I received the nicest endorsement last week from a former client, Mark Oldham of Oldham Properties. He’s a former client because I no longer employed full-time with the marketing agency through which I performed work for him.

To Whom It May Concern:

This letter is being written on behalf of Steven Stiefel.

Steven handled my various accounts while he was employed with Riverworks Marketing in Chattanooga. We owned 2 inns and 2 restaurants during his tenure there — StoneFort Inn, TerraMae, as well as Dancing Bear Lodge and Appalachian Bistro in Townsend, Tennessee.

Amongst other things, Steve wrote a ton of copy, “word-smithed” many ads, responded to complaints in the most incredibly professional manner (which we still miss to this date), brainstormed ideas, and generally was a fantastic person with whom to deal on all aspects of our marketing.

Steven was always smiling when we met face to face and was always gracious.

His even-keeled personality was perfect in business meetings. Steven was always productive and stuck to the message we wanted to articulate, and actually helped form that message.

Needless to say, I highly recommend Steven for hire. He was very professional, considerate, and was a definite asset to our account team while at Riverworks.

I know for certain he possesses all of these attributes — and More!

Wasn’t that awesome? I appreciate those kind words. I’m also very proud of all the work we did as a team to promote his brand, including website copy, eNewsletters, reputation management, writing for print pieces like brochures, photographing food and accommodations, and more!

It was a joy meeting with Mark and his people over the years. I love his properties and appreciate the high quality you can count on from Mark and his lovely wife, Sharon. I can’t wait to book my next stay at Dancing Bear Lodge and eat at their delicious restaurant.
