Life is always full of surprises! Twists, turns, new opportunities. Just over five years ago, I joined City Insurance. I thought I would be there for a long time. Then, out of the blue, I received a contract I couldn’t refuse. Doe Insurance made me an offer to become their Regional Sales Manager. I couldn’t turn down the opportunity.
Doe Insurance is a $1 billion company with 2000 employees nationwide. Their range of products is vast and their marketing is aggressive. Just my cup of tea! My official start date is (date).
One of the things that I’ve learned in this transition is the importance of staying in touch with friends and associates. Therefore, I wanted to give you my new address and telephone number, with the hope that we can stay in touch and I can introduce you and your company to the Doe Insurance line of products.
(Give new address, phone, etc.)
Again, I want to thank you for your years of friendship and support. I will be in touch.

I have some very exciting news. As you know, I have spent the last ten years in the automobile industry. Now, it’s time for a change.
As of October 21, I will be working for Doe Financial.
Dreams really do come true!
Over the years, as I’ve worked with automobiles and customer financing, I’ve realized that working in the finance business is something I love. I love crunching the numbers and helping people get the loans they need. Now, I have the opportunity to do it full time.
I wanted you to know that if you have any need for financing, please don’t hesitate to call me.
If there is anything I can help you with, please let me know. I will give you the attention and service you would expect from a friend!
