The G-Man Cometh: Homeland Security and Guild 21 on counterfeit parts

Toronto, Ontario — Let the spy games begin! Tomorrow, Guild 21 will host a webinar on identifying counterfeit auto parts⁠—with a keynote speech to be delivered by a senior Homeland Security agent.

To be held online on Thursday, June 11 at 2 p.m. EST (11 a.m. Pacific), Don’t Gamble with Counterfeit Parts will feature a keynote presentation from special agent Abe Jardines, who serves as the national program manager for Homeland Security’s National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center. In his presentation, Abe Jardines, will discuss his work investigating the proliferation of illegal counterfeit auto parts.

It isn’t just the G-men who are concerned about counterfeit auto parts making their way into vehicles through often unwitting auto repair businesses. Company representatives from major OEMs will also participate in the online event.

The webinar will feature presentations from Andy Forsythe, who oversees brand protection and dealer parts loyalty at the Nissan Group of North America, John Lancaster, a national wholesale parts manager for Subaru of America, and Teena Bohi, a senior brand protection analyst for Toyota Motors of North America.

Sponsored by Verifacts, Guild 21 conference calls are open to all members of the collision repair industry and the wider automotive claims economy.
