Re:Tim Lundberg

I’m pleased to tell you about Tim Lundberg, whom I have known for several years.I have had the privilege to observe him in a variety of settings.

Tim has substantial “people” skills.I have seen him converse with senior members of management and janitors with equal ease and charm.I feel that his empathy with other people and his desire to learn from them may be interpreted by some as shyness, but I can assure you that there is core strength in Tim that any employer would find extremely valuable.

As you already know by his resume, Tim has done an admirable job preparing himself for life, winning accolades at every position he’s obtained.In short, I heartily recommend Tim to you – for his ability to deal with people, his achievement, and his energetic approach to dealing with life’s vagaries.
