“I am writing to recommend that you consider Glen Westlund to serve as your primary consultant for your banking needs. I have known Glen Westlund for 23 years, as both a close friend, and equally importantly, as a trusted professional consultant. In his diverse career, Glen has worked in project management roles and his specialization has focused on both the banking/financial as well as the information technology industries. With these tandem concentrations, he has accumulated over 20 years of experience of increasing leadership and operational responsibilities, most recently serving as an Assistant Vice President at PNC Bank. His work at PNC focused on developing key account relationships, managing branch operations, leading major project management initiatives, while simultaneously coaching, mentoring and motivating his staff to influence their individual quality of work and achieve overall project successes.
In all my years of experience, some people stand out for their great qualities, and Glen Westlund is one of those people. He is well known for his banking and financial industry knowledge as well as his attention to detail. His work ethic, positive attitude, teamwork mentality, leadership, and ability to simplify complex challenges into achievable milestones, combine to marry pragmatism with thoroughness, and make him a pleasure to work with. For as long as I have known Glen, he has been well respected by colleagues and co-workers for being the “go-to” person for project management initiatives. It is not surprising that Glen has earned his Lean Six Sigma Black Belt (CLSSBB) and Project Management Professional (PMP) certifications and is currently earning his ITIL and CompTIA A+ certifications. These are testimonials to his rigorous, efficient and highly focused ability to manage both small and large projects in a manner which consistently ensures high quality project delivery, both on time and within budget. To me, Glen has shown that he is a positive, motivated, and seasoned leader who delivers trustworthy and reliable results.
In summary, I would heartily recommend that you hire Glen Westlund to manage your financial needs, no matter how complex your situation may be. Due to his great attitude, dedication, and focus on quality, I am certain that Glen will be a professional consultant who will add value and have a highly positive impact on your bottom line by working and advocating for your side.”
