“ Thank you for presenting me with the opportunity at Reliance. Your candor and tutelage along the way was greatly appreciated. After working with you, I find it to be no surprise that your name came to me through two unrelated sources as a trusted name in recruiting for the group benefits industry. You treated me with class, humor and respect. For that I am truly appreciative.”
