"I just wanted to tell you what a pleasure it's been working with you through the years! If I may be so bold as to say, it's not often you come across a person with such patience, pragmatism, and integrity in your industry. You have certainly stood out as one of the best individuals I've worked with."
"It has been a real honor to work with you, you have more than enough experience to teach and it was a pleasure to be part of your team...I hope we can meet again in the future and do not hesitate to contact me if you need something from me, it will be a pleasure work with you again."
"Working close to you and getting to know you was a great pleasure. You came in and placed the operational structure within competitions and took it to another level. We learned so much from you and I am very thankful for that."
"Personally, I will always be thankful for your trust in me. Since I met you back in 2013, I always wanted to work with you and the time we did it was a complete pleasure. Please find in me more than a Boss-employee relationship - I consider you a good friend. We share a great passion of the same sport. I really hope our lives can cross paths soon. I'm sure they will. I learned a lot from you and like I said - it was way too short because I could have kept learning more from you. You were one of the few people I have worked with that always understood what I was saying, thinking or trying to do, and I never needed to explain it in deep detail...I can tell you that...we will try to apply everything you taught us, and mostly just because it make sense..."
"Un gran profesional, pero mejor persona, cuando más lo necesitamos."

"Querido Iñaki, Me he tomado un tiempo para responder tu correo. No solo por la cantidad de compromisos y viajes sino también porque me ha llevado a reflexionar mucho de lo que me ha tocado vivir en mi carrera y como has influido positivamente en ella, siendo un ejemplo, guía y hasta mentor. Seguramente que como yo, muchos de los que hemos trabajado contigo tengan los mismos sentimientos y sensaciones. [Eres] un verdadero líder profesional con una gran visión estratégica y terrenal del impacto e implicancias de los deberes que has llevado adelante...Ten la certeza que en mi tienes un amigo, Fuerte Abrazo y hasta pronto."
National Team Manager
"Personally, I wanted to thank you for all the lessons and support you have given me and the staff, our time under your leadership has been very fruitful and we all have learned a lot from your experience and your methods. For me since we met almost 5 years ago, you have been an example and have influenced me to improve every day and apply the right procedures in our competitions and daily activities. Rest assured that your legacy will continue in our confederation, since you have touched a lot of us and all the lessons we learned from you will continue to be applied. Please remember you have a friend in me (as the movie song says) and that the office will always have its door open for you. Please keep in touch with us, we always will be a phone call or email away."
