To Whom It May Concern:
From 2008 to 2009 I worked with Mr. Dabney on the 3.4 billion dollar expansion of the
Marathon Oil Refinery in Garyville, Louisiana. I found Mr. Dabney to be knowledgeable
in all aspects of construction (including civil, structural, electrical, instrumentation,
piping, and rotating equipment). Mr. Dabney consistently demonstrated that he had the
knowledge and leadership capabilities to identify potential problems and develop
effective workarounds saving the project both time and money. He earned the respect of
those who worked with him, being fair and balanced in his dealings with others.
Mr. Al Dabney is a hard worker (usually one of the first in and last out each day). He
would be an asset to any company looking for a dedicated employee with varied
construction expertise and exceptional leadership abilities.
Should you need a more detailed reference, please do not hesitate to give me a telephone
call at: 001-931-962-9063.
