Athletic Director

May 1st, 2013

Dear Mr. Johnson —

I took a long hard look at the team you have and I believe there are significant amounts of opportunity to move the team forward. I would like to see more attendance record in terms of those buying tickets to the game. And I see opportunities to make trades and acquire new talent to direct the team further.

That's why as an Athletic Director I have been able to previously:
Be part of a turnaround where we went from a bottom percentile team to a top percentile team in 2014.
Comfortable with the recruiting efforts required to acquire coaches and players.
Comfortable managing team finances and working with a budget for a fiscal year.
Comfortable tracking ticket sales and working on team merchandise as a way to promote the team budget.

I look forward to interviewing with you. If there is any information that you'd like to see that I didn't include in my application, please feel free to contact me and I will return that to you as soon as possible. If you'd like to see a portfolio of my prior work examples, I would be happy to supply that. In addition, if there are letters of recommendation that you'd like to see which I did not include, please request them and I can supply more than five.
