Subject: Team Award Nomination – Stooksbury Account
The purpose of this is to nominate Jeff Wright and his team for a recognition award for the brilliant completion of a very complex project. As you know we were assigned the Stooksbury project just last month. Not only were the details needed to complete the project very complex, but the client also required a quick turn-around.
The team we pulled together to handle this important client was Jeff Wright, Steve McQuire, Margaret Lisi and Tim Bailey. Jeff took the lead right away and drew up an agenda that took all the complex factors into consideration. I assisted Jeff as a sounding board and support. I let him handle everything. He studied the contract and broke it down into manageable sections and assigned each team member a specific task. He made sure each member of the team understand their responsibility clearly. Jeff was involved every step of the way with each team member and offered input as each task was addressed.
Once they got their momentum going, they were unstoppable. In the end, after many exhausting hours and days, all the parts were completed down to the last detail. Jeff then was able to pull all the parts together and have it ready for presentation as requested by our client. Stooksbury was very please and impressed with what the team presented and will definitely be using us again.
Not only did they complete this project within the time allotted but they also did an outstanding job. The team worked long, very intense days and stayed on task. Several times they stayed after hours just to complete a section. It was inspiring to watch them pull together and perform their duties down to the last detail. They understood the importance of this assignment and were energized by the depth of skill it required of them.
I would like to see them recognized for their stellar efforts and completion of this assignment. It showed dedication, commitment and pride in their work. I am very proud of them and believe they deserve recognition for their contribution to our company.
Please let me know if there is any other information I can provide you or if we need to meet to discuss this.
