The letter read: “Everything you have done and accomplished has led to this point. You have worked so hard on yourself, accumulating vast relevant professional experience coupled with your sterling leadership qualities, which created the necessary advantage to convince others of your potential and abilities that eminently qualified you for this well-deserved election.
“As you embark upon your new responsibilities and steer your Association to greater heights, we look forward to working closely with you to further strengthen our friendship and advance our common objective of promoting and telling brand stories.”
