“20/06/2013

Dear Ms. Smitten,

Referring to our previous conversation about my position at Hong Kong Limited, I have decided to inform you that I resign as your Account Manager. It was not an easy decision to make, but I believe that is the right option for me and my future career plans in Brazil. This resignation is effective on Jun 22nd.

 Working for the Company broadened my views and perspective and I have enjoyed every day working for Hong Kong Limited. Thank you very much for the experience that you have given to me, especially for the work on the company’s project of expansion in Brazil, it meant a lot for my future work as an Account Manager in that country.

I returned my parking ticket and ID to the doorman. Also, I left my new address to the logistic service in case you need to return some of my office materials. Please let me know if I should do anything else regarding my resignation.

If you have a problem finding a replacement for my job placement, I will be available at my Munich apartment until the end of June.

Sincerely,

Ricardo Marques,
