CLEVELAND (May 6, 2010) – On the heels of a challenging economy, Proforma is excited to announce the company has been ranked the #2 Distributor by the Advertising Specialty Institute’s Counselor magazine.
Named as a top 10 distributor since 2001, Proforma continues to shine as a dominant force in the industry with a proven business model for its distributor members. Setting a record for growth in 2009 by bringing on 150 new Proforma Owners, Founder, Greg Muzzillo is looking forward to 2010’s sales figures.
“I am pleased with our #2 ranking and proud of our Owners for demonstrating resolve during a tough year. This year has already started off on the right foot, as we have increased our sales substantially over 2009,” said Muzzillo.
The annual listing by Counselor magazine is based on a comparison of 2008 and 2009 sales figures and highlights the Top 40 Distributors in the industry. With more than 720 offices across North America and $312 million in total annual revenue last year, Proforma achieved the status as the industry’s #2 distributor.
In addition to the company being named among the best distributors by Counselor magazine, Muzzillo and his wife, Vera, CEO of Proforma have been named Counselor’s ‘Person of the Year.’ Proforma has also been awarded two InHouse Design Awards from Graphic Design USA and a PEAK Award of Excellence by Print Solutions magazine.
