Protis Global has formalized as part of its core competency something we have always done. In 2016, we formally gave it a name: PG Advisory. We are helping our clients do assessments through their acquisitions, we help in restructuring, we are to open our strong network to help our clients who have board appointments to fill. We also can give our clients access to our rich “rolodex” for those that want to: acquire, be acquired or raise capital.
Michael Bitar lead his team to the top in 2016 as the #1 team in the world in revenue. A true testament to his leadership, the PG team model and the winning culture in our four walls.
Michael Evers has been a catalyst in our ever growing business footprint in hospitality and has done work with iconic brands in 2016.
We welcome 2017 as we believe as our industry and client needs change, we have been proactive in our infrastructure, hiring and training that we are well positioned to help our clients take that next step and will be able to provide simple solutions to seemingly complex issues our clients face in today’s business climate.
We look forward to helping YOU.
The Protis commitment to excellence within the Global Food & Beverage Division and our sister Banking Division is based on more than the desire to provide clients with outstanding products and services. Rather, it’s based on a philosophy of leadership within our industry to deliver the Right Talent on Time that aligns and Fits our clients culture to positively impact Retention.
Derived from the Greek word Protos, meaning first, or leader, Protis makes a point of staying ahead of the curve and setting new standards. Being in front allows Protis to guide clients and the industry in new, innovative directions.
We only had a few team members remain and join us in Miami and so the challenge was to not only survive the move but re-load with a new team, train them and get them integrated into the New Team Model introduced in beginning in 2014. This doesn’t even take into account the cultural change aspect and ensuring the PG DNA would still be running through our collective bodies as we grew a new team.
The results speak for themselves. We built and trained a whole new team lead by the our Director of Talent and Training, Skye Miller. The leadership of Michael Bitar and his team performance, steady growth by Vern Davis team and consistent year after year results from Michael Ganly was critical to our transition.
Not only did the vets steady the ship, Protis Global grew by 33% in its first year in Miami and set an all-time Protis Global record. None of this happens without some talented newcomers like Andres Rodriguez, Frank Judd, Bryan Passman, Richard Ledesma and many others along the way.
2016 has much to live up to as we continue the mission.
As is our culture, we were transparent about the move and the opportunity that was before us to exponentially grow and expand our business in Miami. We did however, have to say goodbye to many of our Indy team. That is the reality.
Then something special happened…Protis Global executed this major move and delivered a year over year marginal increase in business while coming off 3 consecutive years of double digit increases. This was done by a group of winners that has defined Protis Global over the years and that has become the PG identity.
We have quickly built out a team of 14 in Miami by years end 2014 with some incredible and talented team members that are clearly driven winners.
Through all of moving parts, Team Bitar and Team Davis made Pacesetter once again and Worldwide TOP 5 honors!
The Strategic Objective built in the summer of 2014 for 2015 and 2016 brings forth some incredible plans and new opportunities.
Stay tuned to what lies ahead. #PGRise #PGLife
Decisions like this cause some growth pains but we are committing to build the best search firm in the world at what we do and hiring baddest, coolest and most competitive winners. The excitement toward our purpose is energizing like the early days of our history.
2013 also was another year of success as we changed 75 people’s lives helped a client go from getting funding and zero team members to having launched one of the most exciting spirit companies and Protis building the team that is killing it!!!
Pacesetter was held in the Dominican Republic and fun was had by all and of course the 2013 Branta Winner was amongst the group and it was our 3 Time Winner and our first ever back to back winner, Mr. Michael Ganly!
We are excited about 2014 and the upcoming move and the new team members we will build out in Miami!
Our Pacesetters enjoyed a wonderful trip to Playa Mujeres, Mexico and experienced the beach, a yacht excursion and some rogue country trips with the locals.
Congrats to Michael Ganly as the 2012 Branta Award Winner awarded each year as selected by our peers.
Vern Davis is on pace to have his best year ever and the sales leadership is taking Protis to new levels of productivity not only in revenue but in shaping our teams lives to their scorecard.
Protis officially opened up the Miami Office in 2011 including the development of our Global Recruitment Division. We have significant depth in Africa, Latin America, Canada, Middle East, Australia, EU and Asia.
We are focusing on removing artificial barriers set to performance that were only enhanced throughout a tough economy. To that end, the team continues to work at record levels and we are removing the barriers many companies continue to battle each day.
In addition, Protis was named 2010 International Office of the Year!!
In October 2010, Kent Burns took the role of VP of Sales and leads day to day sales while Bert Miller has taken on the responsibility of: People, Position PEI to win & Profit.
We also crystallized the Protis Way while re-launching the Value Prop. along with engaging our training program and focusing it around: Communication Model, Execution Model & Value Prop Execution. All of this is attributed to our Core team along with new hires.
This has resulted in at LEAST 5 Pacesetter Winners that will enjoy a trip to the Excellence Resort in Mexico in April of 2011!!!
We attribute the success and performance foremost to our Core Team and then the ability to articulate and gain buy in from our clients the Protis Value Proposition which has a clear point of difference and performance that can be replicated across our practice. This has been important to our clients because in times like 2009, they could not afford to make a mistake.
The heart of a true champion is not just thriving when things are good but in fact setting the course and paving a way during difficult times and 2009 Protis was able to do just that…We were able to in fact garner share in our space and again have some of the highest performers in the world within the recruiting industry.
We look forward to 2010 and to benefit from the great relationships we built in 2009 and grow our position as one of the Top 1% of the USA’s top search firms.
Our 2008 Pacesetters included Michael Bitar, Lisa Webber, Michael Ganly, Vernon Davis and Myron Davis. Protis also had a couple of near misses that we are sure will qualify for the 2009 Pacesetter.
Protis becomes a member of the prestigious “President’s Gold Club” for over 1,000,000 in sales for the year 1997. This achievement was accomplished in only our second year of business.
Protis moves from our original “birth place” in Danville, Indiana due to lack of space for our growing team to our new home in the Ameriana Bank Building in Avon, Indiana on the west side of Indianapolis.
