Good morning Boris,

I hope this email finds you well. I just came back from a week in Las Vegas with my husband, and I wanted to express my gratitude for this amazing week that we had in Las Vegas. Everything was exceptional and it was an experience of a life time, so thank you for your generosity. Thank you,

Good Afternoon Boris,

I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation for my family’s trip to Orlando. My daughter was awestruck with the hotel, Disney, and SeaWorld. We had an amazing time and made many lifelong memories that we will always cherish. Thank you for the opportunity to have these experiences with my family.

I have always admired what you have accomplished from the first time I met you while I was with GE. It is truly a tremendous accomplishment. I also enjoyed reading your books documenting a rather storied life. Looking forward with anticipation the path you lead us on going into the future.

Hi Boris,

Thank you for this generous Christmas bonus. I appreciate being part of your Cortec family and helping establish Cortec as the number 1 choice for corrosion protection in Canada. Thank you for the opportunity. I hope you and your family have a fantastic and safe Christmas Holiday Season Boris.

Hello Boris,

Thank you for reaching out as that means a lot to me. My family and I are doing ok. We had one tornado that was around 6 miles away but nothing that impacted us. I'm actually packing my suitcase at the moment and getting ready to head south to Corinth Mississippi for a meeting at Caterpillar in the morning. I'll be driving right past the Amazon plant that was destroyed in Edwardsville. Unfortunately that area was hit hard and has multiple casualties. Thank You again for checking in and I greatly appreciate it. And a big thank you for giving me this opportunity a year ago, as this is the most challenging and rewarding career I've ever had. My personal goal is to become your Top salesman. Hard work and dedication will be putting me in that spot. Thanks again for reaching out and building an amazing company to work for. Looking forward to the day that I get to meet you in person and actually shake your hand and tell you thank you.

Hi Boris,

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the Christmas bonus this year. In a single-income family like mine, this goes a long way, and is always sincerely appreciated. I also wanted to wish Ines, you, and Rusty a blessed Christmas and a bountiful New Year. May the coming year erase the troubles of the last few years!

Congratulations Boris!!

I am very proud to have been as one in the team that more than 20 years ago created and tested MCI technology at the Faculty of Civil Engineering in Zagreb and based on that, believed that with the proper application of MCI technology is very effective. I am very proud that MCI technology has been applied on our largest cable-stayed bridge in Croatia, with total length of 2404 and height of 98,0 metres.

Hi Boris & Ines,

Just wanted to thank you both again for the Chairman’s Award. My husband & I had a wonderful time in Vegas. Lots of sun and relaxation, that was much needed.

Thank you both! I appreciate it.

Jason Rowe  @ 06/10/2021 08:10:02

I want to thank you again for trip to Vegas, it was extremely pleasant trip away. My wife and I had so much fun out there, I included just a couple photos of one activity we did, the Observation Wheel. The photos were when we were at the top of the wheel, approx. 550 above Vegas.

The location of the hotel and the amenities were outstanding. We did a little of everything, shops, gambling, a show, lots of good food. Margaritaville continues to have outstanding food and atmosphere. We stopped there on our last trip out there, 7 years ago, and the food was awesome then as well.

From my wife and I, thank you so much for your generosity, it was a trip we didn’t realize we needed so much.

Hope you and Ines are safe and having a great week.

See you later, the next time you are back in Minnesota.

Dear Boris,

After reading last week Cortec Weekly News regarding the investments in Europe. I, myself would like to give you highly appreciation and great salute. I have been with you for about 37 years and be the eye witness to know you how you grew Cortec business until you have achieved today. You trained me and we had dinner together in a restaurant at the railway station the first time I met you.

You gave spirit to me when I was down of desperation with Hans. You asked me to do:

DON'T BREAK THE BRIDGE From there on I pushed myself to achieve it. And along 30 years I hold this commitment and only sell Cortec in Indonesia and today we did it. You honored me as ONE OF CORTEC TRUE CHAMPION is really inspired me to do more. Many times I joined your seminar and I implemented your management style, as below:

Today my management followed this way and we achieved a great deal of success. We are giving good technical solution and 24Hr ready to be asked and answered the phone. Teamwork, communication, and else. I really am happy to see the latest growing of Cortec Croatia and proud to be member of the sales team to expand the whole markets in Indonesia which are very huge. We have many successful sales in many fields: Oil and Gas, Geothermal plants, mining plants, heavy equipment manufacturers, Huge Vessel assembler, Chemical plants and else. We are very sure about this market and dare to to submit the forecast of US$ 750,000 and it could be more.

Last but not least, Pentra is very proud of you. May God bless you always.

Best Regards,

Brenda Kaelin  @ 17/08/2021 08:08:04
Hi Boris,

I would just like to take a minute and tell you THANKS so very much for this trip! So very grateful for this and am looking forward to a fun time! Hope you both are doing well!

Daniel Paskvalic  @ 11/08/2021 04:08:12

I really understand how you feel about not seeing your mother for two years now, and I hope you can hug her this month as soon as you arrive in Zagreb. Unfortunately I have not had my mother with me for several years ... but I think a lot about her and her words and advice from her.

You are absolutely right, our friendship is for our whole life. I have a true affection and loyalty towards you and an admiration for your vision for business and also for life that in many moments is my reference. I also very much want to see you again and I hope that in 2022 that will be possible.

Kindest regards
