Chrysler Financial Talks With F&I Managers Nationwide

June 14, 2004

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. -- In May, Chrysler Financial launched Speedweeks, a series of single-day events in 27 locations across the United States. F&I managers nationwide learned more about Chrysler Financial and shared valuable feedback with the business unit, creating opportunities to improve dealer and Chrysler Financial's overall business results.

"These day-long events are designed to present valuable information on the most current automotive financing topics, as well as to exchange ideas and discuss solutions that will drive performance," said Dietmar Exler, vice president – Chrysler Brands Marketing.

The events opened with a visual presentation, a keynote address and an opportunity for F&I managers to meet their Chrysler Financial business center team. Subject-matter experts discussed opportunities for increasing F&I profits. Question-and-answer "pit stop" sessions followed each Chrysler Financial presenation, which included these key topics:

  • Value pricing/F&I reserve/cross selling

  • Used-vehicle financing

  • Value-added products including AutOrigination, ACE featuring RouteOne and S-Tier Flexible Financing

    "Speedweeks 2004 was designed with information, ideas and relationship-building opportunities that will deliver F&I managers insight and renewed enthusiasm about automotive financing," said Klaus Entenmann, vice president responsible for Chrysler Financial. "A thriving, long-term relationship with F&I managers is a core Chrysler Financial objective. I have taken a personal interest, as have members of my management team, in Speedweeks 2004."

    Once the 27-city tour is complete, Chrysler Financial will evaluate opportunities for process improvements and enhancements to services offered to dealers.
