Proforma Achieves Record $40 Million Sales Month
Cleveland-based distributor Proforma announced that October was a record-breaking $40 million sales month.
The highest sales month in company history netted $4 million more in sales over October of last year. The company’s overall sales are up 13 percent compared to 2013.
“Our focus is on helping our owners earn new business through winning enterprise level accounts, adding experienced sales representatives to their teams and pursuing acquisitions,” said Greg Muzzillo, founder of Proforma. “We are committed to helping every member of the Proforma family achieve their dreams by putting them in the best situation to win new opportunities. Right now we have more than $900 million in opportunities in our active pipeline that we are working with our owners and sales reps to close.”
Proforma’s mergers and acquisitions team has played a significant role in propelling the company’s sales this year by helping owners close more than $12 million in acquisitions. The global major accounts team also has closed 14 enterprise level accounts worth more than $1 million each, involving eCommerce, comprehensive print and promotional programs, multimedia marketing solutions and more, and eight Proforma owners have hired sales representatives who brought books of business worth more than $1 million each to Proforma.
“In just two years we’ve been able to nearly double our sales by embracing all the resources available to us through Proforma,” said Mike Durkee, co-owner of Proforma Durkee in Huntersville, N.C. and one of the newest members of Proforma’s Million Dollar Club. “For the first time we are able to position ourselves as truly one source with infinite resources for our clients. We are taking on projects involving websites, videos, mobile apps, complex packaging and more that we wouldn’t have touched in the past without Proforma. Now we have the confidence and the resources to win major accounts.”
