I'm looking to send an introductory e-mail to a company, just thanking them for selecting us to carry out the work.

However, I am unsure to use Dear or whatever, when I do not know the actual name of anyone that works for the company. All I know is the company name, how should I proceed?

Thanks, Stuart

  • I'd suggest, "Dear [company name]" – Elian Apr 20 '16 at 13:20
  • It would be appropriate to thank whoever was identified (e.g. in the signature block) as the sender of the notice that you were selected. – Lawrence Apr 20 '16 at 13:23

    As someone who spent most of his life in business, I would suggest that if you consider it worth writing a letter, it is also probably worth making a little effort to discover the name of the best person to address. Failing that I would chose some title. In the UK it might be Managing Director, Chief Purchasing Officer or some such. Then I would begin the letter Dear Sir or Madam. – WS2 Apr 20 '16 at 16:00
