This letter should serve as a testimonial and written affirmation of the personal and professional qualities and virtues of Mr. John Immitt. I have known John for twenty five years and have had the pleasure of working with him on a number of very successful high profile programs. John brings an interesting combination of skills to all of his assignments including his early career background in Architecture and his more recent successes as a Construction Executive. Further, John’s experience as a client representative in combination with his other skills gives him the unique ability to see issues from all possible perspectives.
I first met John in 1986 on an assignment for the largest advertising company in the world at that time - Saatchi & Saatchi. In short, I was given an assignment to complete the construction of 750,000 square feet of space in a new building under construction, by July 1, 1987. The July date was absolute inasmuch as we had lost our lease at 625 Madison Avenue with no override provision. We hired John’s company to do the interior build-out, John was designated Construction Project Executive, and we embarked upon a long and rewarding relationship. John’s broad knowledge of design, engineering and construction issues coupled with his sound recommendations aimed at time and cost reductions, got us to where we needed to be on July 1, 1987.
Since that first experience, I have come to know John as a man of both personal and professional integrity who will consistently produce well above expectations. It is with sincere pleasure that I recommend, without qualification, Mr. John Immitt for your consideration.

John was an instrumental part of the team working on a $6m+ build out in Rockefeller Center that I managed. The project involved complex technological issues as well as design issues. John's contributions were many however what I relied on and valued in addition to his overall knowledge was his integrity and his demeanor. John remained calm when tempers were flaring and deadlines were closing in. John offered solutions and was thorough. At the end of the project when others were moving on to the next project John was available to resolve long outstanding issues that were difficult to handle. He was a pleasure to work with and I would welcome the opportunity to work with him again.

John Immit was the Project Executive on the entire build-out of our floor at Rockefeller Center. he was intimately familiar with every phase of the job from drawings to finishing involving the use of exotic wood paneling, marble and granite floors and other custom wall materials. He made sure that the craftsmen and contractors performed to the highest standard. He handled all aspects of our project in a knowledgeable and professional manner. He was always reachable, even months after the job was completed. He promptly returned calls and resolved any issues we had. He has demonstrated a strong work ethic and exhibited a confidence in his ability that eased any apprehension we had on this very complex job.
in summary, John is a stand up kind of guy who knows of what he speaks and you can rely on his integrity and experience to get the job done. And, he loves football, even American.

John is an “old school” guy. By that I mean he demonstrates his project leadership using “old-school” values – honesty, integrity, collegiality. His knowledge is broad-based, coming from his many years of training and experience as an architect, contractor, owner’s rep and, of course, project manager. He doesn’t intimidate to get things done, but approaches a project with intelligence and an analytical mind, having respect for those at every level of the job. He is practical and very well aware of the challenges of doing work in today’s market.
