Three Proforma Members Named to "Fastest-Growing Distributors" List by Counselor Magazine

Proforma is excited to announce three of its members were named to Counselormagazine's list of the 10 Fastest-Growing Distributors. Proforma was the only distributor organization to have more than one business represented on the list, which identifies the largest growers in the print and promotional products industry by sales increases between 2012 and 2014.

"I'm very proud that three Proforma Members are among the fastest growing distributors in the industry," said Greg Muzzillo, Founder of Proforma. "Our Owners motivation is what sets them on the path to success, and it's our mission to support them every step of the way as they achieve their dreams. I'm thrilled that our Owners are experiencing fast, significant growth with the business development programs we have in place."

Proforma Scotto Promotion, owned by Kristen Scotto in West Palm Beach, FL earned the #2 spot on the list with 441% growth. Proforma Stand Out Branding, owned by Darren Golden in Powhatan, VA, had 288% growth and was named the #5 fastest growing distributor. Proforma Durkee, owned by Mike and Melinda Durkee in Huntersville, NC, took the #8 spot on the list with 152% growth.

"Since I joined Proforma in 2011, I have increased my sales by more than $1.4 million," said Scotto. "I could not have grown at such a significant pace without the resources Proforma provides for marketing, back office support and more. With the power of Proforma behind me, I've truly become a full solutions provider for my clients, which has taken my business to a completely new level."

Each of the Owners that made this list are members of Proforma's prestigious Million Dollar Club, with sales ranging from $1.2 million to $1.7 million in 2014. Proforma also had 15 of its members qualify for the 2015 Inc. 5000 list of the Fastest Growing Private Companies in America.

"I have tripled my sales over the past three years and I'm confident Proforma has been a large contributor to that success," said Golden. "Being a part of Proforma gives me access to the tools and programs I need, while providing an opportunity to be part of a larger network that motivates and inspires each other. With 750 Owners rooting for my success and 150 Support Team Members working to help my business grow, it makes it much easier to increase my sales."

In 2014, Proforma was ranked as the #2 Top Distributor by Counselor, #1 Top Distributor in Promo Marketing magazine, #2 Top Distributor by Print + Promo and #2 Top Distributor by Print Solutions. Proforma was also the recipient of three 2015 American Inhouse Design Awards from Graphic Design USA for the design concepts behind its marketing programs.

Proforma members enjoy a full suite of support including access to award winning marketing campaigns, a newly enhanced technology platform, financial backing, free credit insurance, the buying clout that lowers costs 5% - 15% with a proven vendor network and more.
