Dear Michelle:

Please accept this letter as official notice of my resignation from my role as inventory manager effective Jan. 31, 2021. I am planning to move to Claremont, Calif., because my wife will be starting her Ph.D. at Pomona Collect and I am unable to continue working in New York due to this transition.

My time at Heavyweight Logistics has provided me with invaluable opportunities for my personal and professional development as I grew from an order picker to a team lead to an inventory manager. Thank you for seeing my potential and acting as a mentor as I learned about the details of the storage and distribution industry. Although I am excited to support my wife and discover new opportunities in California, I will miss working with you to process complex orders on time and lead warehouse staff. I will carry my experience at Heavyweight Logistics into my next position and beyond.

Before my departure, I will do everything I can to support our team by writing down my key responsibilities and verifying details about the upcoming inventory check. I’m happy to help train my replacement or share my insight about which of our current Inventory Clerks could help take over during this transition. If there is anything else I can do before I move, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Sincerely,

Steven”
