Bienvenidos a Mexico- el Segundo parte
A- A A+

Work hard/ Play hard is one of the Protis mantras and nothing epitomizes that effort more than the annual Protis Pacesetter Awards trip.  This trip is won by achieving a specific, yearly, billings goal.  It’s a tough number to hit and the effort is rewarded! 

The Excellence in Playa Mujeres, Mexico set an amazing scene for Protis’ celebration.  Sun, surf and adventure provided a fantastic backdrop for our team to get away and enjoy some much needed R&R. 

Rogue rental car tours with Art across the Mexican countryside, tennis competitions, yoga on the beach with our own yogi, sunset catamaran sails, Cancun shopping, Zumba, and poolside relaxation were all in a days work.  Plus, we would be amiss to leave out all the food, beverages and the famous concoction called the “Iceberg”- A Corona Beer with a Margarita floater.

A special shout out to Chuck on his victorious win over the Iowa group in the playoffs for in the pool  “name that tune”.  Thank you Butler football for playing Metallica- “Back in Black” everyday in the weight room.  Chuck nailed it on the first note! We aren’t very competitive.  

Congratulations to our team and their guests on an outstanding accomplishment.  We are looking forward to next year when the winners will visit Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.  

Hats off to The Excellence Playa Mujeres.  This is the only location Protis has ever visited twice! Protis’ goal has always been to visit a new property for each trip but we couldn’t resist revisiting this incredible location.
