Albuquerque, NM (May 3, 2016) – SouthwestRe has announced that it will be a Lead Sponsor and Reinsurance Symposium Lead Sponsor for the 2016 Agent Summit, held on May 9-11 at the Venetian Palazzo Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. In addition, SouthwestRe’s CEO and Chairman of the Board, Jim Smith, will be the opening keynote speaker during the pre-conference Reinsurance Symposium on May 9.

The Agent Summit is an annual event that serves to educate automotive general agents on the latest training techniques and trends to help them better serve their dealer clients. During this year’s Summit, SouthwestRe will be prepared to meet with agents and other clients in Booth #107.

“We are all looking forward to hearing Jim Smith’s address during the pre-conference Reinsurance Symposium,” said Carmen Torres, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for SouthwestRe. “Jim’s keynote address will be entitled “The Landscape of Reinsurance,” and promises to take a look back on the history of reinsurance, talk about present opportunities, and focus on its bright future.”

“We are more than a little proud that Jim has been asked to speak during the Reinsurance Symposium,” Torres said. “The fact that Jim has been selected for this prestigious honor is clearly in recognition of his 30-plus year history as a reinsurance luminary in our Industry. We urge all of our agent-partners to attend Jim’s keynote address. It is bound to be both extremely interesting, and chock full of information agents can use to dramatically enhance their understanding of reinsurance. It has been our experience that the most successful agents are those who offer reinsurance solutions to their dealer clients.”

According to Scott Craigmile, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for SouthwestRe, the Company expects a large number of new and current agents to visit its booth this year.

“2015 was a record-setting year for us in VSC sales,” said Craigmile. “We believe that success is proof positive that our agents understand and appreciate the many outstanding benefits of partnering with SouthwestRe. Clearly, we are the Administrator of choice for all agents looking to obtain the maximum return for their efforts. We encourage all agents wishing to expand their business and maximize their commissions to meet with us during Agent Summit to find out how SouthwestRe can deliver more profit, more service and more solutions than the competition.”
