As the art and production supervisor, I hired Sandra to be a senior graphic designer at Combined Insurance in Toronto. Because of her organizational skills, attention to detail, sense of responsibility and willingness to learn and always go the extra mile, she quickly became an extremely valuable employee. Not only could she design from concept to print execution, but she was able and willing to work with external vendors, and mentor the more junior artists. Sandra always remained current in design software, current design trends and developments, and advised on marketing strategies. I thoroughly enjoyed Sandra's professionalism and positive attitude. I highly recommend Sandra and believe that she would be an asset to any company.
Sandy was a tremendous resource for me at Amplis. With her background in web based marketing she was able to dramatically increase the awareness of the brands that I manage. Any task that we discussed was undertaken with speed and professionalism, whether it was a simple Press Release, Trade show planning, ad co-ordination or any thing else in the marketing realm.
I was very sorry to see her leave Amplis and feel sure that she will be a valuable asset for any company that hires her.
It gives me great pleasure to write this recommendation letter for Sandy Kay.
I had the good fortune to have Sandy on our Marketing Team for over two years and this working relationship ended with my retirement in 2003.
Sandy is a very talented individual who learns quickly and has a strong work ethic. She is very creative, and brought many innovative ideas to her task of marketing Canada Life products and services to various interest groups. She was a major driver of our web-based and print communications and of our award winning portal for independent brokers. She was a strong advocate for the company in our B2B dealings with Managing General Agencies, our primary product distributors.
Sandy works well individually and as a member of work groups. She has a special zest for her work that inspires those around her and she has great fun while getting things done.
Her track record shows these qualities consistently both prior to and subsequent to her time at Canada Life. I would hire her without hesitation, safe in the knowledge that she would bring value to any organization in any number of roles.
I would be pleased to provide further details to any prospective employer.
