Dear Mr. O’Neal,
I am more than happy to recommend Frank Jones as your next Project Manager. In the world of contracting, work comes and goes so unexpectedly that it can sometimes be difficult to keep good people around. When our firm hit a serious lull in work, I encouraged Frank to explore his options. He is, by far, my most qualified project manager and the one I would miss losing the most.
Frank takes each project to heart and has never missed a deadline. He has never cost me a dime in liquidated damages and he has never been the subject of a union complaint. His methods for managing workers, both union and non-union, have brought nothing but success.
Frank has been able to successfully balance that line between responsibility to the company and responsibility to his workers. Every worker who has ever been on Frank’s crew has always requested to work for him again. His productivity and profitability numbers are the best in the company.
Losing Frank is a blow to my company, but I cannot allow a good man to ignore the opportunities he has earned. If you need to discuss anything further about Frank, please call me at 000-000-0000 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Simon W. Reynolds
