Merie Howells Initially we met and instructed several local agencies so as to ensure full coverage/exposure. It quickly became apparent however that Merle was the only agent to have taken full notice of our instructed requirements, as other agencies flooded us with inappropriate candidates who clearly had not been pre-screened, despite assurances to the contrary. Meanwhile, Merle furnished us with approved candidates who matched our entry criteria. Following this initial recruitment we took the decision to work solely with Merle and have done so ever since, without problem. We quickly built a good working rapport with Merle who has taken it upon herself to gain a working knowledge of our own office environment (thus eliminating square pegs in round holes) as well as a high-level understanding of insurance, thus aiding and complimenting her screening process. At all times the quality and speed of service has been exemplary and Merle’s customer service ethics have further complimented the operational standards. I am therefore more than happy in offering this letter by way of recommendation. – Director
