Re: Character reference for John Glenning
To Whom It May Concern:
It is with great pleasure that I offer my letter in support of John Glenning’s professional
services with your organization.
I have had the pleasure of knowing John Glenning for the last 20 months. My
interactions with John have been primarily through our mutual involvement with the
Professional Opportunity Developers group, the Fingerlakes Entrepreneurs Forum, the
Tompkins County Chamber of Commerce, and other professional networking forums. I
have always found John to be personable, professional, intelligent, and a great team
I am always impressed with John’s optimistic attitude, willingness to take risks, and
ability to embrace change. Furthermore, John has shown himself to be resourceful and
driven toward his personal and professional goals. These are all traits that many
employers tell me are difficult to find in one person, yet highly desirable.
It is without hesitation that I recommend John Glenning as a valued member to add to
your professional team. Please feel free to call on me personally if you wish to further
discuss John Glenning’s personal qualities and professional qualifications.
