Dear Mr./Ms. Last Name:

The purpose of this letter is to announce my resignation from Company Name, effective two weeks from this date.

This was not an easy decision to make, on my part. The past 10 years have been very rewarding. I've enjoyed working for you and managing a very successful team dedicated to a quality manufactured product delivered on time.

I have accepted a position as VP, Manufacturing for Land Lubber Industries in Watertown, West Virginia. This opportunity gives me the chance to grow professionally and we will only be a few miles from our families.

I wish you and the company all the best. I do hope our paths cross again in the future.

Sincerely,

Your Signature (hard copy letter)

Your Typed Name
