Testimonial - Bb T

Jun 11, 2009

"Johnny and I worked very closely together over a number of years when he served as Executive Vice President of Anderson Hardwood Floors. My involvement with Johnny focused primarily on financial issues. The Bank found that he was a key driver in regard to business strategy, focusing on key financial measurements, acqui¬sition strategies, due diligence, and financial restructuring when required. BB&T relied on Johnny to provide an accurate depiction of financial performance, and was always satisfied with the information presented. We also understand that Johnny was responsible for building profitable financial infrastructures, teams, systems and processes, and internal controls. Our experience tells us that additional strengths include solid problem solving, decision making and communication skills. I am very comfortable with recommending Johnny in nearly any capacity. We hope you feel the same."

Tom Eller, Senior Vice President, BB&T
