Thanks for the time you gave xxx and me in the interviews at xxxxxxx. Your qualifications and experience were excellent. Our discussions went well. However, xxx and I have decided to move forward in the ink department with the staff currently in place. I will be more active and on site to help Jxxxxx get the policies and procedures in place with his new and experienced employees.
xxx asked me to let you know that he has high regard for your skills and experience and will keep you in mind for other positions or opportunities at xxxxxxx.
Please stay in touch Tim. It was good to get to know you.
