Branch Manager


New York 112143

Dear Mr. Simpsons,

I hope this letter finds you in fine condition. I am writing this letter to recommend Miss Emma Watson for the position of Administrative Manager at ABN AMRO Bank in your branch office. I had the opportunity to work with Emma during her Ph.D. She had been a bright student during her MBA and continued to impress with her efficiency, dedication, and diligence in her field.

Emma is presently working with American Bank as a Sales Manager. In this role, she had been performing very well and even accomplished various recognition in her last two-year career. She has also been awarded for the most talented new entrant and most regular employee in the office along with other recognition.

I believe that Emma would be best in your bank at the post of Administrative Manager. She is such an organized person and a dedicated professional that you will find that your search for a committed and highly professional personnel ends with her. I think she would get to learn new skills and abilities under your leadership and will score higher accomplishments in her professional life.

I strongly recommend Emma as the best candidate for the Administrative Manager in your bank. I am sure she will become an excellent addition to your team.

Please feel free to contact me for further details or queries at [phone number].
