LAS VEGAS — Attorney and compliance expert Michael Maledon will serve as moderator for a panel discussion devoted to rules and regulations at the upcoming Compliance Summit, organizers announced Tuesday. The two-day conference will begin on Monday, Aug. 29, at Paris Las Vegas as part of the annual Industry Summit.
Maledon’s panel will include Bob Balak, director of sales for national accounts for Compli, Darin Ramos, vice president of business development for Alpha Warranty Corp., and Steve Rounneau, vice president of compliance for EFG Companies.
“With its maze of laws and regulations, retail automotive has become as complicated as ever,” Maledon said. “Compliance Summit serves as an opportunity to move beyond the buzzwords to discuss practical, workable solutions. Our goal will be to identify and focus on best practices that can be successfully implemented into a dealer’s workflow.”
The panel, “Knowledge Is Power,” will begin at 11:25 a.m. on Monday, immediately following “The Buck Stops Here: Dealers, Compliance and Enforcement,” a featured presentation by attorney and former regulator Terry O’Loughlin.
“Following Terry is no small task, but I am confident Michael and his panelists can handle it,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Auto Dealer Today and F&I and Showroom. “They are experts in their field, they are the ideal translators for lawmakers, and they will have our undivided attention.”
Compliance Summit attendees are also invited to attend any Industry Summit session and sit for the Certified Automotive Compliance Specialist exam, both for no additional charge.
