St. Vitus Day Award, which is the highest award presented by the City of Kruševac on the occasion of St. Vitus Day, has been given to Mr. Milos Nenezic, President of the Serbian Association of Employers and General Manager of Trayal Corporation, for exceptional results in work and creativity.
As a prominent businessman and holder of responsible positions in Kruševac, Miloš Nenezić has been awarded in recognition of exceptional results in the field of economy, sports and for his contribution to the development of the city.
“To be recognized and especially to be accepted in one’s own hometown is the most difficult thing. The award is not always given to the most deserving ones, and even when it is the case, it includes the efforts of many. A lot of dedicated work is on the path to success, a lot of worries, sacrifices, efforts, sweat, pleas, sleepless nights which are not usually seen on the outside, and all of that is somehow forgotten or at least suppressed when success comes, and public recognition, praise, awards are the crown of effort. Each award is a recognition for the achieved results and an incentive for the future”, Mr. Nenezic pointed out.
