The Automotive Advertising Experts show is hosted on Blog Talk Radio and featured on AdAgencyOnline.Net – an auto industry networking resource portal. Philip Zelinger, the President of Ad Agency Online and host of the show, will interview Michael Wynns, the President of Automotive Resource Partner, (ARP) on Fri., March 28th, 2014, at 12 N. EST.
The pair of auto industry insiders will discuss the unique networking partnership and leveraged resources offered by ARP. They will also share some insider information regarding the upcoming Automotive Leadership Roundtable & Awards, (ALR), scheduled at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach on April 6th & 7th, 2014.
Michael is an author, entrepreneur and digital marketing expert who has spear-headed the technology platforms used by numerous industry heavy weights – including Vehix.com, Comcast.net and Dominion Dealer Services. He is currently the President of Automotive Resource Partners – a private equity company that develops technology solutions exclusively for the automotive industry.
The Automotive Leadership Roundtable & Awards™ (ALR) has been described as “the most impactful 24-hours in the automotive industry” and for good reason. This is where top thought leaders come to share the results of their research. This is where top dealers come to share their best practices. And, this is where industry insiders come to announce the game-changing ideas that the rest of the world will find out about long after innovators have put them into practice. However, the most extraordinary aspect of ALR is the opportunity it provides to have one-on-one interactions with the country’s best and brightest automotive minds and discuss real world opportunities with those who are at the very top of their game.
Michael confirmed that they have an exciting agenda planned. It begins with a high-impact roundtable led by several of the country’s top dealers and leading business minds and continues with a five-star dinner that will celebrate the accomplishments of this year’s top-selling dealers and feature a private performance by multi-Grammy winning artist Jon Secada. Finally, the evening will conclude with a VIP cocktail party that will allow attendees to interact with this year’s presenters and reflect on the day’s events.
Speakers include: Forrest McConnell, NADA – Mark Burnett – Jack Harbaugh – Peter Leto, Google – Kass Dawson, Facebook – Ron Collier – Jim Dunn #1 Lexus –Stewart Esterby/Ken Potter (TrueCar) – Johnathan Bernard Univision – John Malishenko, COO Germain Auto – Richard Bustillo, GM, Rick Case Honda –Brian Benstock, Paragon Honda – Andy Lipset, Pandora – Susan Scarola, DCH Auto – Steve Greenfield, AutoTrader – Ben Simon, Wal-mart
