We have more than 750 Proforma Member Owners around the world and the better we can serve their needs, the better they can serve their clients.

”Vera Muzzillo joined Proforma in 2001 as the company’s Chief Executive Officer to help develop strategic business opportunities and establish strong relationships with the company’s Member Owners. Her focus is on providing comprehensive oversight to the banking, cash management, credit, financial, operations and technology aspects of the company. Company sales grew from $85 million in 2001 to more than $500 million in 2014, because of the proven strategies she implemented to help men and women become more successful at Proforma.

Her passion for helping those around, whether it is one of our Owners or a member of our Support Team, is contagious and has contributed to the growth and success of our team.

” Muzzillo is currently spearheading a new initiative to improve Proforma’s operating system. She is dedicated to ensuring Proforma Owners have the most efficient, reliable and intuitive technology platform available to enable them to more efficiently run their businesses and serve their clients.
