Dear Sir

Re: Request for Promotion

I am writing to make a bold request. I would like to request your kind consideration of promoting me to the currently vacant position of Sales Manager.

It has been four months since Mr. Jimmy Myers has left the company, and his position of Sales Manager is now vacant. Many customers have been calling in to speak with the Sales Manager to close some deals. They are unwilling to speak with Sales Executive.

I believe I am qualified to take on Mr. Myers’ responsibilities as Sales Manager as I have been with the organization for more than five years. I have also assisted Mr. Myers in closing many big deals. I am familiar with all our major clients and have no issue servicing them.

I hope you will consider my promotion request favorably so that we can move Arlington Real Estate to another level in our success path.

Thank you.

Yours truly,

Judy Hubbard
