To Whom it May Concern:

It is my pleasure to recommend Robert Sigur.

I reported directly to Robert when I was the National Sales Manager - Retail for Contessa Premium Foods.  Robert was the single most influential and key person in helping shape our sales structure, focus and needed resources and helped improve our sales and operations greatly.

From Robert's insight and leadership, we focused and expanded our sales infrastructure and item portfolio and went from a small industry with a focus on selling shrimp, into a true food products company that today is over $215 million in sales and one of the top selling brands in the seafood and frozen meals categories.

Robert is one of the most insightful people I know.  He also influenced and inspired leadership throughout the entire company and was key in identifying, teaching and motivating talent.  Robert inspired the entire company at every level. 

From a personal standpoint, he shared his knowledge and strategic insight with me which has led me to now being an equity partner at Chicken of the Sea Frozen Foods and Vice President of Sales and Marketing.  More importantly to me, even after we both left Contessa, Robert has remained a close and true friend.

Robert worked his way up from a kid in New Orleans with little to become an entry-level salesperson and years later the President of Bradshaw International, one of the largest and best brokerages in the food industry.

Again it is my pleasure to recommend Robert Sigur.  Please feel free to call me with any questions.
