Sample 1:

Dear Chairman Osram,

Please let this letter serve as my resignation as Chief Technology Officer for Proper Incorporated effective September 15 2014. I have been offered the opportunity to work as a CTO for a Fortune 500 company and feel that I must take advantage of this opportunity to advance my career.

I wanted to thank you and the board for your support throughout these years. The advancements we have made together with the company’s IT needs and the integration of the entire company into a single computer platform are two of the accomplishments I will always remember.

I have taken the time to prepare briefs on everything that the board will need to know to move forward and I also plan on having extensive meetings with my staff to make sure that everything runs smoothly until a replacement can be found. I would like to take this opportunity to highly recommend Ashton Yates as my replacement. Ashton has a strong understanding of the company’s IT situation and the vision necessary to move the company forward.

If you require any further information or need more paperwork completed please feel free to contact me at 555-332-4322 or email me at I would be more than happy to do what I can to make this transition as smooth as possible.

Sincerely Yours

Harvey L. Benson”

Dear Board of Directors:

I hereby resign my position as Chief Technology Officer of ABC Industries, Inc. effective upon the appointment of my successor. It has been an honor to lead ABC Industries these past 3 years and to serve the millions of customers who use our software products all over the world. I am proud of what we have accomplished as a team on behalf of our customers and employees as we pursue the interests of the company and bring value to technology users on a global level. I am convinced that ABC will continue to be an increasingly strong force in the technology industry and will bring innovative ideas and create pioneering technologies for our customers worldwide.

It has been my great privilege to work with an exceptionally dedicated and skilled team of executives and managers who lead the most talented group of customer representatives I have ever seen in all of my years in the technology industry. I am exceedingly grateful for all of the long hours and hard work ABC’s employees have put in to boost the company from a small regional technology firm to a global industry and contender for the world’s top seller of advanced technology. These are not accomplishments a CTO makes alone. These are achievements that require a committed team of gifted, tenacious individuals who come together to work relentlessly for a common goal.

As many of you know, one of my passions is the development of alternate energy sources to provide power and fuel for vehicles, homes and industries. I believe in the future of clean energy and greatly desire to be a part of advancing this incredible technology. I am fiercely committed to finding a way to bring affordable, clean energy to every home and business in America. For this reason I have decided to accept the position of CTO with XYZ Clean Energy, a new but groundbreaking company already making great strides in the field.

It has been my pleasure to lead the team at ABC Industries. I could not have asked for a more supportive board of directors and I treasure the friendships I have cultivated with each one of you. Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your CTO these last 3 years.

With gratitude and warm regards,

Allen White
