Bruce Ramstad: 306 Network Placements and Counting . . .

Yes, Top Echelon Network Preferred Member David Kersey has made 99 Network placements during his tenure on the Network, and yes, that’s quite impressive.  (In fact, Kersey’s now on the verge of his 100th Network placement, since he just had an offer accepted in a split placement situation with Mike Helffrich, CPC of Helffrich International.  Once payment is received, that will make placement #100 for Kersey.)

However, that’s still a far cry from the recruiter who has made the most placements in Top Echelon Network.  That Preferred Member is Bruce Ramstad, who recently made his 306th Network placement.  That deal leads off this week’s list of completed split placements in The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog.

Ramstad joined Top Echelon Network no April 6, 1991, meaning that his 21st anniversary as a Preferred Member recruiter is quickly approaching.  (Kersey’s 20th anniversary in the Network is next month.)

No other recruiter in the history of Top Echelon Network has made 300 placements, and in actuality, there aren’t any active Members who are within shouting distance of Ramstad.  Ramstad received a special award for making 300 placements in the Network at the 2009 National Convention.  For now, he’s the undisputed “Placement King of Top Echelon Network.”  Only time will tell if he will eventually be dethroned . . .
