Reference: Patrick Richter
I am very pleased to write this letter of reference on behalf of Patrick Richter. In my capacity as CFO of Vistaview, Inc., I have known Patrick as one of my key employees for almost four years. Vistaview is a Web Services development company that specializes in designing, developing and maintaining corporate intelligence databanks. Overall, I believe Patrick to be a skilled, thoughtful, and thoroughly professional Information Technology expert, which I will briefly elaborate on below.
I first got to know Patrick when he helped us develop a software system as a Research Assistant in Computer Science Department at the University of Seattle. On that project I was impressed by his initiative and his thirst for knowledge. He also showed strong analytical and problem solving skills. In fact, it was for those qualities that we hired him at Vistaview, Inc. after his graduation in 2003.
During the more than three years that Patrick has worked with me at Vistaview Inc., I have always been impressed by his outstanding diligence and his high level of technical expertise. Indeed, I have been more than satisfied with our working relationship. During this period, I also had the great pleasure of watching him blossom from a junior software developer into a fully functioning business-oriented Principal Software Architect who played a primary architecture and software management role on some of our company’s key projects. I was particularly impressed by the professionalism and technical innovation that Richard demonstrated on our Corporate Intelligence project.
Not only is Patrick highly intelligent; he also is very hard-working. He has tackled every project with enthusiasm and competence. He invariably understands exactly what a project is all about from the outset, and how to get it done quickly and effectively. He consistently produces superior quality work, on time, and within budget targets. I see Patrick as a true example of the type of employee that every employer wants: accountable and responsible, with a superior work ethic and a high degree of integrity.
In closing, I recommend Patrick Richter very highly for any position in the IT field that involves complexity and creativity, with high quality output requirements. He is a bright and hardworking person who will do his very best to do an outstanding job for whomever he works. If I may be of further assistance with regard to Patrick, please contact me at 402 795-6345 or [email protected].
