Subject: Retirement Announcement for [Chris James]

This email comes with mixed feelings as we announce the retirement of one of our employees. [Chris James] has been our [Senior Sales Manager] for [twenty seven years], and he has decided that the time has come to retire. 

[Chris] began his journey with us twenty seven years ago as a simple [cashier] at the front of the store. He slowly, but surely worked his way up to [sales manager].

Eventually [Chris] was promoted to [Senior Sales Manager], where he was worked for the last twenty years. [Chris] started out a shy and timid employee, and has grown into a well-loved and appreciated member of our sales team. 

[Chris] has helped the sales department exceed in several areas. Additionally, he has helped train several staff members, passing his vast knowledge onto other employees. 

There will be a retirement party held for [Chris] next weekend, and separate emails will be sent out to everyone. You may RSVP in the front office if you would like to attend. 

[Chris James] has contributed twenty seven years of experience to this company, and his achievements will not be forgotten. Please join me in wishing him the best in the next steps of his journey.


[Jim Reed] [CEO]
