Dear Boris Thank you for our year-end bonus, we appreciate it very much. Also we will have employees’ Christmas dinner on Dec 19th.

Hello Boris,

This is Matt Lang. I work with George Wurtz Appvion. You and I met when we visited your facility earlier this year. At lunch, I mentioned that my wife booked a cruise to The Adriatic and Croatia. We are here now and had a very nice day in Split. Tomorrow we are looking forward to Dubrovnik. The history here is amazing, especially compared to the US. You are famous here. On a walking tour, I mentioned your name and our tour guide said “yes, he was almost our President.” Many times during the rest of the tour she used the phrase “American Dream”. Thanks for promoting Croatia. The people we have met have been very good to us.

I hope you are well.

Dear Boris,

I wanted to thank you for this perfectly organised World Sales Meeting. Spending time with the Cortec family is always fruitful and a lot of fun.

As you say, Franck and I have a great challenge ahead of us. We are very much looking forward to developing our business. With the help and support of Cortec, we can achieve great things!

Your personal attention and support is also very much appreciated.

Best regards

Boris, Thank you again for the award last year.

We used your timeshare this past week. It was really nice and a great location. We chose Vegas. The last time I was there I was 19 and expecting my oldest. We were probably asleep by 1030 each night but had a really fun time. We went to the Grand Canyon and Red Rock and gambled only $20 (just to say we gambled). I can’t thank you enough for the opportunities you have given me by letting me work for your company. I will continue to work hard.

Thank you again!

Hope that all is well – just saw your paper in the MP Supplement. Read with interest and found it very informative. It is well prepared and covers interesting topics of great importance to the industry. Well done to all who contributed and captured the technical information.

Best Regards

It is a true honor to receive your Chairman’s Award. Thank you very much!

Ming Shen  @ 01/07/2019 10:07:37

Sorry I didn’t write back on your kind Chairman Award sooner—I was surprised by you kind thought and felt a bit “under deserving “.

I was thinking how to convey to the lab it’s an indication of your emphasis of importance of work the lab does. And worthy lab work is recognized.

Thanks again!

Shannon Garrow  @ 24/06/2019 09:06:10
Hi Boris,

Thank you so much for the Chairman’s Award. I have been working here for 13 years and I can from the bottom of my heart say that it was the best move I ever made. I appreciate all the years you have mentored me to help get me to where I am today, and I look forward to the future working my hardest for Cortec and you. I believe our passion for marketing makes us a great team and I know Cortec will get to the next level and hopefully soar beyond the dreams you have for it.

Why is the sky the limit when we’ve stepped on the moon!

Thank you again!

David Latzke  @ 04/06/2019 09:06:33

Thank you for the meeting today. As I mentioned when we concluded the meeting, one of the best parts of my job is getting to meet entrepreneurial business owners who excel at what they do.

Peter Begich  @ 23/05/2019 01:05:52
Thank you for wonderful autobiography you have shared and an opportunity to learn about your beginnings as an immigrant, entrepreneur, business owner and above all true Patriot along with the hard earned American Dream with many sacrifices and wonderful anecdotes that are very inspiring.

Ana & Maryza  @ 23/05/2019 10:05:07
Thank you so very much for the trip to Florida.

It was an incredible set away, we have a wonderful time!

Thank you!

Hi Boris,

Congratulations on the achievement!

This is definitely not an easy field; injury prevention and occupational safety - for a chemical manufacturer!

Best regards,

Clyde Bloyer  @ 23/05/2019 10:05:18

Congratulations on achieving this distinguished award! You have an amazing Team at Cortec to be able to garner such recognition.

Chris Taddei  @ 23/05/2019 10:05:18

Hi Boris & Ines,

Just wanted to say thank you again for the check. Your kindness is truly appreciated. I hope you have a nice Easter.

Take care

Jason Rowe  @ 11/04/2019 09:04:28

Wanted to let you know, thank you for your words the other day regarding my daughter. Thank you for the thoughts and prayers.

Have a great day and week.

Usama Jacir  @ 29/03/2019 11:03:21

Thank you Boris and Ines for your fantastic hospitality in Nashville! Boris, I always leave you with learnings and inspiration. I will update you on developments. All the best!


Brian Coles  @ 27/03/2019 01:03:53
Dear Boris,

Just thought you would like to know that I am fully retiring this week after being at work for 50 + years of which 22 have been working with Cortec. I would like to thank you personally for the friendship and support you have given me over the last 22 years it has been a great pleasure and joy working with you and knowing you. It has been especially nice to have consider myself as your friend and to have known you Mother and Father and to have felt a part of the Cortec family where I have always felt very welcome. I am sure I will miss now not being involved in the world of VpCI corrosion inhibitors but it is now time to hang up my boots.

I wish you and Innis all the best for the future for how long you decide to carry on working.

Scott Noyes  @ 07/03/2019 08:03:06

Hello Mr Boris

I just wanted to reach out to say thank you for everything you have done for me. You have provided great leadership and inspiration over the years and I have no doubt in my mind, we have made Cortec a safer place to work!

Back in 2008, we faced some hard times in the economic downturn and I remember you saying that "I have weathered many storms over the years and this time is no different." You are the smartest guy I know and you make the tough decisions for everyone else. I know you will navigate this storm as well!

I have benefited greatly as your Safety Manager and I have learned so much over last 5 years. I'm hoping to pass on the knowledge to others in the future. In the meantime if you need anything at all please let me know.

It's been a great experience overall and I wish you and Ines all the best!!


Scott Noyes  @ 02/01/2019 10:01:50
Happy New Year Boris, and Ines

I’m hoping you are both well, enjoying the holidays and looking forward to a GREAT 2019! Another successful year at Cortec behind us with many more to come. I was glad to see you both at CHQ, but glad to know you are enjoying sunny FL.

My family and I thank you so much for the generous Holiday Bonus! I immediately went out and replaced our old TV with a HUGE flat screen. We are all enjoying the football games in style even though the Vikings let us down again! Maybe we will go to the Super Bowl next year.

Again, Thank You for everything and see you next time,

Best regards,

Dear Mrs. and Mr. Mikšić,

Danijela and I were thinking what would be the best thing to write and we decided to speak right from the heart. We wanted to thank you and Mrs. Ines for giving us acknowledgment with this Božićnica gesture and made Christmas extra special this year. We felt appreciated and motivated to be even better and we are very happy to be a part of EcoCortec and Cortec family.

Have a Wonderful Christmas Season!!!!!

Danijela and Tihana with families.

Jessica Carpenter-Glanz  @ 17/12/2018 03:12:19

Boris – Thank you so much for including me in the Excellence Award this year. I will forever be grateful for the opportunities, experiences and life Cortec has provided for me and my family. I am thankful to be a part of your company.

I wish you, Ines and your family a Merry Christmas.
