“I would like to recommend Mark Simmons to help your organization with branding, marketing and reconnecting with your values.  In his position as Manager, Marketing and Communications, Mark was employed with our organization from 2002 – 2012.  Mark did an excellent job in his position and was an asset to our organization during his tenure with ABC Recycling.  He is extremely organized, can work independently or with a team, to ensure that all projects are completed in a timely manner.  Mark’s creativity and competence were instrumental in implementing various communications and branding initiatives in our organization.  For example, Mark successfully led our corporate re-branding project in 2007.  These qualities, combined with his “can-do” attitude, ensured the success of his work with ABC.  Mark fulfilled employment responsibilities with little supervision.  The position required interaction with the public, as well as the ability to lease between different departments.  Success was dependant on strong communication and interpersonal skills.  I am happy to recommend Mark and can speak to his work ethic and professionalism.   Please feel free to contact me should you want more insight into the impact Mark has left us with for our organization.”
