Richard Chetty, MBA was Lynne's client

"Lynne was able to easily identify the strategic benefits of implementing a new solution currently being used effectively by BMW SA and our dealer network."

Richard Chetty BMW Group Strategic Services Manager

12 January 2007

To whom it may concern,

Lynne McCarthy has introduced herself and the Company she worked for, to BMW SA, early in 2006.  She also introduced and managed a concept that will effectively be rolled out throughout our Dealer Network with huge potential success.  It has been an absolute pleasure to have her as a Solution Provider working in close association with BMW.
 
She has interacted with other departments and key role players at BMW SA.  Reported feedback attested to the fact that she always conducted herself in a professional and respectful manner. I was always the recipient of a positive report from them.

I regard Lynne as an honest individual with very reliable traits.  She has a somewhat very direct and persistent approach which benefited
her and the company she worked for in being chosen as BMW’s Solution Provider for a particular aspect of our business.

Lynne is dedicated to making a success of what she does, using her knowledge and ability, making sound business decisions, helping develop strategy into operation, planning and ensuring the overall smooth running of a very technically demanding project. As a client, I was most satisfied with her involvement in this project and her continuous concern and input through the implementation phase of the project.

I believe that Lynne possesses the necessary skills to contribute in an effective and meaningful manner in most employment contexts.

Yours Faithfully,

Richard Chetty
