A company leader who is stepping down from their role due to health concerns can use this letter to express appreciation and regret.
I promised to lead this amazing team as long as I was physically able. Regrettably, due to the escalation of my illness, I have made the difficult decision to step down.
I am so very proud of the work that we have done here, especially amid the changes our industry has seen in the last few years alone. We are not only seeing record revenue, but we’ve managed our growth in a way that respects our Earth and hasn’t required us to sacrifice precious time with our families.
I would like to thank all of your support, both professionally and personally. I know that this company and all of you will go on to do great things!
