RECOMMENDATIONS
 
Ilan Ben-David / CEO

Direct Supervisor at

CoolTouch Inc., a Syneron Candela Corporation

It is my great pleasure to recommend Sunnie Thornton for employment with any company seeking integrity, creativity, and dependability within their organization. Sunnie reported directly to me and always completed all her duties to my entire satisfaction. I have confidence that she will bring these outstanding traits and abilities to future employers.

 

Sunnie and I worked together at CoolTouch, where I served as the Chief Executive Officer. Sunnie was originally hired as the Tradeshow Coordinator, but was quickly recognized for her creativity and commitment to success. Within five months of being hired, Sunnie was promoted to Marketing & Event Coordinator.

 

When our Marketing Director resigned, Sunnie quickly stepped up to the plate and took over the high-level marketing responsibilities for the company, as well as continuing to execute her previous responsibilities seamlessly. Shortly thereafter, the difficult decision was made by our parent company to lay-off half of our staff, and once again, Sunnie came through for the company. Not only did she take on the Marketing Assistant’s duties, but also helped bridge the gap of the Inside Sales Representative vacancy as well. Again, Sunnie was recognized for her dedication and management abilities, and was promoted to Marketing Manager in early 2017.

 

Throughout her employment at CoolTouch, Sunnie has shown impressive initiative, drive, and the exceptional ability to multitask and organize priorities. Among her main achievements, Sunnie successfully managed a company-wide rebranding effort; Managed and planned over twenty-five tradeshows and events; Created multiple marketing campaigns generating over $300,000 in sales in 2016 alone; and was a key contributor and the project manager for a new and highly innovative UI/UX system for our newest medical laser device.

 

In terms of character, Sunnie is an honest, smart, dependable, and hard-working team player. She is a quick study, learning then mastering jobs, and eagerly taking on projects that require the use of her creativity and initiative.

 

Based on nearly four years of working with Sunnie, I believe she will make a strong member of any organization and shows great potential for further growth. If given the opportunity, I would not hesitate to hire her again.

Justin Hein / Managing Attorney

Indirect Supervisor at

Roni Deutch, a Professional Tax Corporation

Sunnie was an executive assistant for our General Counsel and Assistant General Counsel. She was extremely diligent, competent, and patient. She was able to manage several projects and tasks at the same time and consistently exceeded expectations in the quality and efficiency of her output. Sunnie was also a talented writer and communicator.

 

In addition, she also assisted the other executive assistants and management throughout the law firm in a variety of projects and tasks. For example, in one instance she assisted me with the management of the law firm's annual Corporate Retreat. This included gathering presentation materials from the firm's multiple department heads, condensing it, making it read consistently, and creating a power-point presentation and outline out of it.

 

I would love to have another opportunity to work with Sunnie. She was a caring person and has an enjoyable personality. She has a bright future ahead of her and those who work with her down the road will be the ones reaping the rewards of her success.

Isaak Egge / Western Zone Director

Direct Supervisor at

Heifer International

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Sunnie Thornton. For the last 18 months I have had the opportunity to directly supervise Sunnie on a daily basis and can say with absolute confidence that she will be an asset to your company and a pleasure to work with.

 

Sunnie possesses outstanding administrative and office management skills. For the last 18 months she has managed the day-to-day affairs of Heifer International’s Western Zone office, an office responsible for 13 States, 400+ volunteers and tens-of-thousands of donors. In this high volume, revenue-based environment, Sunnie approaches all situations in a calm, strategic manner, using her diverse skills-set to help increase revenue, meet the needs of constituent and increase brand awareness throughout the region. Her innovative instincts and strong communication skills have served my organization well.

 

On a personal level, Sunnie has an amazing sense of humor, is a good listener and works well with people from diverse backgrounds. She is an excellent communicator and has the ability to take complex issues and information and reformat so that all people can understand and digest appropriately. Additionally, Sunnie is always open to receiving criticism and incorporates the thoughts of co-workers and constituents in her work as needed. She is an astute problem-solver and is quick on her feet; time and time again, she has made sound decisions under her own accord that have proven beneficial to our office and our organization as a whole.

Denise Konigsfeld / Branch Manager

Direct Supervisor at

National City Mortgage

I am writing in enthusiastic support of Sunnie Thornton for a position in a Marketing/Network management role.  In my capacity as Branch Manager for National City Mortgage, I had the privilege of working with Sunnie for 2+ years.  Sunnie started with us as a receptionist but we quickly recognized her talent for marketing.  Within a very short time she had worked up a master plan for us to systematically reach out to our clients.  The materials she created were unique, engaging and conveyed both information and passion to our customers. 

Sunnie continued to demonstrate not only creative strengths, but managerial qualities as well which is why we soon promoted her to Marketing Manager.  Her ability to interface with internal customers was rivaled only by her abilities with our external vendor partners.  Sunnie was managing a Database of 10,000+ records for 20+ loan officers, insuring that the mailers she created were sent out accurately and on time! Furthermore, she is a master at Excel, Publisher and several other computer programs.
