 To
Whom
It
May
Concern:
 It
is
with
great
pleasure
that
I
write
this
letter
in
support
of
Victor
Colonna’s
 application
for
employment
with
your
company.
 I
have
known
Victor
for
the
past
30
years
on
both
a
professional
and
personal
level.
 I
am
his
personal
physician
and
he
has
called
on
me
as
a
professional
 pharmaceutical
representative
during
that
time.
His
employment
history
with
 Merck,
Astra
Zeneca,
and
Santarus
has
been
extraordinary
and
impeccable.
 Victor
is
the
quintessential
sales
specialist.

He
is
extremely
knowledgeable
about
 his
products
and
eager
to
answer
and
advise
his
physicians
regarding
the
most
 current
pharmaceutical
data
available.
He
has
an
engaging
affable
personality
and
is
 always
well
groomed
and
dressed.
His
career
has
spanned
the
specialties
of
Primary
 Care,
Gastroenterology,
Otolaryngology,
Endocrinology,
and
Bariatric
Surgery.
To
be
 professionally
competent
as
a
sales
representative
in
all
these
fields
takes
a
special
 person
and
Victor
is
that
SPECIAL
PERSON.
 The
past
decade
saw
the
growth
of
Managed
Care
in
the
WNY
area
and
with
it
the
 many
frustrations
and
difficulties
faced
by
physicians
in
attempting
to
prescribe
the
 correct
drug(s)
for
their
patients’
disease(s).
Victor
guided
his
physicians
through
 the
morass
of
managed
care
paper
work
and
provided
us
with
consistent
and
very
 knowledgeable
managed
care
formulary
resources.
He
constantly
delivered
 pertinent
clinical
updates,
which
were
relative
to
product
access
and
approval.
 I
feel
there
is
no
one
more
qualified
than
Victor
in
the
professional
pharmaceutical
 arena
to
secure
a
job
as
a
Senior
Sales
Representative.
I
HIGHLY
recommend
him
 WITHOUT
reservation
and
feel
he
would
be
a
tremendous
asset
to
your
company.

 If
I
can
be
of
any
further
help
to
you
regarding
this
applicant,
please
do
not
hesitate
 to
contact
me
at
my
office
or
(716)
713‐9059.
 
 Sincerely,
 
 Howard
