When we hired Frank he was greeted with a tremendous task — to help us maintain a multi-million dollar commerce web site retailing thousands of products, while working with our Marketing department to build additional online stores, produce periodic promotions and publish a regular email newsletter with a 100,000-subscriber base. Frank quickly put his creative, analytical and problem solving skills in high gear and carried out all of his job duties while improving our operations....
Frank has made a significant contribution to our organization and I am confident that he will prove to be an asset to you if you add him to your team.
