Proforma CEO, Vera Muzzillo, Named Tampa Bay Technology Business Woman of the Year

Proforma, the $600 million technology and business success leader, celebrates the recognition of its CEO, Vera Muzzillo, as the Tampa Bay Technology Business Woman of the Year by Tampa Bay Business & Wealth Magazine (TBBW). TBBW is the leading provider and trusted resource for business leaders affecting change in the Tampa Bay region, the nation’s number-one emerging tech market as recently named by Forbes Magazine.

“I am honored to receive this prestigious award on behalf of the entire Proforma family” stated Vera Muzzillo, CEO of Proforma. “We are beyond thrilled to be recognized for our more than $25 million investment in the best business management platform in the industry and our ongoing commitment to empowering the success of our distributors through the best technological resources and tools available.”

Since assuming the role of CEO in 2001, Muzzillo has been a driving force behind the remarkable growth and triumph of Proforma. In 2015, Muzzillo spearheaded the technology initiative that propelled the company to the forefront of the print and promotional products industry; a visionary undertaking that not only cemented Proforma’s reputation as a leader, but also established Muzzillo as a catalyst in delivering innovative technology solutions to businesses around the globe.

“It is a true privilege to work with a business leader who is so fluent in technology,” added Brian Carothers, Proforma CTO and the 2023 PromoStandards Distributor Person of the Year Award Winner, “I am extraordinarily pleased to celebrate her much deserved recognition within Tampa Bay and throughout the industry.”

The Tampa Bay Business Women Awards go beyond merely acknowledging female leaders; they celebrate their immense contributions to their respective industries and the Tampa Bay community. Muzzillo’s recognition reflects her exceptional leadership skills, business acumen, and commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of those around her.

“Over the past few years, my distributorship has grown from $600,000 to nearly $3 million dollars in annual sales,” noted Deborah Lanigan, a member of Proforma’s Multi-Million Dollar Club. “I credit Proforma’s technology in large part for that extraordinary growth. Thank you and congratulations, Vera!”
