Subject: Recommendation for Businessman of the Year Award
It would be my pleasure to recommend Mr. Graham Myers, CEO and Group Director of Astound Value Corporation, for the 2010 Pittsburg Businessman of the Year Award.
Mr. Graham Myers’ outstanding performance in the business sector needs no introduction as his successful business profile is in the news every week. He has been interviewed by the New York Economic Times last month for his personal involvement in closing a $50 million deal in an overseas financial transaction and making it in their annual list of Top 100 CEO Under 40. That alone has moved Astound Value Corporation up the stock market a few notches.
Not only business, Mr. Meyers has been involved in many philanthropic projects and charity. The fact that he came from such a humble background without a mentor and has achieved so much speaks volume about his determination and hard work.
It would be fitting to honor such a capable businessman who has actively contributed to the community with his philanthropic donations besides the business environment. Mr. Graham Myers would make an excellent example to all in the business world.
Thank you for giving me the honor of giving my recommendation. I am sure there are a dozen other people fitting to receive this award but personally, I recommend Mr. Graham Myers for it.
