[ Regarding Paul K. Gjenvick - Pemble & Associates and Bayport Marina ]
I worked with Paul in 1987 and 1998. There were several positions with different requirements that he filled in those years. In each position, he performed the job and worked with people extremely well.
I first became acquainted with Paul when he wasworking for the certified public accounting firm which handled our companies year-end tax and financial reporting. We were real estate developers. Paul learned about the business quickly by asking the right questions and thinking through the problems and situations of the industry.
During the time he was with the CPA firm, people in our company got to know and respect the work Paul did. We brought him into our company to handle specific projects and take some pressure off our accounting staff. Once again, with little supervision he consistently performed as an independed contractor. We purchasd new accounting software for our marine operation and hired Paul to get it online. We also asked him to slightly modify the program so it would be easier for our personnel to operate. The program was brought online and the modification completed in a remarkably short time.-

"I have had acquaintance with Paul both from an academic and professional point of view. I have found him to be an intelligent person with an intense desire to succeed. He is persistant and follows directions well. He is extremely neat in his work. In my opinion, Paul could best apply himself in an enviornment of research or theoretical applications. He needs to develop his interpersonnel relationship qualities."

"Paul was a student of mine in five classes:
- Intermediate Accounting I (B)
- Intermediate Accounting II (A)
- Cost Accounting (A)
- Acvanced Accounting (C)
- Intro to SEC (P)
Paul took principles of accounting as a freshman, and most of his upper-level courses as a sophomore. He completed the remainder of his accounting courses and interned as a junior and we haven't seen much of him this last, his senior, year. I feel it was unfortunate that Paul was taking his accounting courses early as I think he peaked during his sophomore year. I noticed a deterioration when I had him in Advanced Accounting as his grade above will show. His internship did not go as well as he hoped. Since then I think he has been sorting out where he wanted to go.
As a student in the first three courses listed above he was excellent. If anything he over-prepared, even typing some of his homework. He always attended class, participated in class sicussions, asked questions, and showed a very good attitude. He showed he was capable, showed a good grasp of accounting practice and concepts. He also has some practical accounting experience from working for his father's company."
