LAS VEGAS — Joel Kansanback, president of Automotive Development Group will deliver the Monday evening keynote address at the 2013 Agent Summit, scheduled for March 4–6 at Caesars Palace here.

Kansanback is a 20-year veteran of the industry who worked in executive positions at a leading F&I training and consulting firm and, later, a major auto lender before starting Automotive Development Group in 2002. His keynote address, “Building Your Agency for the Future,” will focus on the business development side of agency operations.

“Today’s agents are facing a fast-changing landscape,” Kansanback said. “What worked in the past won’t work in the future, and agents that can’t manage through the change will be left behind.” Kansanback will speak shortly after the conclusion of a pre-conference Participation and Reinsurance Symposium, and conclude before the evening reception.

David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of F&I and Showroom magazine, said Kansanback’s appearance will provide a fitting opener for the conference. “From the start, we sought to create a show that is by agents, for agents,” Gesualdo said. “Well, Joel is an agent, and a very successful one, and we’re honored he agreed to share the benefit of his experience with our attendees.”
