Dear Mr. / Ms. Name:

I have been watching the rapid growth of Quality Construction Corporation over the last three years and have been impressed with the company’s strategic leadership.  Your strategic positioning in the value-added segment of the market has put you ahead of your competition.

A company with your extraordinary success may be in need of a strong executive to contribute to your company’s growth.  My credentials include an MBA in Business Administration and a B.S. in Finance from Rivier College and over 10 years’ experience in corporate planning and finance.  This included two years as a Director of Corporate Finance and nearly four years as Director of Corporate Planning.  I have a proven track record of success.

• Successful acquisition of two companies, doubling the company’s manufacturing capacity.
• Led company’s entry into the laminated board market, now most profitable segment of the business.
• Sale of company’s Compressed Board Division to Champion International Corporation.

I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you to discuss the contribution I could make to your organization.  I will call you in a few days to follow up this letter and to determine a convenient time.  Or, if you prefer, please feel free to call me at (phone).
