Recommendations

Tim Downey, Founder & CEO, Southern Land Company, LLC

Doug Sharp, Vice President, Town Planning & Urban Design Studio, Southern Land Company, LLC

“Rob worked with Southern Land Company for over eight years. He was an instrumental part of the land planning team that provided designs for nationally recognized developments such as Westhaven and Tucker Hill. These two developments encompassed over 3,500 acres and 4,000 home sites. Rob is a team player and an extremely loyal employee. He was more than willing to put in the extra time to get the job completed with a high level of quality. Rob went above and beyond his duties to make sure that each person within the company understood the vision of the plan. Rob was also very proactive and worked with the construction crews to assist in foreseeing opportunities in the field that proved to be positive improvements to the company's overall performance. I strongly recommend Rob and I believe he would be a valuable asset to any organizational interested in delivering a high quality development.” January 21, 2009

“To whom it may concern: I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for Rob Molchan. Rob worked with me in the Design and Engineering Department at Southern Land Company, in the capacity of Senior Town Planner/Landscape Architect. During our service together I interacted frequently with him and depended on him. Very much a team player, Rob was always punctual, yet easygoing. He was dedicated to his work and the job at hand. I would like to be very clear about why Rob is no longer with Southern Land Company. Rob is available only because of their recent reorganization. They did not want to lose him, but it was unavoidable. In closing, let me say I have no hesitation in recommending Rob Molchan for any position pertaining to Town Planning/Landscape Architecture. I feel confident he would be an asset to your organization.

Sincerely,

Rob Burkhart, COO/Chief Operating Officer Allied Home Technologies” January 6, 2009
