A Message from Richard Carrano, Purchasing Power’s President & CEO
As I look at the year we’ve just completed and the New Year we’re just beginning, I have to admit that we’ve got quite a winning team, one that’s certainly on its way to the super bowl of the voluntary benefits industry!
Thanks to you, our brokers, for making 2012 such a successful year for Purchasing Power. It is because of your commitment to our mission, and continued support of our simple-to-administer voluntary benefits program, that we enjoyed another great year.
In 2012 the number of orders increased 43 percent over the previous year. More orders mean that more employees have acquired products and services on a disciplined budgeting plan through the Purchasing Power voluntary benefit employee purchase program. More orders also mean increased sales for our brokers….like you….who have seen increased revenue as a result.
Your Purchasing Power team is here to support you as always. In 2013 you’ll see some fantastic new product and service announcements that will take employee purchase programs, and non-traditional voluntary benefits, to an entirely new level. And that includes your revenue stream, of course!
Just as we broke new ground by introducing Learning Solutions late in 2012, we’ll continue to introduce products and services employees want that are unheard of in the non-traditional voluntary benefits arena.
And most importantly in 2013, we remain resolute in expanding our business partnership with you — anticipating your individual requests and supporting your ongoing needs. The appeal of our program is a direct result of your hard work in capturing the spirit of our program and successfully communicating it to the thousands of employers and association members across the country.
Thank you for being key players on our team.
