Executives from Bank of America, Chase Auto and Lendbuzz are set to take the stage on Friday, May 12, at 11:15 a.m. CT at the Auto Finance Summit East in Nashville, Tenn., to discuss sales strategies amid higher interest rates and lower volume.
Most automakers have seen increased sales activity in the first quarter as inventory slowly improves, but high average transaction prices and rising interest rates are limiting potential growth, making it more important for auto lenders to streamline sales strategies.
Auto Finance Summit East takes place May 10-12 at the JW Marriott Nashville and will provide opportunities to gain industry knowledge and network with industry leaders.
The panel on auto finance strategies features Chase Auto National Retail Sales Director Amy Brooks, Bank of America Head of Consumer Vehicle Lending Tim Owens and Lendbuzz co-founder and chief executive Amitay Kalmar. Bringing a combined six decades of experience in financial services, the executives will discuss ways to train and inspire sales teams for greater volume, present strategies for scaling sales for high performance without compromising efficiency, and share war stories from the sales frontlines.
AFS East features three days of networking, educational sessions and tech demos, including a panel on EV financing trends, a fireside chat with Chase Auto Chief Executive Peter Muriungi, and the inaugural Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Luncheon, headlined by Santander U.S. Chief Diversity Officer and Executive Vice President Virnitia Dixon.
Auto Finance Summit East, Auto Finance News’ new spring event, is scheduled for May 10-12 at the JW Marriott Nashville featuring a fireside chat with Peter Muriungi, CEO of Chase Auto. Visit autofinance.live.
