Answer: A Management Representative is not a requirement in ISO 27001:2013, so you do not need a MR appointment letter for ISMS 2013. However, ISO 27001:2013 equerries the definition of roles, responsibilities and authorities related to information security and, depending upon the organization's context (e.g., size, processes complexity) it may define a role to coordinate information security (e.g., a security officer or a chief information security officer - CISO), in a job description or any other way the organization uses for responsibilities assignment.

This article will provide you further explanation about roles and responsibilities:
