Dear Gary,

Just a quick note to let you know that I have been asked to apply for Equity Partnership by the firm.

I wanted to thank you for your excellent work. You have no doubt contributed significantly to the tremendous year that I am having and gave me the confidence and strength that I needed to feel comfortable with my business development approach, which you tailored to my needs and personality.

Speak to you soon and again thank you so much.
