

“The number of hours Greg and Jim have spent working directly with dealers to improve their operations is incalculable,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Auto Dealer Today and F&I and Showroom. “We are honored to welcome both of them to Dealer Summit.”

Goebel is a former auto dealer who now serves as president and CEO of DealerStrong. Widely considered to be the industry’s leading special finance trainer, he conducts in-dealership consultation and training sessions and is a frequent speaker and prolific writer.

​“It is an honor to be a part of this tremendous event which will be a valuable opportunity for dealers and their teams,” Goebel said. “I look forward to sharing insight on the special finance industry, its direction for the coming year, and how dealers can profit more from it.”

Ziegler is president of Ziegler SuperSystems Inc. and reigning two-time winner of the Dealers Choice Award for Sales Training. He reaches dealers in the field and through contributions to ADT and F&I and a massive network of digital platforms.

When asked to share his thoughts on the conference, Ziegler described himself as “pumped, energized and electrified,” and said, “I will deliver.”

“Dealer Summit will connect dealers and dealership managers with trainers, experts and thought leaders at the vanguard of a rapidly changing industry,” Gesualdo said. “I can’t wait to hear what they have to say.”

Registration for Dealer Summit is expected to open soon. For information about exhibition and sponsorship opportunities, contact David Gesualdo at (727) 947-4027 or via email.
