The Professional Beauty Association (PBA) has released results from its 2014 Biennial Distributor Benchmarking Survey. The report includes information on sales, human resources, financials, warehouse/freight, sales meetings, stores, education, advertising, and promotion and technology sections. Nearly 50 independent organizations participated in the survey, with 78% of distributors reporting higher sales last year. "The 2014 Biennial edition of the PBA Distributor Benchmarking Survey is a must read if you operate a professional distributorship in the beauty industry," says Steve Neumaier, president of Goldwell New York and chair of the PBA Task Force. "This comprehensive report allows distributors to instantly identify areas in which their company excels or needs improvement." A vast number of participating distributors also reported an overall greater outlook for 2015. "Benchmarking tools provide quick access to critical key metrics,” says Elizabeth Fantetti, director of membership and association programs. “The 2014 Distributor Benchmarking Survey report focuses on the essential financial, management, and operations data and practices of a distributor in the beauty industry. PBA members continually cite it as one of the most valuable resources that the association offers."
