Hello Boris,

I wanted to reach out and let you know that I’m thinking of you and Ines during this hurricane weather in Sarasota. Hopefully, both of you and our Cortec family in Sarasota are safe. Storms can be scary and life changing and if you need anything at all please let me know. I’m an avid boater and great with my hands incase you need someone to help down there.

A lot of fun. Today we rented a small boat and went out to the islands. Swimming and snorkeling. Leaving tomorrow morning. Thanks a lot for borrowing us the house. It’s been a fantastic week. Back to work on Monday. Hope to see you soon. Everyone sends their regards Thanks again

Fantastic stay we have had in Losinj and Nerezine! Villa Nina is superb and particularly confortable to rest from our daily and gastronomic excursions (regards from Drago in restaurant Baracuda)... We thank you very much again! Thank you as well to Ivana for her precious advisings to visit the best places...

Looking forward to seeing you soon again, we wish you a beautiful summer.
Franck, Marc, and Team

Ines and Boris,

Let me thank you once more for the opportunity to visit such beautiful place like Losinj is. Villa Nina is really something you can be proud of. Nerezine small but very friendly place. Mali Losinj and Čikat - as I have already said - it is Croatian Monaco.
We were lucky, because everything was really perfect - place, people, weather, food, sea....drinks :) what more you can wish?!
Thank you again and hope to see you soon!

Best regards

Radim and his family :)

Your presence at WSM was felt through the hugs and sadness as we learned about Nina and laughs and chuckles as we remembered the postcards from her and many of us shared our own stories of our mothers.

I’m sad for you Boris, but also inspired by how you cared so deeply for your parents and shared your success and journey with them. No doubt your Mom and Dad were proud and you filled their lives with smiles and joy.

Wishing you comfort…

Dear Boris

My deepest condolences to you for loss of your mother. Your dear Nina was so loved and was so good to everyone who knew her, a strong woman and role model for all of us. We deeply miss her, and we pray for you. May your mother's soul rest in peace.

Ming Shen  @ 17/06/2022 08:06:35

My heart aches for the passing of your mother.
Your loss and your sorrow.
When we first arrive to this world
It’s our mother who first greets us
Protects us and nurtures us
Along the way
Never give up

Never yield
Time now comes
For us to send her off to another space
With our gratitude and our sense of forever indebtedness
It’s likely a better place

A place where she stays young and vital and strong and free in eternity
A circle is complete in the universe
One of many circles
Peace and calmness descends
We were loved

We continue to love
With Ines by your side
You are loved by your Cortec family
This morning’s gathering at St Paul Hotel felt different
Without you and Ines at the head table
Quietly we send our most sincere condolences

Please be strong

We wait for you to come back
To offer our heart felt hug and love


Ming and Sean

Dear Boris and Ines,

I am very sorry for your loss.

It is also my loss and I have no words of gratitude that such a great person like Nina considered me her friend. I believe that now nothing is stopping her from walking the endless paths of heaven.

I wish you to go through this difficult period bravely.

We are with you.

Vanessa Thompson  @ 16/06/2022 10:06:53
Hi Boris,

Just heard the sad news about Nina – I’m so very sorry. Didn’t want to disturb you by calling, but know that I’m thinking of you. Please let me know if there’s anything I can do.

I’ll never forget her sweet postcards or when she and your father would plant flowers outside the building; she was such a unique and strong person!

Ivan Rogan  @ 16/06/2022 10:06:14
Boris and Ines,

Let me express my and Vesna sincere condolences on your loss. It was an honor to know Nina and be a part of her life. Ivan & Vesna

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,

Adam Ramsey  @ 06/05/2022 09:05:23
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.


Brenda Kaelin  @ 02/05/2022 02:05:16
We here at CST are very thankful for you never giving up on us, Boris! This has taken many years! Goes to show that great things can happen with determination, dedication and most of all TEAMWORK! My team and I here at Spooner are proud and thankful to be part of the Cortec family and we thank each of you for your kind words. Wishing everyone a great week ahead!

Jim Holden  @ 21/02/2022 02:02:56
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.


Anthony Price  @ 13/12/2021 08:12:55
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.

Bavarian, Behzad B  @ 13/12/2021 08:12:21

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!

God bless

Ivica Recic  @ 08/12/2021 02:12:06

Boris, I want to personally thank you for thinking of us with the bonus you shared. What a cray 2020/2021 this has been. So much uncertainty in the market but Cortec is persevering with our great team and support from the top.

Again, many thanks sir. Happy to call Cortec home.
