"To Whom it may Concern:

I highly recommend James Atkinson as a candidate for employment.

I have known James for 13 years with the first 12 years being in my capacity as a Sales Manager for Hein Gericke UK Ltd.

James was employed by Hein Gericke UK Ltd as Warranties Manager and I knew him professionally between April 2001 and Sept 2012: additionally he also managed a successful eBay store. Unfortunately he was a victim of the company becoming insolvent and as such was made redundant.

James latterly managed three employees and was responsible for shop support where it involved warranty issues and was a direct liaison to repair organisations and suppliers. He also maintained a chain of up to 48 stores with the office equipment required to function.

He was also directly responsible for the eBay enterprise from stock selection and recall to final arrival at the customer, with the eBay store having had over 2500 sales and retaining 100% positive feedback, a great credit to James effort and diligence.

James additionally negotiated and managed accounts in Poland where he successfully sold damaged returned product and was responsible for the centralisation and supply of damaged/warranted product to trade fairs in the UK.

James has excellent verbal communication skills. In addition, he is extremely organized, reliable, honest and computer literate.

Once tasked James can work independently and is able to follow through to ensure that the job gets done whatever it takes. He is flexible and willing to work on any project that is assigned to him.

James was quick to volunteer to assist in other areas of company operations, always putting the company first.

James would be a tremendous asset for any company and has my highest recommendation.

If you have any further questions with regard to his background and experience, please do not hesitate to call me."

Yours sincerely,

Alan Cundy
