Fourth Independent Dealer Executive Academy Receives Elite Reviews21 Feb, 2013
Wesley Chapel, FL, February 13, 2013 - The Partners of the Pros Elite Group in conjunction with Mitch Morgan of Growth Achievement Partners, and Todd Johnson, executed their fourth Independent Dealer Executive Academy training program the week of February 4th. This Office Imaging Dealer executive training program launched in 2012 has been attended by over 100 Dealer Principals, V.P.s of Sales, C.F.O.s and General Managers. The Independent Dealer Executive Academy (IDEA) is an intense, three day training course addressing the key actions and best practices to maximize a dealership's potential.
The IDEA course encompasses all of the critical aspects of successfully operating an independent dealership in the Office Products Industry. Focusing on specific execution actions and best practices, the curriculum includes Finance, Sales, and Service, as well as Benchmarking, Managed Print Services, Business Process Optimization and Managed Network Services. "This is not your average training program", said Steve Rolla, Pros Elite Group Senior partner and instructor. "The course consists of a significant amount of material that is packed into 3 days. The participants are pleased with the vast amount of the content."
John Heiser, who attended the most recent seminar said," The Sales Management Process taught at the Independent Dealer Executive Academy is worth the price of admission to this outstanding Executive training program. This is the perfect venue to get an entire Management team on the same page in Sales, Service and Administration and performing at an Elite level. This three day conference was the equivalent of an MBA class specifically designed for the Office Imaging Dealer. I would encourage every dealer, regardless of their current processes, profits or program to attend".
"The opportunity we see," said Jerry Newberry, Pros Elite Group principal and instructor, "is for the independent dealer principals to share in the wealth of knowledge, training and experience that we have as a group of instructors." The Pros Elite Group partners Steve, Jeff and Jerry have extensive backgrounds in the industry, including senior executive rolls at independent dealerships, Ikon, and most recently Global Imaging. Pros Elite Group also has a fast growing base of consulting clients across the US and internationally. Mitch Morgan and Growth Achievement Partners also have an established leadership position in the industry through their consulting clients, as well as their affiliations with BTA and several Industry dealer groups. Todd Johnson, rounds out the team with his extensive expertise in finance and operations gained during his tenure as the V.P. of acquisitions at Global Imaging.
Ben Russert, the Principal of Pro Source in Cincinnati , attended the February session with members of his Executive team. Russert said, "Every Dealer Principal I know would benefit from the Independent Dealer Academy (IDEA). I attended the training with members of my Management team and came away with a tremendous amount of Sales, Service and Administrative management expertise we can apply immediately to improve Pro Source."
"The structure of this school is loosely based on our experience as creators and instructors of the Global Leadership Institute." said Todd Johnson. "It was an intense program we developed at Global, consisting of five sessions of two days each, given across a year. We covered the same basic topics, and used the course to strengthen our senior leadership skill sets, as well as to identify potential company president candidates. It was an incredible tool for us then, and we are excited to bring a similar opportunity to the independent dealer community."
Brett Cosich from Proven Business Systems who also attended the February session said that Proven Business Systems is experiencing a period of dynamic growth unprecedented in our history. The IDEA program has accelerated my development as an executive. The tactical Management techniques I learned in IDEA will make sure that Proven Business Systems growth flows through to our bottom line profit.
The next IDEA class will be held in October of 2013. For more information, contact Ryan Smythe at Ryan.Smythe@ProsEliteGroup.com or call 1-855-Pros-ROI (776-7764) & press prompt "0".
