Greg and Vera Muzzillo have lead Proforma to nearly 10% sales growth in 2012, compared to 2011. October of 2012 boasted record breaking profits with Proforma Member Owners reporting more than $35 million in sales. This is the highest recorded sales month in Proforma Network history.
“Inclusion on Counselor’s Power 50 list is an honor for Vera and me,” said Greg Muzzillo, Founder of Proforma. “But this recognition isn’t just about where Vera and I rank in the industry. It represents Proforma’s position as a $400 million industry leader. The hard work our Owners, Supplier Partners and Support Center Team Members put into this organization is the reason Proforma continues to grow and be successful.”
Proforma has recently completed a $5 million investment in an enterprise solutions technology platform, designed to significantly increase Proforma Franchise Owners’ North American and Global enterprise client base. October also marks the one year anniversary of Proforma’s ProVantage Business Development System, created to help Proforma Member Owners selling under $400,000/year increase their sales. Participants in the program have experienced 24% growth over last year. These tools are put in place to help Owners reach their goals and make their dreams come true.
