To whom it may concern,
It is my pleasure to recommend ••••• ••••• for employment with your firm. His performance working as our Gulf Coast Market Development Representative proved that he will be a valuable addition to any company. I worked directly with ••••• for three years in my capacity as Director of Marketing and Field Operations for the Steel Framing Alliance, and he was a valued member of my team. He was an enthusiastic and tireless worker, and was successful in developing the infrastructure necessary for widespread use of CFS in the Gulf Region. He also exceeded his forecast for delivering mid-rise business opportunities to our investor members in •••••, the first full year of our segment focused marketing program.
••••• consistently delivered well-researched and well-written reports on time and he possesses good analytical and communication skills. He was also well respected by his co-workers, our SFA members, and his business contacts for his courteous and constructive behavior.
If his performance in our company is a good indication of how he would perform in yours, he would be an extremely positive asset to your program.
