Further acquisitions may be announced in the coming months. "In line with our business strategy, we're looking to be aggressive," says Charles Janosick, president of Proforma Executive Business Services. "Barry has a very nice client base with great potential for growth."Barry Roberts, a 30-year industry veteran, will continue selling to clients with Proforma Executive Business Services.

According to Janosick, the acquisition will allow his company to expand into new markets and target the $1 million sales mark in 2009. Proforma Executive Business Services slightly increased its revenue in 2008 after attaining 40% growth in 2007. Janosick says his company's 2009 numbers are ahead of last year's pace.

Making You Money: What ASI is all about.

Items like mugs, pens and t-shirts are memorable and provide a better cost per impression for advertisers than almost every major marketing effort like prime time TV, magazines and radio.

With so many businesses buying ad specialties there is a huge opportunity for professionals looking to make great money running a promotional products distributorship. It’s easy and inexpensive to get started and you can work from home.
