Dear Mr. Del Rosario

I am recommending Ms. Diane Galera as suitable for your company TRY Solutions in Associate Marketing Specialist post. She has worked with me for five years as an Associate Marketing Manager.

Through the years, she showed nothing but ineffable performance and professionalism. She has contributed so much to the company such as doing her responsibilities and duties excellently and most of the time, more than what is expected from her.

She has excellent communication skills, demonstrated great leadership, has a positive outlook, and trustworthy. She can handle any task even without supervision and her analytical and data interpretation skills are very commendable.

Aside from her verbal communication skills, we also admired her written communication skill which is essential to confer with clients, develop marketing and branding language and copy, and communicate between teams.

I believe that her dedication to work will be your company’s asset. Should you have further questions or need some clarity, do not hesitate to contact me at 456-6789.
