19th Annual CEO & CFO Forum
Never before has getting from Point A to Point B been
easier. From built-in GPS systems to smartphones with
navigational tools, it is a breeze to navigate the road
ahead. Or is it?
When we start out on a journey, we know where we
begin and where we hope to end up; it’s the time and
space in between that can throw us a “curve” during our
travels. It is no different when you are navigating your
dealership’s journey down that long road known as The
Future. But knowledge, know-how, skills and provocative
ideas provided by some of the automotive industry’s
brightest and best can make your dealership’s trip a bit
less hazardous.
Join the member firms of AutoTeam America as they
proudly present the 19th Annual CEO/CFO Forum “The
Road Ahead: Satisfying Your Customers & the Factory”
on Friday, February 8, 2013, in conjunction with the NADA
Convention in Orlando, FL. With a high-profile panel,
two brilliant feature speakers, and our moderator, Jay
Ferriero, the event will offer insight and ideas to help you
chart your course as you navigate the twists and turns
associated with the economic highway each automobile
dealer faces in today’s static environment.
