RE: Project Superintendent

Dear Sirs,

My record is one of increased responsibility, variety in job assignments, and solid accomplishments. Just as significant are my abilities to develop rapport among colleagues, lead effective teams, and promote a professional work atmosphere.

Highlights of my background include:

Consistent track record of top performance. Throughout my professional life, I have always sought out challenging, new opportunities where I could apply my managerial and technical skills. As a Superintendent of Construction with Beazer Homes, I was recognized by my peers for my determination and efforts at The Belmonte, a 120 executive home development, and for raising the bar of workmanship and quality. My efforts led to the project being completed 27 days ahead of schedule.

Outstanding project and line management skills. I have developed a keen awareness and understanding of people from different cultures and backgrounds. Working in the construction industry for many years with diverse members of the construction trades was key to achieve this broad perspective. That experience has enabled me to quickly develop rapport with colleagues and clients alike. My strong interpersonal and customer service skills help me quickly gain trust and develop strong customer relationships.

Currently, I am seeking a position where I can continue to uphold strong capabilities and performance standards. As a member of your team, I am confident that my innovative and operations-focused approach would make a significant contribution to the continued success of your organization.

Enclosed is my resume for your review. I welcome the opportunity to discuss with you personally how my skills and strengths can best serve your firm.

Respectfully submitted,

Gary D. Raum
