To Whom It May Concern:
Victor Rivera was an employee of Hesco Inc, from March of 1978 through May of 2009. Within that time Victor has shown excellent and outstanding work performance . His contribution to Hesco Northeast in the capacity of Facility Manager along with his fresh enthusiastic personality was a welcome addition to this company. He was extremely knowledgeable in all of his administrative and operational duties. He worked well with other employees and was widely respected by all management within our company. His perseverance and dedication was always reflective in his unyielding approach to all tasks assigned him.
It was with deep regret when we had to eliminate our Northeast Facility due to the economic turns that have been very detrimental to our industry. We only wish the best of luck to Victor in the future and feel that any future endeavors will only be successful for both him and his future employer.
