“I have had the privilege of working with Lorraine as a co-worker, a reporting staff person and as a consulting client, intermittently over years. In every instance she has proven to be a “cut-above” the crowd. Her high level of productivity is not only result of her high energy, but her ability to plan and organize her work well. In addition to being able to quickly grasp big picture concepts, she never fails to overlook the details required for excellent execution.
She also has remarkable people skills; everything from recruiting, mentoring, and managing a team to crafting solid customer relationships.
Whenever character counts (when doesn’t it?), Lorraine will be one of the finalist candidates. Her integrity is impeccable. For her it’s more than just good business, it’s a core life value.
I know letters like this tend to be full of hype, but in this case, all I’ve said is simply the truth. Lorraine is an uncommon woman.
If your organization is looking for someone that will help raise your standards of relationships, excellence, and productivity, I urge you to give her serious consideration. I’m confident you’ll be pleased you did.”
