Last weekend, Team Partners and top leaders traveled from all over the world to Sarasota, Florida, to join the ribbon cutting ceremony to inaugurate PM-International’s new Headquarters Americas. This historical moment was followed by PM’s Kick-Off USA on May 5. The whole weekend was the perfect occasion to reunite with the PM family, learn all about the latest business news and product novelties, and share big emotions.
Named “Florida’s Best Kept Secret” by Vogue Magazine, sunny Sarasota is located south of Tampa on Florida’s Gulf Coast. Back in the days, it was the winter home of the famous Ringling Brothers Circus. Today, it hosts a number of cultural institutions, notably the Ringling Museum of Art. It’s also the gateway to some of the country’s finest beaches with miles of white sand and shallow waters, such as Lido Beach and Siesta Key Beach.
It’s safe to say our colleagues’ have plenty of fun options to spend their time after work. But of course, that’s not the main reason why the choice fell on Sarasota. PM-International is convinced of the locational advantages which the city has to offer:
“As a direct sales company, people are the most important resource of our business. Sarasota is ranked among the fastest-growing cities of the US, and our decision was supported by the access to highly-skilled talents and the vibrant business community that we see here. I have a strong personal connection to the Sarasota region and am confident that PM-International will thrive here,” says CEO and Founder Rolf Sorg.
A New Hub for the American Markets
The new Headquarters Americas is responsible for the administration and supply chain management for North, South, and Central America. PM-International invested in a 13,000 square foot premises, which will house the company’s offices, meeting facilities, and a new, vertically integrated packaging operation.
Rolf Sorg is convinced that the new set-up will pave the way for further growth:
“PM-International is now well-positioned to increase its footprint, not only in the United States and Canada, but all of the Americas. We have invested heavily in this region, with the new Headquarters Americas being the cornerstone for supporting PM-International’s rapid growth in the American markets.”
Joined Forces for Great Results
With a 2018 sales increase of 110 % compared to the previous year, PM is clearly on the rise in the Americas. In 2018, PM-International ranked 24 in the “Direct Selling News Global 100” with a group-wide annual turnover amounting to 833 million US dollars. Apart from the new Headquarters Americas, PM-International runs subsidiaries in the US, Chile, and Mexico, and is in the process of opening branches in Brazil and Canada.
One thing is for sure: The PM leaders in the Americas know that team work makes the dream work. With the new set-up, they are ready to turn the American markets upside down and show the world what it means to “Break your Limits”!
