Global Graphics Network Expanding With 50 Development Executives
Global Graphics Network (GGN), a new Tampa, Florida-based business accelerator for print shop owners, plans to add 50 development executives throughout North America over the next two years.
“Thousands of print shop owners throughout North America need a solid path to grow their sales, increase their profits and have more fun again in the printing business,” said Greg Muzzillo, founder of GGN. “Our development model is similar to the proven development agent program used by Subway Restaurants to generate their explosive growth.”
GGN is a sister network to Proforma, the $500 million leading network of print and promotional product distributors. Proforma offers its members more than $4 million per year in sales and marketing programs, buying advantages with their supplier network and world-class back-office support. GGN will be offering these advantages to its print shop members.
“Print shop owners also need local business development support to grow their sales,” said Muzzillo. “Most print shop owners are more comfortable running a print shop than running a sales department. The key role for the GGN development advisors will be helping build successful sales teams for GGN members.”
GGN and its regional development advisors (RDAs) will focus on three key areas of support for its members. First, the RDAs will help GGN members position their businesses as total solutions providers and immediately increase sales to current customers. Second, the RDAs will help recruit proven sales leaders with existing business to create instant sales growth and leadership for continued momentum. Third, the RDAs will assist GGN members acquire area printers.
GGN RDAs will be able to leverage Proforma’s extensive resources and support programs. Proforma has both a proven sales recruiting team and an acquisitions department to help both Proforma and GGN members every step of the way.
“This is a multi-billion dollar opportunity for us,” said Muzzillo. “As the Subway development agents helped explode Subway’s growth, many of them became multi-millionaires. We look forward to a similar explosion of growth and wealth-building for our RDAs and our GGN members.”
GGN reports that it already is in serious discussions with more than 15 qualified prospects for its RDAs program. According to GGN, most of the best prospects are seasoned sales veterans from paper merchants or print consumables companies.
