Re: C-Suite/Senior Management Position

Dear Sir/ Madam,

After you've run successful companies and dealt with people, personalities, and cultures from all over the world, you start realizing that the skills and experience that you've amassed make you well qualified to handle any challenge across most industries. I know I am. With my solid background as a successful Generalist CEO and CMD with more than over a decade of international and domestic experience, I bring with me an outstanding track-record, a futuristic approach emphasizing sales and revenue, a knack for developing great teams, a passion for success, and a promise of results. During my career, I've had great success in client relationship management, customer satisfaction and retention, and people management. I possess astute business knowledge, and I have experience contributing to strategic planning while delivering improvements in sales, processes, productivity, and costs. Doing all this with the right balance of empathy, pragmatism, and professionalism can be challenging, but the reward of doing it right is what energizes me every day.

I've come to realize that working with people, helping them understand and accept new ideas and products, and serving as a client advocate as well as being a mentor to my team are some of the things, I love to do most. Getting to use these skills in my interior contracting/furnishings and environmental companies has been very rewarding, but now I'm ready for a new chapter at home in the US and am excited about the opportunity to redirect my focus in a new industry.

Managing and growing business has always been at the forefront of my career, and I'd be thrilled to head an organization that can benefit from my passion for spearheading the introduction of innovative new products, ideas and concepts that can positively transform the way things are done. The time I've spent in Houston, Mumbai, Dubai, and Hong Kong gives me a unique perspective of the world and the time I have spent building and running businesses gives me a distinctive understanding of your current and future clients needs. Here's a brief overview of how I believe my abilities and experience would translate into a leadership role

Identifying client goals: Understanding client and employee needs is an essential element of my current role. Over the past few years, I've fine-tuned my approach and have been recognized for my ability to create open dialogue by asking thoughtful questions and soliciting feedback.

Taking a client-based first approach: And guiding my team to follow the same philosophy has allowed me to deliver more than $10 million in revenues in my current role. As a CEO, I approach every aspect of business with a solution-focused mindset, which has served our clients and teams exceptionally well.

Developing lasting relationships: Both with our clients and teams has been one of the cornerstones of my style of doing business and has yielded client and employee retention rates in the high double digits percentile. More than half of our clients have been with us for five years or longer.

I'd be eager to learn more about your goals and discuss how my background might serve to enhance your business further.

Thank you for your time. I look forward to speaking soon. Sincerely,

Rick Advano
