Nashville, TN – September 30, 2014 – Primeritus Financial Services, Inc. hosted their 2nd Agent Partner Event in Nashville, TN on September 11th and 12th and had a record turnout.
Primeritus’ first Event in 2013 hosted over 100 attendees and this year’s Event doubled that number. The Event took place in Nashville over a two-day span from September 11th through the 12th. Primeritus CEO Chuck Tapp stated, “We were very excited to have such a large turnout this year. By doubling last year’s attendance, it gave us the opportunity to show even more of our agent partners how much we truly appreciate their efforts and hard work. It was fun to entertain all the attendees during the two-day Event and thank them for their partnership. We’re already looking forward to next year’s Event!”
Primeritus had several functions over the two-day span which included tours of their new facility, a welcome reception for their agent partners and key Primeritus associates, presentations at the Gaylord Opryland Resort, chartered shuttle buses for attendees, and a grand finale in downtown Nashville. In addition to all of the functions listed, Primeritus had several sponsors in attendance to provide their agent partners more avenues to potentially increase their profitability and performance. Sponsors for the Event included MBSi, WCI Insurance Services (formerly the Walt Cagley Insurance Agency), MVTRAC, Austin Insurance and KeyNET along with others. Primeritus General Manager and Vice President Justin Conners advised, “Our agent partners play a vital role in our success. As good partners, we feel we can hopefully return that favor by having exhibitors at our Event to provide more resources to help the agents be more successful. It’s the right thing to do and we’re glad to be able to do it. We’re always eager to help all of our partners succeed.”
The Event was coordinated by Keith Baggett, Primeritus Vice President of Industry Relations. Per Baggett, “We feel this Event was a huge success for us and our agent partners. I’m thankful that we had this opportunity to sit down with over 200 attendees and thank them for being good partners to us and our industry as a whole. I’m especially pleased to see how our Event grew compared to last year, which I think mirrors our success here. We too strive to grow and become better year over year and we can’t do it without the support of all of our partners.”
Per Greg Ward and Richard Reyes of MBSi, “The need for industry leaders to collaborate and foster the sharing of best practices has never been greater. In order to provide solutions for financial companies and also offer a competitive edge for the service provider requires forward thinking. MBSi Corp. would like to thank Primeritus for providing a platform for us to share our vision with their partners. We were glad to speak to the benefits of both of our newest products, Repo Ninja™ and Compliance Made Easy™. We really enjoyed the Event and the opportunities it provided us and the industry as a whole.”
Bob Langner and Shane Foster with WCI Insurance Services added, “It’s important for agents to have insurance options and we hope our attending the Event gave agents that and more. We would like to thank Keith Baggett and the entire Primeritus team for including us as an Event partner. They really went to great lengths to put together such a beneficial event for all of their partners and our industry.”
Rob Austin with Austin Insurance mentioned, “Several of our customers were in attendance at the Event. With Nashville being so close to our home office, it was a real pleasure to be able to drive down for the Event and reconnect with them while meeting potentially new customers. We appreciated the opportunity to be part of the Event and we look forward to providing a valuable service when it comes to meeting the repossessors’ insurance needs!”
Joe Villano with KeyNet said, “Due to prior commitments, we were unable to attend but we were happy to be one of the sponsors for the Event. Every agent out there has had to make a key for a vehicle at some point in time and we’re the solution for all of their locksmithing needs. We were pleased to have fielded so many calls not only during the Event but afterwards as well. We welcome being a partner to Primeritus as well as the repo industry!”
According to Luke Smith with MVTRAC, “As a concierge to Forwarders, MVTRAC was able to demonstrate our appreciation by really listening to the agents to get a better understanding of their needs. We were able to have some valuable discussions on how our patented ALPR system called The Intelligent Data Network™ truly maximizes the potential for agent success through instantaneous technology integrations.” Smith further added, “We truly appreciate Primeritus for hosting and inviting MVTRAC to the event and look forward to returning in the future. The value behind an event of this magnitude with over 200 agents was immediately evident through the development of stronger relationships, and will continue to grow in value in the coming months.”
To show their appreciation to all of the Event sponsors, Primeritus will be adding the sponsors’ links to their website, www.primeritus.com, in the near future.
