Sample Management Cover Letter
Owen Shivas & Friends
Mr. John Owens, President
3115 Madison Avenue
New York, NY 10017
Dear Mr. Owens:
I am replying to your April 25 advertisement in Exec-U-Net for a General
Manager's position in the United Kingdom.
As a sales and marketing executive for the past 20 years with ARA, I
have elected to make a career change after returning to England from a
senior level assignment in the U.S. I am seeking a general manager's
position in the United States or Europe. My past assignments in Europe
and my in-depth knowledge of U.K. markets may be of interest.
As Director of Foodservice and New Business Development in Europe, I was
responsible for strategic planning, acquisitions, operations, new
business development and negotiating marketing/distribution alliances.
Among my key accomplishments, I :
* Researched, developed and implemented a strategy to expand ARA's
business portfolio (foodservice) while strengthening the core business.
* Acquired, managed, and revitalized a foodservice disposables
manufacture to serve as the cornerstone of the new business venture.
* Supported the new business expansion through new product development
and strategic marketing alliances.
* Developed and implemented a Euro-branding strategy resulting in a
Pan-European identity for the company.
I believe my experience and qualifications would provide you with a
different viewpoint in managing change. My resume is enclosed for your
reference. Should you have an interest, I can be contacted at the above
telephone numbers. Thank you for your consideration.
Gordon B. Walters
