This past month, Henry Szymanski from our Auto Dealer Advisory Group represented Schneider Downs as a Bronze Sponsor of the 2013 Pennsylvania Automotive Association (“PAA”)Fall Conference held in Miami’s art deco South Beach.
This year’s conference was hosted by the 2013 PAA Chairman and Western Pennsylvania native, Rob Cochran. As usual, the conference offered great opportunities for dealer and associate members from across the Commonwealth to network, socialize and keep current on issues facing the automotive industry in Pennsylvania.
Dynamic and informative presentations were delivered by keynote speakers Ken Czubay of Ford Motor Company and Jose Muñoz of Nissan. Motivation, education and technology were also in the forefront with presentations from Arnold Sanow on customer and workplace relationships, Peter Leto from Google on capturing today’s auto shopper, Dale Pollak on used vehicle metrics, and Dennis Snow on world-class customer service as learned from the Walt Disney World experience. And not to be outdone, the PAA Panel of Mark Stine, Chad Marsar and Don Busey provided their usual, invaluable Pennsylvania legal updates.
As a recurring Fall Conference sponsor, Schneider Downs recognizes the importance of the PAA’s on-going regulatory influence, dealer education and the value and importance of its membership events. Of course, a little sun and sand always enhances the experience and outlook for us Pennsylvania natives!
