FarStone Technology Inc. Achieves Record Revenues and Profit in Its Last Audit
IRVINE, Calif. – Under the leadership of Tom Fedro, executive vice president of Sales, Marketing and Operations, FarStone has been completely turned around. The company that was a sea of red ink in 2004 has been transformed to record revenue and profits in its 2007 audit. By moving the company away from the retail channel to emphasize a new commitment to the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) sales channel, Fedro and his team drove the company to a new level of financial success with margins exceeding 98 percent as customer satisfaction metrics rose to heights never seen before. At the same time bad debt was virtually eliminated, return rates dropped by 75 percent leading to a very strong financial statement. Fedro credits his team with tremendous execution on the plan, “We came into a very difficult situation; fortunately we hired the right talent and executed effectively to bring about the good news in our last audit. With our sights clearly set on continuing our exceptional growth in the OEM channel we are also driving new solutions to the small business market (SMB), I expect this next year to be very exciting as we build out our value added reseller (VAR) channel.”
