  10. 10. <ul><li>“ Jeannine has worked successfully at Waddell & Reed Inc., as a supervisor and manager of Variable Products. In this capacity she was able to master a variety of products benefits, features, costs and appropriately apply this knowledge to the review of submitted applications. In this review process, she was successfully able to identify client needs, wants and objectives and relate that to the product’s submission for accuracy and suitability. She also demonstrated skills that allowed her to ‘think outside the box’ looking for less expensive, more effective or efficient alternatives to meet those same client needs and objectives. I believe Jeannine would be a valuable asset to another Financial Services company who is seeking a person in this capacity with this skill set.” </li></ul><ul><li>William J.
