TO: Bob Clark
FROM: Lloyd Major
DATE: Friday, January 21, 1994
I have been meeting with Sylvia Bows of CommSoft to entice her into coming to work for us. I'm sorry that you haven't been a part of the negotiations until now, but the talks have been very hush-hush. Sylvia has been at CommSoft for over two years. She was the editor of the technology section of the Chronicle from 1989-92, but you knew that already.
She has committed to work for us in the position of Vice-President in Charge of Customer Support. As this position has remained unfilled for far too long, I want every effort made to make her transition into the company as smooth and fast as possible. Ms. Bows will announce her resignation from CommSoft today. She expects that she will begin her position here February 7.
Attached please find my letter officially hiring her together with most of the pertinent data you will need. Please treat her with kid gloves. She's a find for us.
