Nolan Santana,

It is with a strong sense of pride that I recommend Allan Ellen for the position of CEO with your organization. For many years, Allan was our managing director and his performance was exceptional. After a few years, we suspected that Allan required advancement we could not offer him, which is why I write you this letter with nothing but admiration for Allan and his abilities.

Allan’s management style is extremely accessible and he is a very hands-on administrator. He has all of the traits you would need in a CEO, especially as your organization looks to expand into new business territory. Allan is fearless in his business approach and his instincts are impeccable.

Everyone at this company has nothing but respect and admiration for Allan. He helped to turn our little company into an industry powerhouse and he managed to do it while still making friends in the industry. Allan would be an excellent CEO for your company and he would bring your organization nothing but success.

We are sad to see Allan go, but we are excited for his future. If you need more information, please call me at 000-000-0000 or email me at

Sincerely Yours,

Winston R. Gart
