What is proper etiquette on vendor hand-offs when leaving a company? What is an appropriate amount of time to notify vendors?
I may work with these vendors, or their points of contact, again in my career and want to be as professional as possible about the transition.
Honesty and transparency
BLUF as they say.
If you can, arrange a meeting (coffee, it does not have to be rigid formal) between your vendor contact(s) and the person(s) who will be taking over your role. Do introductions (there is a podcast for that), explain when you are leaving and who will be taking over. Face to face meetings are the best in my experience.
