I have known Mr. Ewan Shanks approximately 10 years and it all began with me completing high school and began job searching. At the age of 17 I was desperately in need of a job to provide for my home and I’ve applied at Giftland Office Max where Mr. Shanks, the head of Human Resources at that time, interviewed me for the Customer Service Representative position. Very professional, great ambassador for his company he found me fitted for the position and granted me the opportunity to began my career at an early age. I’ve then became a sales coordinator for the Guyana Marriott and one year later I then became the youngest manager in the Caribbean and Latin American region for the company. I’ve completed 5 years as a manager at the Guyana Marriott Hotel and now moved on to one of the largest hotel company in Guyana, the Pegasus Suites and Corporate Center as the Sales and Marketing Manager.
I believed my entire career started with that confirmation from Mr. Shanks and not forgetting the monthly check ups as I continuously rise in my title. Very grateful for his guidance and all his contributions and impact he had on my career from then to now.
I had the opportunity of meeting Mr. Ewan Shanks in his capacity as the Recruiter for a Company to which I had applied for a position.
Although I did not accept the position, my interaction with Mr. Shanks remains with me as the best experience I have had so far. I was very impressed with the level of professionalism and continued feedback he provided. Most importantly, was his willingness to actively pursue my immediate employment need for long-term career prospects.
I would highly recommend his company Excel Guyana to recruiters and job seekers alike for an excellent experience and in particular the professionalism and personality of Mr. Ewan Shanks.
