Today, I announced my departure from my current employer, a large accounting/consulting firm. Included with this posting you will find the text of my farewell email. I’m really excited to be starting with my new employer, but will also miss the people I’ve worked with for the past 4+ years. Reactions were mixed with people happy for the opportunity that I have and sad to see me leave. I am really glad I got the opportunities and experiences that I did. It really was the people at the firm that made all the difference for me.
Note: Slight edits were made to protect the identity of my former and future employer.
After 4+ years of being with the firm, I am announcing that my last day will be January 9th, 2009. I will be taking an opportunity with healthcare company in their information risk management group. I’m looking forward to this new opportunity and the challenges that it will present.
The decision to leave the firm was not easy to make. I think the things that made it hard for me to leave the firm are the people that I worked with and the experiences that I gained. I have had the privilege of working with so many smart people that are willing to share knowledge and help me develop. Thank you for letting me learn from you over the past 4 years.

Good luck in the pursuit of your goals and please stay in touch.
