LGM at Canada’s Used Car Week event 2023

June 19, 2023

LGM was proud to be present at Canada’s Used Car Week from June 12-14, 2023, in Toronto.

Canada’s Used Car Week, an amalgamation of the Auto Remarketing Canada Conference and the Women & Automotive Conference, brings together leaders from different facets of the automotive industry to share powerful insights and build relationships.

LGM speakers

LGM proudly sent thought leaders, Jake Stacey, Executive Vice President, Sales and Training, and Clare Lowe, Vice President, Sales, to the conference to speak on some important topics.

Post-Pandemic Used Vehicle Gap: What’s Next?  

In the conference’s keynote address, Stacey explored the post-pandemic used car vehicle shortage that has arisen because of the inventory shortages that OEMs have experienced over the last couple years. Her powerful presentation sparked insightful discussion on what these impacts mean for dealers, consumers, and ancillary products, like finance and insurance (F&I).

Transcending Multigenerational Barriers 

In a Women & Automotive panel, Lowe was joined by Josie Patella, Senior Partner at Waterstone Human Capital and Tara Willis, Senior Manager of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion and Philanthropy at Nissan. The group of female leaders came together for a meaningful discussion on ageism and actions we can all take to be a change maker for age inclusion by sharing their own learnings and experiences on the topic.

The Future of F&I 

Jake’s guests included Clare Lowe from LGM, Shannon Lucia Hoonaard, Finance & Insurance Manager at Budd’s BMW and Stephanie Smith, Central District Sales Manager at Kia. Together, they explored predictions for the road ahead of F&I, how dealers can maximize future F&I opportunities and what providers can do drive sustainable revenue for dealers on the new and pre-owned sides of the business. Their discussion shed light on predictions of what lies ahead for the industry.
