Proforma Inducts 18 New Members into Its Million Dollar Club
Cleveland-based distributor Proforma announced it has inducted 18 new members into its prestigious Million Dollar Club. This elite group of owners, who achieved more than $1 million in sales in 2013, was inducted into Proforma's esteemed Million Dollar Club during a celebratory trip to the Fairmont Mayakoba in Riviera Maya, Mexico.
"We are extremely proud of our Million and Multi-Million Dollar Club members and enjoyed celebrating with them in Riviera Maya," said Greg Muzzillo, founder of Proforma. "There is no other event in the industry like Proforma's Million Dollar Club trip. This is by far one of the most valuable events for Suppliers and Owners to connect and create true partnerships and identify new opportunities for growth—all while enjoying a culture of success at a first-class resort."
Proforma's annual Million Dollar Club trip is attended by more than 300 of Proforma's Million Dollar performers, the industry's best supplier partners and Proforma's Leadership Team. Owners and suppliers are given the unique opportunity to network and build relationships in a world-class setting. More than $200 million in sales are represented by the owners at this premier industry event.
"Proforma's Million Dollar Club trip is where conversations between distributors and suppliers move past just how to sell products and into how to develop strategic solutions," said Joseph Klinger, account executive at SanMar. "This is one of the most anticipated events of the year for SanMar. Proforma's Million Dollar Club trip gives us access into one of the industry's most prestigious clubs and allows us the opportunity to build valuable relationships with some of the most successful distributors."
Proforma's Million Dollar Club boasts more than 100 members, 40 of which are members of the Multi-Million Dollar Club, with sales ranging from $2 million to more than $25 million. All members were invited on a three-day getaway to luxurious Riviera Maya where they enjoyed networking with supplier partners and celebrating each other's accomplishments while taking advantage of the world-class amenities of the Fairmont Mayakoba.
"Getting that Million Dollar Club jacket put over your shoulders for the first time is an incredible experience," said TC Berry, owner of Proforma TaCaBu in Brookshire, Texas. "When I first joined Proforma my sales were less than $200,000. Now just five years later, with Proforma's marketing programs, back-office support and an incredible vendor network, I've surpassed $1 million in sales. This would not have been possible without Proforma. I dove into the tools and resources and put them to work for my business, and now I'm enjoying a new level of success."
Proforma's Million Dollar Club was launched in 1990 to recognize Proforma Owners who achieved annual sales of greater than $1 million. The Multi-Million Dollar Club was formed thirteen years later as the number of owners who generated $2 million or more in sales in a calendar year continued to increase. Now, Proforma has more than 15 members in its 5 and 10 Million Dollar Clubs.
