Dear Sir/Madam:

As a senior Operations and Systems Professional, I understand that success depends on the ability to merge the strategic with the practical, to understand needs and expectations in the corporate environment, and to communicate those needs to appropriate managers. I believe that my background and accomplishments reflect a commitment and an ability to find solutions to these challenges.

My career includes 15 years with Merrill Lynch, four of those years as First Vice President of Fund Operations, Systems and Infrastructure. More recently, I served as President of GovXcel, a specialty software firm; and as Chief Information Officer / Senior Vice President of VerticalNet, an Internet company that acquired and maintained 59 virtual scientific and engineering communities. In all positions, I was responsible for streamlining their operations.

One of my greatest strengths is hiring and developing motivated, long-term employees and building strategic teams. I have developed contacts in several industries, enabling me to work with people on all levels. Among the people I have managed are Ph.D. scientists and engineers, systems and technical professionals, and accounting personnel.

Many of my assignments have been with start-up operations. I approach my work with a strong sense of urgency, working well under pressure and change. I am a forward thinker and a team player who has a strong commitment to my people and the organizations I work for.

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to meeting with you personally so that we may discuss how I can make a positive contribution to your corporation.

Sincerely yours,

Joseph Hall
