    Dear sir servodidio,
    I want to tell you my concern about the way of the management on the Schiphol aireport,
    I've experience enough to know what is leadership and the consequents of wrong leadership. I also know that in U.S. leadership the manpower has an important place in the proces of the company. i also know that the aireport doesn't had a good result.
    I was working there as host, speak my 5 languages and have enough knowledge about hospitality and service, but i think, that the manager sir v. Statenhove told me in a conversation that I've shut my mouth and only has to do what he say's and so more of this words. I'm old enough (70years) and have experience enough to know how to manage leadership, but not on his way, I talked to him friendly and to the manager Benelux, after that I'm dismissed.
    I don't need to work and enjoyed my job but on his wayit dosn't work and so more of this kind of things. I'm also concerned about the competetion between the workers how many damages each one can declare at the and of the day,also at the cost of the client.
    I'm sorry but I've to tell you this because business doesn't go well on this way and more, mister Statenhove is in my opinion very autoritarian in his profession and its look like not the way of Avis.
    I'm not interested in to work again on the airport but just interested in good service and leadership.
    If you want I can explain more details to you and sorry for disturbing your time as managing director, but I didn't receveive ansewere of mister massimo in France.
    Have a nice christmas and happy new year.
