Incentive firm Motivation
Excellence has acquired Viktor Incentives & Meetings. Mark
Bondy, president and owner of Viktor since 1996, plans to stay
active with Motivation Excellence for a period of time to help transition the new entity for future success, according to a statement about the merger.
Jobes, owner and CEO of Motivation Excellence, said, “Since taking ownership
[of ME] in 2018, I’ve looked forward to expanding and bringing our exceptional
incentive solutions to more companies looking to inspire extraordinary performance.”
He added, “Having Mark on board during this time is
especially appreciated, as I know he’ll offer his incredible experience in a
collaborative way. The cohesive blending of our incredible cultures will need
special attention. His involvement will help us make a successful transition.
We have nowhere to go but up as a team.”
The new firm has a combined staff of 50 employees and 85
years of experience delivering incentive travel, meetings, events, and
points-based reward and recognition programs.
In addition to Viktor’s Traverse City, Mich., location, Motivation
Excellence has offices in Wisconsin, Missouri, New Jersey, South Carolina and
Florida. The company has been honored as a Best and Brightest Company to Work For
three years in a row; in 2021, Northstar Meetings Group lauded Motivation Excellence
as one of 10
companies that supported their employees, communities and the meetings
industry during the pandemic.
