CLEVELAND—February 2, 2015—Proforma is proud to announce Fred and Suzette Albrecht, co-owners of Proforma Albrecht & Co. in Milford, OH, as the first members of its 25 Million Dollar Club. With more than 100 Owners and sales representatives in Proforma’s Million and Multi-Million Dollar Clubs, the Albrechts are the first in Proforma history to achieve the $25 million milestone, with their total sales reaching $26.9 million in 2014.
“We are honored to welcome Fred and Suzette Albrecht as the first members of our 25 Million Dollar Club,” commented Greg Muzzillo, founder of Proforma. “Fred and Suzette demonstrate their commitment to their team and their business day-in and day-out through their exceptional leadership and by actively engaging in Proforma’s resources to build their business. We are thrilled to see all our Owners and their sales representatives continue to achieve unprecedented success as Proforma’s experiences another record-breaking sales year.”
Proforma Albrecht & Co. also became the first to post $3 million in sales in a single month for Proforma in June 2014. Fred and Suzette Albrecht surpassed $2 million in monthly sales eight times in the past year. The Albrechts have built a team of more than 85 sales representatives across 27 states and 28 employees in their Cincinnati office. Six Proforma Albrecht & Co. sales representatives have individually surpassed $1 million in sales this year.
“Suzie and I are proud to accomplish this $25 million milestone,” relayed Fred Albrecht. “While it is an honor to be recognized, we believe it is truly a tribute to our employees, sales executives and every owner in the Proforma Network. It represents what you can achieve when you have partners like Greg, Vera and all the people who work so hard at Proforma’s support center. We not only share a common brand, purchasing power and world-class marketing, we also share the same vision, dream and drive to succeed.”
“I am so proud of the success of every individual sales professional on our team,” Suzette Albrecht remarked. “Together with our employees in Cincinnati, they have made it possible for Fred and me to achieve our dream of building a business where people are truly valued every day, recognized for their achievements and accomplish their dreams and goals. When I look back after 15 years, it amazes me that we have grown our business from our kitchen table to one of the largest woman-owned businesses in Cincinnati and now members of Proforma’s prestigious 25 Million Dollar Club. We are very proud for our entire team to be recognized by our Proforma Family and look forward to reaching our next goal of $50 million.”
All of Proforma’s Million and Multi-Million Dollar Club Members are invited on a luxurious trip each year to celebrate their success. This year’s Million Dollar Club celebration will take place March 12-15 at the award-winning Terranea resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA. Beginning this year, Proforma’s sales representatives who achieve $1 million in sales are eligible to attend the trip to be recognized for their accomplishments.
