Dear Mr. Lewis,
I hereby put forward my resignation as Customer Relationship Manager, effective March 14, 2013. My last day of service with the company shall be on March 28, 2013.
I cannot express thanks enough for all that I have learned under your guidance and all the opportunities you have munificently bestowed upon me during the last five years with the company. My role as a CRM helped me to grow professional and personally.
I will always remember this company with strong fondness, contentment and pride at our accomplishments. I would not have secured this better opportunity without my experiences at ABC Private Limited.
If I can assist during the transition period, I will be more than happy to do so. I am ready to train the new appointee during the notice period.
Thank you so very much once again and I wish the ABC Private Limited a very bright future and continued progress. This has been a long ride and I am sure that these were one of my best years in my career.
