Dear Colleagues,

It is with a heavy heart that I am writing this letter to you. Today is my last day at work, and I shall miss all of you. You have been great staff at the Service Department; I sincerely thank you for your great support to me during my tenure with you. You have cooperated well with me to make this Service Department of high reputation.

My stint at Promenade Tools & Products has been extremely successful only because of the fact that I was backed up by people like you. We set high targets and we managed to reach them as well. I cherish most of my time here. I have certain favourite moments too, like the time when we clinched the million dollar deal with A&U products. Our company has now reached an enviable position in the social ladder and it is upto you all to uphold the spirit of our company.

I am moving on with my career. I have decided to take over as the manager of ABC Retailers. I hope that each of you will continue to give your best to further the interest of this company while you remain in its employment. Do your best to uphold the good name of this Service Department and Company. I wish each of you the best in your future undertakings.

Thanking you

Yours Sincerely
