Thank you Joel!

Dear Joel,

I want to thank you for all of the great things you have taught me in the business of koi . The knowledge and wisdom you have given me has been a great help and support over the last 20 years. Through your hard work and dedication the koi industry, hobby, and myself are forever changed for the better.

You have been an excellent friend, mentor and inspiration for me. You have inspired me to work toward my vision and goals with the same passion and dedication you have given to this business and hobby. You have shown me the value of honesty, sincerity and trust in this business and I believe my successes will be in part due to your support and mentor-ship.

As the new owner of Pan Intercorp I hope to take all that you have imagined to the next level. I am grateful for the opportunity to carry on the legacy you created here at Pan Intercorp.

Wishing you all the best in your retirement.


Joel Burkard & Zak Schmidt
