Recommendation letter for promotion, Sample & Format

A Recommendation letter for promotion is written by the immediate boss for one of his subordinates to be promoted. It could be part of the company’s appraisal exercise where an outstanding employee is recommended for a promotion or there could be a vacancy in the organization that is of a higher position for an employee which the superior feels is suited to.

Dear Sir

Re: Recommendation to promote Ms. Sara Sullivan

I would like to put in my recommendation to promote Ms. Sara Sullivan as Assistant Sales Manager from her current position of Sales Executive. The promotion can be effective from February 1, 2011 after your kind consideration.

Ms. Sullivan has been with the Sales team for 3 years. She is a hardworking employee who picked up the company’s products very quickly with a good sales track record. She has met her sales target every month on the sales of mobile phones and accessories, even the latest models. She interacts very well with the customers as well as her peers.

As the company sales activities increase this year, I would require more assistance in managing the department to ensure meeting our sales target. I strongly believe and recommend Ms. Sullivan to be promoted to Assistant Sales Manager where she can contribute to the creative sales strategies and administration of the department.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details. I look forward to your approval on my recommendation of Ms. Sullivan.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely
