Dear Mr. John, 

I would like to take the opportunity to offer an official recommendation for Mr. Mark Smith as the senior executive of Protext software Solutions in the California branch. I have known Mark for the past 4 years and I feel that he is a deserving candidate for the post of Project Manager.

And soon he was promoted as a team leader. He has been proving his mettle with every stepping stone he overleaf with his excellent leadership qualities. He has been an enthusiastic, inspiring and motivating leader. He has strong dedication and takes the incredible initiative to do work effectively and efficiently. 

I believe that Mark has all the abilities and qualities which are required for the position of a project manager. I highly recommend Mark Smith for the responsible post of a project manager and hope that you will carefully consider this letter of promotion.

Yours faithfully, 

Ryan McCarthy.

Hello Sir,

I hope that you are doing good and things are good both in your personal and professional life.

I would like to take a moment of yours to bring to your notice, a very hardworking employee of our team who I feel will be a good fit for the opening we have on the higher post.

John has been a part of our production team for 3 years now and from time to time he has proven his worth and proved us right by hiring him. He has done wonders in this limited-time like he has single-handedly delivered a project to the clients without any delays and errors and hence I feel this will be a good time for us to promote him to the position of team leader.

John has given us a commitment of 3 more years on papers and I feel he will be an asset to the organization and we will be able to handle a team with 5 or above number of people as he has been a great team player and has showcased excellent leadership skills.

Kindly accept my recommendation for his promotion. Looking forward to hearing from you.

(Sub- Recommendation for promotion of Ben Thomas)

Hello Sir,

It’s my great pleasure to write to you about a very diligent and hardworking employee of ours. Ben has been a part of our team since the time of our inception. He joined us as an intern in the video marketing team and currently working as a team leader. He has been promoted thrice in these 7 years and has been working very hard which nobody in the company will disagree with. 

Ben has been one of the best employees that we have. He is good at client handling and currently, he has showed immense strength as a team leader by handling a varied team of people from different backgrounds with great ease.

Its time that we promote him as the head of the marketing department because of his skills in the digital marketing domain, he has successfully run more than 10 campaigns for our clients from a different domain.

Do let me know if you require any of his past performance reports for a qualitative review of him. Looking forward to knowing your decision.

(Sub – Recommendation letter for our employee)

Sales Manager
Houston Area

Respected Sir,

I recently came across a news that we are looking forward to having a territory head for our new division which is opening post-Christmas. It will be great for you to know that we have many good prospects for the role but the one who best suits that profile will be Tom, who currently is working under me for the last 5 months and previously was under the guidance of you.

I know you must be familiar with this guy because with his work he has been able to get a lot of limelight in the last quarter. He has been continuously improving his performance and has already completed his targets for the next quarter.

I feel for the role that you are looking for, we need a self-starter and also someone who is excellent at building relations with hands-on experience of market analysis, so as to reach the right clients and hence I feel that he will be the best suited for the role as he has been trained on told of market intelligence under you and have done sales under me where he took the first step to reach out to the prospective clients and with a success rate of more than 70% he has sold many products which were initially not that much in-demand.

I would request you to review his last performance reports and decide it yourself and I will be happy to help you with training him to work as a territory manager which will be some additional responsibilities for him but I am sure he will fulfill the roles and responsibilities perfectly.
