COVER LETTER: To Whom It May Concern, Subject: Reference for Mr. Robert Carr I have worked with Robert Carr across a number of roles and relationships over the past 15 years and I am pleased to provide this reference in connection with any relevant work opportunities that may arise. My first experience with Mr. Carr was when I was at Alstom Transportation, as Project Director, in two roles reporting to me on a major project for 1662 New York City Transit R160 subway cars. Mr. Carr was initially in the role of Procurement Manager and subsequently moved into a Project Management role where his responsibilities also included the R142 car propulsion equipment subcontract with Bombardier Transportation. In both of these demanding positions, Mr. Carr was successful, drawing on his action-oriented and common sense approach to problem solving. Although at times Mr. Carr strongly challenged his teams to meet the goals and objectives that were set, he had a personality and leadership style that could inspire people to follow his lead and strive for the targets he aimed to achieve. After a period of time spent in China and Mexico, Mr. Carr returned to the USA, still with Alstom, and we again worked together closely when he was in the role of Project Manager and I was Vice President & Customer Director and I found the experience he had gained outside of the US had further enhanced his skills and abilities. In recent years, in his role as Project Director at Wabco, l encountered Mr. Carr when I was Executive Vice President at Kawasaki Rail Car, and I witnessed him from a Customers perspective. In that capacity I again saw his action-oriented approach to project management and also his customer focus, striving to find ways to achieve Wabco commitments and to solve problems without compromising customer needs. His personality was again helpful in gaining a good working relationship with customer contacts he worked with at Kawasaki. Mr. Carr has a very solid background in project management and also in procurement and supply chain management. His approach to business is characterized by his action oriented and customer focused problem solving style and I am confident that he can provide a valuable contribution in any organization that is seeking candidates to fill a results oriented role.
