Dear Sir,

This is to inform you that I want to take voluntary retirement from my position as senior marketing manager, although I have 6 more years of service in the company.

It was a pleasure working with you all for the past 15 years and am humbly grateful to the organization for providing me with the opportunity to learn and grow. I believe you will respect my decision to voluntarily retire ahead of my service period, and permit me to move on with the retirement procedures. Kindly consider this formal letter date of my voluntary retirement as the beginning of my notice period of 1 month.

Thanking you.”

Ericka Cho

Marketing Manager

Richmond Printing

4938 Elm St.

Richmond, VA 23221

Dear Ms Cho:

I am submitting this letter as formal notification of my upcoming voluntary retirement. My last day at Richmond Printing will be April 13.

I am very thankful for the opportunities that I’ve enjoyed while working as a marketing associate these past 10 years. It’s been a pleasure watching the company evolve as the face of printing has changed over the past decade. I learned a great deal about customer behaviour and marketing strategies in my time working with this dynamic marketing team. It was a particular pleasure working closely with some of our longstanding clients, such as the Richmond School System and Carter General Hospital.

Please let me know how I can assist with the transition following my retirement. I would be happy to help with hiring or training my replacement. I will also be available to consult on a part-time basis as I spend more time with my family.

I plan to take my pension as a lump sum payment and cash out on the eight unused vacation days I have accumulated upon my retirement.

Thank you for the opportunity to work with Richmond Printing. I wish you all the best in the years to come!
