Rob worked for me as a Regional Sales Manager and Trade Show Coordinator for 2 ½; years at Fast Industries, Inc. While under my supervision, his responsibilities included selling our product line of store fixtures and merchandising aids to an assigned territory as well as overseeing all phases (planning, merchandising, set-up, staffing, etc.) of the Trade Shows we exhibited at. During his tenure at Fast Industries Rob distinguished himself by consistently performing at the highest level possible. He is a proven professional who is extremely organized, very conscientious and always diligent in completing his assigned tasks. He is highly intelligent and has excellent analytical and communication skills.

Rob is a true team player and has the ability to create an outstanding rapport with his internal and external customers. He was always highly respected by the people who worked with him. Rob did an excellent job for us and I would highly recommend him for a position with your organization. Please let me know if I can provide you with any further information.

Over the course of the past year Rob Milich has answered directly to me as the Tenant Coordinator. With enthusiasm he has always represented the company’s interest when dealing with our customer’s, general contractors and municipalities around the state.

Rob demonstrated loyalty to those he reported to and positive energy to accomplish corporate goals. We are truly sorry to see Rob leave Ramco Gershenson due to our company’s need to reorganize because of the economic downturn.

We can only hope that some organization will be lucky to hold on to him so they can enhance their future growth. He is truly a team player that any company would be happy to have on their staff.
