LAS VEGAS — US Warranty Corp.’s Mark Macek will serve as the first of four speakers at the Participation & Reinsurance Symposium at Agent Summit 2013, according to organizers.

Macek said dealer-owned warranty companies (DOWCs) are his company’s specialty, but his presentation will include a primer on retros and dealer obligors as well. “My goal is to help provide agents with a look at what’s out there and help them understand what works best for their dealerships,” he said.

US Warranty Corp. was founded by Macek’s father-in-law in 1975, making it the oldest licensed vehicle service contract provider in the state of Florida. Macek joined the company in 1983 and has served as its president for the past seven years.

“Now is the perfect time for this symposium,” Macek said. “There are tax changes coming, and dealers need to make as much profit as possible, and these programs provide that.”

The Participation & Reinsurance Symposium will feature four segments and will be moderated by James Ganther of Mosaic Interactive LLC. The event will commence at 1 p.m. on Monday, March 4, and conclude before the opening-night keynote address and reception for Agent Summit 2013, which runs through March 6.
