To Whom It May Concern,

I write this letter of recommendation for Mich Gunderman, with great honor and with wonderful reflection of our time together at Brooks Institute. I was the Dean of Students at Brooks Institute while Mich was an instructor in the Graphic Design department of the college.

In my many years in the higher education industry, there are a few teachers, and I do mean teachers, who stand out as extremely talented, masters of their craft, dedicated to excellence, and who naturally find effective methods of teaching to their students. Mich Gunderman is one of those special teachers who has tremendous talent in not only creating amazing pieces, but is able to teach her students to find their own inner strength and talents and who shows them the path to become their own masters of their craft.

Mich is an effective communicator at any level, a strong team member and supporter of achieving the goal, secure in her knowledge of her art, skill sets recognized for excellence, creative, intuitive, a great listener, a contributor for growth and success, approachable, has integrity, and is an honor to work with. Not only is she respected for her ability and knowledge of her subject, she is a delight to work with and a pleasure to know. Well rounded and versatile, flexible, and dedicated, she is an asset for any organization. I highly recommend Mich for any position of teaching, management, creating, visionary, global thinker and strong team member.

Please feel free to contact me for additional information if you desire.

To Whom It May Concern,

Mich Gunderman worked for my company Access TCA from January 2005 until January 2013.  During that time she was employed in a dual role of creative director and account supervisor and later as the vice president of our creative department and a member of my executive team.

Mich successfully managed account and creative teams simultaneously.  She created a collaborative, cross-department model for teamwork that is the framework for how we work today.  Mich also established Access as a viable player with interactive media and she led her team to create award-winning projects in a variety of industries.

During her tenure Mich was instrumental in both increasing the profitability and revenue of a number of our largest clients.  Mich was able to accomplish this through her strengths in relationship building, strong analytical skills, diversity of expertise and constant focus on the overall profitability of the accounts.

In speaking and presenting creative concepts and business rationale to clients Mich has the ability to relate to everyone in the room.  She speaks professionally, confidently and is extremely articulate.  Her ability to respectfully and constructively address difficult topics is a skill that few people possess.  This skill set is also clearly evident in her written communications.

Mich is a diligent and hardworking individual with a broad range of skill sets and competencies from which to draw upon.  Her diverse background in creative, financial acumen, strategic perspective and dedication to her profession will certainly stand her in good stead for the future.

I would like to wish Mich every success for the future and thank her for her contributions to Access.

Kind regards,

Michael C. Yag
President & CEO

To Whom It May Concern,

It has been a pleasure working with Mich over the past several years while at Amgen. Mich has a very pragmatic, dynamic, solution-oriented and open style. She had to fluidly navigate our internal systems, build relationships and influence cross-functional teams. Though our relationship started as vendor/client colleagues, I would consider Mich an impeccable trusted advisor.

One of Mich’s strongest abilities is to listen, access a situation and then communicate options in a very concise and clear way. We worked together on the overall tradeshow and convention strategy for the Global Strategic Meeting Management department to determine what would be the best, most cutting-edge technology to communicate to the Bio Tech community. Mich and her team designed a custom modular Corporate Booth System that could be used for multiple indications and saved the company millions of dollars.

Mich has a velvet touch when it comes to defusing conflict. Many of the business segments had worked independently and had their own idea of what they wanted to do. It was more beneficial for the company if we all worked together, pulled resources and shared the cost. Mich was able to present to the teams a picture of how all the parts and pieces would work harmoniously together to increase impact and save costs.

I would strongly recommend Mich for any job that requires her ability to fairly assess complex situations with exceptional problem solving skills, attention to detail and measurable results.
