LAS VEGAS — The organizers of the first annual Agent Summit have announced that Randy Crisorio, president of Clearwater, Fla.-based United Development Systems Inc. (UDS), will deliver the event’s keynote address.

“I am thrilled to have an opportunity to share 30-plus years of experience with the attendees of the inaugural Agent Summit,” Crisorio said Thursday. “They can expect an interactive session loaded with ideas that will expand the level at which they compete.”

Crisorio, who also will serve on the Agent Summit advisory board, will present “The Value of Agents and Agencies” on Day 2 of the event.
