Please allow this letter to serve as my official recommendation for James Harris as a loan officer for your organization. I was the branch manager at James’ last employer before the federal government forced the branch to close. The impropriety that inspired the closure occurred in the headquarters and is not a reflection of my or James’ performance.
James is a fair loan officer who is not afraid to make difficult decisions at critical moments. When James does decide to take a risk, he always backs up his decision with solid facts. I never had a problem with any of the risky loans James wrote, especially when his default rate was below five percent. He is a great judge of people and he makes solid business decisions.
In my opinion, any organization would be truly lucky to have James as a loan officer because of his ability to do good business. He also becomes an ambassador for the organization to the public because of his ability to make seemingly difficult situations work in everyone’s favor. I endorse James wholeheartedly and I would be more than happy to supply you with more details if you need them, or any other details regarding James’ performance.
