To whom this may concern, This letter is to serve as my formal recommendation for Han Kim.

Han has been my direct report for almost 5 years now. He has shown an interest in obtaining an MBA degree program and I feel that he will be an excellent candidate for your esteemed program. During his time with managing the global account technical team, he has clearly demonstrated a focused dedication and strong work ethics towards the account’s technical and business success. Despite the unfavorable politics played out by the competitor and customer, not only has he persevered and excelled in leading his team to win every benchmark against the well established competition but also was instrumental in driving and assisting the sales team members for winning strategies and tight communication with the corporate business unit. His contribution is clearly dictated by the fact that the account business size has grown to the unprecedented second largest and important account for the entire company now. His names were also called out by the top executives during the annual conference meeting more than twice for the job well done. In addition to his successful job contribution, his devotion towards the global-level teamwork and care for his individual team members can be seen through his working style. Constantly looking out to help his team members in trouble, he unhesitatingly travels to the customer site, even at late hours, to work side by side with the his peers to help resolve challenging issues together. In addition, his effort in cross functional teamwork can be clearly witnessed through his consistent and close interaction with his peers throughout Asia, Europe, and the USA. Consulting through conference calls and delivering the benchmark presentation slides with appreciation emails for the peers being involved, many of his team members’ results were re-used for technical meetings and company-wide presentations. With his seasoned field experience, he would now want to further strengthen his career through taking on a bigger challenge such as creating a corporate level business proposals and participating in integration of different technologies associated to ASIC and EDA industries. I am very hopeful that his plan along with skill set from your MBA program, would bring a positive impact towards our industry. For these reasons, I would highly recommend Han Kim as a candidate for your MBA program. If you have question regarding Han Kim or this recommendation, please feel free to contact me.
