I have worked closely with Inna Chernysh from December 2007 till September 2010 while she has served as a peer advisor and fancier in our sales business development office. Ms. Chernysh is an exceptionally motivated and talented young woman. I firmly believe that she will be successful in whatever she pursues.

Ms. Chernysh has a very sharp mind and is very perceptive in her ability to read people and situations. Inna is strongly committed to the organizations for which she works. She assertively addresses problems and exhibits a maturity beyond her years in her approach to situations.

Inna has digested large volumes of information in her role as Fancier. She has shown the ability to clearly explain complex concepts to our clientele. She has developed very strong relationships with her peers and our professional staff.

I am very comfortable with allowing Inna to represent the office to external constituents. This confidence was evidenced by my recent decision to have Inna accompany a group of seniors to a sales meeting. She effectively interfaced with corporate representatives and gathered a great number of sales leads for our company expansion project.

In conclusion, I am certain that Inna will become a very accomplished business person. She possesses the right combination of drive, intelligence and interpersonal skills to excel.

In addition, she has shown an aptitude for world economics. I am proud to recommend Inna Chernysh to you—I have found her work, character, and office manner most satisfactory.  She is dependable, eager, and hard working.

Inna was responsible for communication with our clients from CIS countries, supporting documents for international supplying of agricultural equipment, representing Ukrainian company as our client at the meetings with our distributors; also she did financial analyses of sales activity and profitability of our company. During this period she worked in three different departments of our company such as Sales Department, Financial and Accounting Departments and showed good results on these positions.

Inna can work independently and is able to follow through to ensure that the job gets done. She is flexible and willing to work on any project that is assigned to her. Inna was quick to volunteer to assist in other areas of company operations, as well.
