Sample of a Retirement Announcement Email
Subject: Retirement Announcement
I am writing to inform all of you that I have decided to retire from my professional career after having served for over 30 years.
My journey, which started as a junior executive three decades ago, has been a momentous one, and I have been blessed to see a lot of progress and make some great friends along the way.
I have been a part of this organization for the last 10 years, and I believe I have given as much back to the next generation as I could.
Now, it's time for me to move on and make way for others, who I expect will continue to serve our organization and this industry even better than I have.
I would also like to thank everyone for the support and loyalty, and if any one of you is ever in need of any assistance, please feel free to contact me.
My last day at work will be 30th June 2014.
