The person was working on senior level but i was not directly reporting to him. Could you please confirm if i can use him for the verification.
The idea of the mandatory supporter is that it must be someone who can verify the statements you are making in your application and knows your work intimately enough to be able to provide supporting comments of his/her own. If you are providing evidence from your work with your current employer then a supporter from your previous employer is not in a position to verify it. Similarly if you are providing evidence from your work with your previous employer then a supporter from your surrent employer is not in a position to verify it. In such a situation you probably need (at least) two supporters, one to cover each period.
