It Works! Global CEO, Mark Pentecost, announced this week that fellow direct sales company, Vitamark International (Tom "Big Al" Schreiter – Photo), will be joining the It Works! Global family on August 1, 2012. Both companies have a combined two decades worth of experience in direct sales and this move will add talent to continue implementing the It Works! Global 5 Star initiatives in customer service, internet technology and software enhancements.
It Works! Global is a leading force in the industry with their first-to-market, tightening, toning, and firming wrap, the Ultimate Body Applicator®. Vitamark distributor organizations will move over intact and will operate solely under the name of It Works! Global, including the It Works! Global compensation plan and training.
“With our growth and momentum, the Vitamark team will get to experience great opportunity as we combine our strengths to generate success,” says Pentecost. “Much like It Works! Global, Vitamark’s culture is ‘more Jimmy Buffett but we are both business savvy like Warren Buffett.’ I am excited to continue to spread our message across the world of friendships, fun, and freedom.”
It Works! Global, based in Bradenton, Fla., has seen explosive growth creating over $100 million in sales in the first seven months of this year, and was recognized on the 2011 Inc. 500/5000 list as one of the top companies in their category. It Works! Global is open in the following markets: United States, Canada, Australia, and European Union.
“The founders of Vitamark, including world renowned trainer Tom “Big Al” Schreiter, Tom Mitcham, and myself are excited to be a part of the momentum as we align with the hottest, instant-results product company in our industry,” says Vitamark President, David Bertrand. “All three of us will continue to expand, support and lead our group in building It Works! Global around the world.”
