The Charlie Calvert “Here’s to Good Friends and New Adventures” article

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/10/14

Since this contains a list of contains from back then (20+ years ago!), I save it for future reference: [WayBack] Here’s to Good Friends and New Adventures

I would like to make a very short list of the other people at Borland who I have had the privilage of working with very closely. These people are Jason Sprenger, Xavier Pacheco, Steve Teixeira, John Kaster, Lar Mader and Rich Jones. Each of these people I worked with every day over a period of years, and they never showed me anything but the very best and most admirable human traits. I hope I am so lucky as to work with such fine people again in my life.

As for all the others, there is no way even to begin to thank them. A few of these people are Karen Giles, Lino Tadros, Steve Trefethen, Christine Ellis, Paolo Ciccone, Yolanda Davis, Blake Stone, Bruneau Babet, Dave Marancik, Anders Ohlsson, Dave Powell, Claudio Briceno, Joe Manzone, Terri Bartos, Dave Wilhelm, Andrea Ginsberg, Jason Vokes, Ludo Neveu, Martin Pamdeth, Martin Raim, Ernesto Franchini, Edwin Desouza, Zack Urlocker, Rosemary Abell, Robert Warren, Scott Bussinger, Richard Morris, Paul Beach, Jeremy McGee, Nimish Vora, Michael Swindell, Lorie Hull, Kendyll Upstrom, Kari Gallant, Allen Bauer, Josh Dahlby, Jose Rubens, John Thomas, John Williams, J.D. Hildebrand, Hizo Jozsef, Goran Kallmark, Ben Riga, George Cross, Gary Benner, Fred Felman, Erik Jakowitz, Danny Thorpe, Craig Farrell, Claudia Currie, Bill Weber, Lance Devon, Robert West, Amber Hein, Richard Kubat, Jeff Peters, Ellie Peters, Krystyna Niedzwiedzka, Kathy Berkland, Kelly Welty, Tom Lam, Nester Miranda (and Carlos!), Dana Kaufman, Pawal Ksiezyk, Jim Wright, Lori and Ellen from travel, Sergey Orlik and many others who I just don’t happen to recall right now, or who I liked very much but only met a few times.

I’m also indebted to Ray Kanopka, Mark Miller, Dick Malley, Dan Horn, Taco Oosterkamp, Bob Swart, Ann Lynnworth, Marco Cantu, Jeroen Pluimers, and many more who worked in the Borland community and brought me great joy. It’s amazing to consider how many talented and remarkable people have been drawn to this company.
