Re: Reference for Martin Tlustý

Envirosource (also known as CSI) is a company that provides turnkey facilities in both the Power Utility and the Steel Making Industry. The company is committed to providing the best possible service and value for our clients. As we both design as well as build these facilities, we are in constant need for qualified personnel who will oversee and assist in the total construction effort in accordance with design specifications, budget constraints and project schedule. Therefore, the position of Assistant Construction Manager was created.
Martin Tlustý was hired as both an interpreter and Assistant Construction Manager. Martin provided outstanding overall technical direction to our contractors on our 12 million-dollar Czech project.

Some of the key duties Martin performed are as follows:

·         Martin always assured the project was constructed in accordance with the design. When problems were identified, Martin resolved the problem quickly avoiding possible costly delays in the schedule.

·         Martin’s exceptional ability to coordinate and supervise the activities of all
our Czech sub-contractors guaranteed that project would be completed successfully.

·         Martin’s commendable performance toward the company clients, project policies, procedures, and standards were second to none.

·         Martin was also very proficient in maintaining project logs and document files, which are vitally important in coordinating erection sequencing and having back-up data available.

·         Martin was a major asset to this company always giving 110%. He would not hesitate to go out of his way (get his hands dirty) to see that the project was completed on or before schedule. Martin was on the Czech project from 1/8/97through its completion on 11/30/98. He also was appointed Construction Manager from September 14, 1998 through the completion of the work on November30, 1998. As our company had no other foreign work in the Czech region Martin was released. My personal opinion is that Martin Tlustý would be a valuable employee in whatever endeavor he is asked to perform.

If you would like to talk to me directly about Martin and his long list of abilities, please feel free to call me at (USA) 610-695-9704 anytime.

To Whom It May Concern:

I have had the privilege of knowing MARTIN TLUSTÝ for the last three years.
Martin is presently working faithfully with us as an oral translator and does an excellent job. He knows the English language extremely well. Martin also has the grammatical ability translate written materials, (literature, books, etc.) from the English language into Czech, as he has done for us in the past.

He is very faithful in his commitment to us. He is always honest in his relationships, and portrays a Christian attitude.

MARTIN TLUSTÝ has had much experience in many areas of responsibility as is portrayed on his resume. Because he seems to have the ability to comprehend and adapt to new situations quickly, and his presence is a benefit to those around him, therefore, would highly recommend him.

If there would be any further questions, feel at liberty to contact me at the number above.
