At the upcoming Auto Finance Summit, Robert Tennant, chief legal officer at Veros Credit, will offer insights into the latest on regulations and enforcement during a presentation on Tuesday, Oct. 29 at the Bellagio Las Vegas.
Tennant will speak about current trends in Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) litigation, how companies should prepare for ramped up activity and scrutiny from state regulators, and the critical issues surrounding consumers who flip-flop on consent.
Tennant began his role as in-house counsel for Veros Credit’s predecessor, Credit One Corporation, building its legal department from scratch. He helped form Veros Credit in 2010, which began as a regional company focusing on the Southern California market and emerged as a national competitor, operating in 18 states. He was promoted to vice president and general counsel of Veros Credit, and built a legal team of associate attorneys, specialists and staff, handling hundreds of litigation files, transactions, and all other legal issues.
Tennant also created and oversees Veros Credit’s compliance department to ensure that the company successfully navigates the complex regulatory and legal issues in the consumer finance industry.
Other sessions on the agenda include Breaking the Mold: Using Fintechs to Step Out of Traditional Lending; Tailoring Servicing Techniques to Surpass Customer Expectations; and The Ever-Changing Landscape of Fraud.
