“With Proforma, I’ve nearly tripled my business over the past three years, driving my sales beyond $1 million,” said Chas Shramek, first-time Million Dollar Club member and owner of Proforma Connected, Avon, Ohio. “Proforma’s supplier partnerships and buying power has put me in the position to acquire enterprise-level accounts, which have proven to be highly profitable. This event is the perfect celebration of achieving this monumental milestone in my business.”
Every year, Profoma owners achieving at least $1 million in sales are invited on a three-day getaway to a world class resort to enjoy networking with supplier partners and celebrating each other’s accomplishments. The next Million Dollar Club trip will be held at the five-star Fairmont Mayakoba resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico on March 15 to 18, 2018.
