Dear Mr. Harrell,
I was referred to you by my friend, Mr. Eldon Farlow, who works in your sales department. He thought I would make a great addition for this department, as I am highly experienced and have an excellent sales record. I hope you agree, and I have included my resume.
After our mutual contact gave me a description of what you were seeking in a Territory Manager, I knew I had to apply. I have been a successful Territory Manager for Red Bull North America and Geographic Region, for the past eight years. Every year has shown a profit over the last. My territory encompasses 12 sales professionals, and thus requires daily interaction, motivation, and leadership of these parties. I am driven by excellence, and love your company’s products.
I have attached my resume for your review. I ask that you contact me at (555)-555-5555 promptly to schedule an interview. Thanks for your time.
