Praise & Appreciation from some of our many clients
Just a quick note to express my thanks to and admiration of one of your team members, Joe Giannola.
Last night, laden with Christmas shopping bags, I raced from Manhattan to Lowery Liquors in Sunnyside, Queens to make the 5p.m. deadline for the Jack Daniels engraving event- an event that I've taken advantage of every year since they began offering it.
And over the years, I've bought engraved bottles for everyone from my doorman to my doctors to my French brother-in-law in Annecy, France. And each time, my husband (who is also French and hails from the City of Light) has been with me, but we had never gotten one for him.
This Christmas, however, my husband will have a beautiful bottle of Woodford Reserve waiting for him under his N.Y. tree, thanks to the kindness and patience of Joe Giannola.
I won't recount all of the details here, but please know that there was a huge line of customers waiting for the engraving and they (we) all seemed to appear just a few minutes before "closing time".
Joe managed all of us- and the engraving process- with great aplomb, professional courtesy, personal kindness and good humor. I was so impressed by his calm manner and his wonderful ability to juggle the orders, the machine, the repeated questions and the clamoring customers amid the deadline, the tiny space and the overall hubbub of the shop.
He engaged us in conversation while working, making small talk with an older dental assistant, a big Russian guy who bought quite a few bottles, two young, hip couples and me, a business manager. He even gave us a quick primer on the new engraving machine and the accompanying laser technology, and told us a little bit about the Hart Agency and its mission. (In addition, he showed great dexterity in typing my engraving message in French!)
In my humble estimation as a former Recruiting Director for Goldman Sachs, I think Joe should be out there pitching your brand to both your existing client base and your prospective one. He's supremely poised and talented and evidently comes by his people skills naturally. Overall, he is just a terrific spokesperson for your business.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you will pass along my words of appreciation to Joe. Happy Holidays to you and yours.
