Way to Go Erica!

I am writing is to share some exciting news about a student who works with us.  Erica Gonzalez distinguished herself through her sales performance and as a leader involved in the operations of our local Laredo field office, Cutco/Vector. 

As a result of her dedication, motivation and talent, Ms. Gonzalez has been promoted to Senior Field Sales Leader.  This is the sixth time she has been promoted since starting with Cutco/Vector in June of 2006. 

This honor is reserved for high achievers in our company, and is especially notable since she is currently a full time student at Texas A&M International University. I am pleased to inform you that she has reached a sales level of $20,398. As you may know, the field of direct sales requires hard work, self-discipline, a willingness to accept challenge and a high degree of personal responsibility.  Ms. Gonzalez is this type of individual.

Please accept this letter as a reflection of the quality of students that we work with from Texas A&M International University.  The objective of Cutco/Vector is to provide sales and marketing opportunities for students on your campus in an environment where they feel that they can excel.  Ms. Gonzalez is a perfect example of why we enjoy working with your students.
