To whom it may concern:

I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for Douglas Holt.  Doug worked for me in the Software Department at Newport Corporation for 1 year. He began here as Software Architect and continued to serve with increasing skill in that capacity.

During Doug's time with us I interacted frequently with him and depended on him.  Very goal oriented as well as a team player, Doug was always easygoing.  He was keenly devoted to his work, but being a real people person, he was also enjoyable to be around.

Doug demonstrated from early in his tenure that he was an exceptional software engineer. He was well organized and thrived under adversity. In many instances I placed Doug in situations that I felt only he could succeed, and he never let me down.  Almost without exception, he put the customer first; feeling as I do that the key to good business is satisfied customers.  Although these are very strong qualities that Doug possesses, his biggest strength to the software department was his ability to make everyone around him a better software engineer. 

In closing, let me say I have no hesitation in recommending Douglas Holt for any position pertaining to software development.  I feel confident he would be an asset to your organization.  If at anytime you wish to discuss my relationship with Doug Holt please feel free to contact me at 480-988-9226.
