Senior Finance Analyst

Silicon Graphics

This letter is regarding John Weathington, whom I have had the pleasure of working with over six years at SGI [Silicon Graphics, Inc.]. John's responsibilities included system support for divisional finance. He is extremely professional, personal, enthusiastic and always willing to help or find an alternative solution to a problem.

For example, John helped me build various reports in Oracle, Business Objects, and Excel. When I worked on creating a pricing model for a new business, he helped me understand the logic behind the programming language, and build a Visual Basic- based pricing model in Excel. This pricing model was essential for profitabilitiy analysis, deal evaluation and competitive analysis. We also worked together on ad hoc reporting related pricing trends, historical profiles, customers, cost trends.

John not only enjoys creating reports or solving problems but also provides explanations on how the problem can be avoided or eliminated. He is very patient, always controls his emotions and is able to work under pressure with a sense of humor. He is a true team member and will be missed tremendously.
