"I had the opportunity to be a member of the Device Support customer service team leadership at Cochlear Americas from 2019 to 2022 and worked with James first in the capacity of team lead, and later as his direct supervisor. During that time, he developed into a knowledgeable and confident representative helping our deaf and hard-of-hearing customers, their family members, and carers across multiple service channels including on the phone, email, and online chat services. He has proved since early on to be a reliable, pleasant, and dedicated part of the team.

During my time as his supervisor, I discussed all manner of key performance indicators with James during monthly one-on-one meetings. James took any feedback and guidance with a positive demeanor and was often among the first in the team to meet and exceed those goals. Beyond that, he always displayed a desire to improve and reached out to discuss challenging situations he had encountered just to see what he could have done to better serve our customers. The role of a Device Support team member can be extremely difficult with the variety of products and services we assist our customers with, and James has always risen to this challenge and was promoted to Senior Specialist. 

When James approached me to ask for a letter of recommendation, I was happy to be able to provide one. I believe he is an asset to the team and someone with a great future as a professional. His work ethic, attitude, and demeanor will make him a great fit for any team he is part of."
