“We are truly humbled by this recognition” says Steve Olsen, President of BrandsMart USA. “It speaks to the unbelievable effort put forth by our entire team and we are grateful to be a part of the Prosource Family!”

“On behalf of the entire ProSource team, I am delighted to congratulate Steve Olsen, Angus Bryan, Jacob Perlman and all of the brilliant minds at BrandsMart on this well-deserved honor,” remarked Jessica Paskon, Vice President, Finance and Operations, ProSource. “Thank you for being an integral part of the ProSource family and for your many years of support of the programs, vendor partners, and initiatives provided by the organization.”

“Congratulations to the BrandsMart team” says Jim Pearse, CEO of ProSource. “You clearly stood out as the pick for the ProSource PRO member of the year. Your legendary merchandising and execution are unmatched.  You have perfected the art of big box retailing delivering incredible selection and breadth of products while maintaining a superior customer service focused culture.  We are honored to recognize BrandsMart at our 2023 Spring Conference. Well done!”

Power: Maxicon, Miami, FL / Owners: Andres Klein, Ilan Weinstein, Samuel Naierman
“Receiving this recognition from Prosource confirms that joining this amazing group was one of the best decisions we have made as a company” says Andres Klein, Ilan Weinstein & Samuel Naierman, Maixcon Owners. “Without the support of our Prosource friends, both dealers and the ProSource team, we would not be able to be where we are today. From the bottom of our hearts. THANK YOU.”

“Eight years ago, before Maxicon was a member, I was touring them around the 2015 Summit in Orlando. There, they saw the value of what ProSource would offer them as a company” says Tim Bashford, Sr. Director Power Level Members. “Wow, they have seized every opportunity the group and fellow members have offered them.  From winning one of two Dream Theater Makeovers to their deep dive into adoption of group brands and solutions.  Andres, Samuel, and Ilan have followed the ProSource membership path towards great success!  Congratulations!!”

“Congratulations to Andres, Ilan and Samuel” says Jim Pearse, CEO of ProSource.  “Your success is well deserved.  While visiting your showroom in Miami, it was clear to me why your business is setting the standard in the industry.  You execute beautiful merchandising and a tight sales process but, the most impressive was the wall of pictures of all of your employees’ families.   That is truly a culture of excellence. Well done.”
