Mr. John Harrison
1234 Main Court
Dear Mr. Cohen:
At the suggestion of Julia Corrado, I have enclosed my résumé for your review. My consistent success in creating and establishing profitable sales and marketing strategies for business technology consulting would be an asset to XYZ Solutions. I understand that one of your priorities for this year is to improve the sales results in the Chicago market, and I would appreciate the opportunity to talk with you about how my Chicago experience can help you achieve that goal.
The primary focus of my experience has been in successful turnarounds of weak or unprofitable territories and product lines. I enjoy the prospect of researching problem areas and developing the relationships and resources needed. In my search I am targeting companies that would benefit from my ability to . . .
- Identify market opportunities in the Midwest and develop new territories for intangible services.
- Build and maintain relationships with corporate and institutional clients, from Fortune 50 to small- and medium-sized businesses.
- Consistently exceed sales quotas, winning sales and sales management competitions; establish effective business plans and budgets; and control expenses.
- Provide in-depth knowledge acquired in a variety of business environments.
You can reach me at the phone number or e-mail listed above. I look forward to discussing the challenges you face in 2004 and beyond. Thank you for your time and attention.
