CLEVELAND, OHIO (January 13, 2020) – On Sunday evening, Co-Founder of Apple Steve Wozniak joined Proforma at The PPAI Expo in a celebration of technology innovation. A record-breaking number of Proforma Owners, Supplier Partners and special guests in the industry attended this private event. Wozniak was the 2020 featured speaker to launch Proforma’s Annual Kick-Off Meeting. Proforma is celebrating the success that its $15 million business management technology platform, ProVision, is creating for its affiliate members. Affiliate members on ProVision have seen an average 20% increase in sales and a 17% increase in gross profits since switching to the proprietary system.
“After hearing the success of Proforma’s members on ProVision, it’s clear that Proforma is unlocking doors to the future of their industry. I have always said that ‘wherever smart people work, doors are unlocked’ and clearly Proforma has an abundance of smart people behind their technology. It was a thrill to be a part of this special celebration.”
“The WOZ” captivated the audience as he shared personal anecdotes, practical jokes and technological insight with Chief Technology Officer Brian Carothers. Wozniak’s passion for promotional products was recognized by the presentation of an honorary Master of Advertising Specialist (MAS) by PPAI President and CEO Paul Bellantone.
“Having the opportunity to interview one of the world’s most influential minds is a testament to Proforma’s pursuit of technology innovation in the print and promotional products industry,” said Chief Technology Officer Brain Carothers.
