Boris, I'm sad to hear this happened and really appreciate your loyalty and business through all these years.

Boris owns a wonderful company in Cortec Corporation that is an important client in our St. Paul Commercial Banking division.

Thank you.

That's fantastic to see Cortec included in this list, Boris. You've done a wonderful job creating such a well-respected company in the industry.

Dear Boris and Ines,

So sorry to hear this sad news. Please accept my sincere sympathy. Munchkin was special. I will never forget our time together, especially flying back from Vancouver, with Munchkin housed snugly and safely under the seat in front of me, housed in her little carrier with wheels. She was so well behaved! The last time I watched her was when she stayed with us in Brule, WI. I was married to Carl at the time, and at night she crawled into bed with us and wrapped herself around the top of Carl's head, perfectly at home! I hope your memories of her provide some comfort going forward.

With deepest sympathy,


Chris Taddei  @ 18/05/2020 08:05:39

Thanks for the update, Boris. That is wonderful news, especially with all the virus/economic issues going on.

Have a nice weekend,

Dear Boris,

I am glad I could be of help to Nina. Nina doesn’t need much and I am happy to be there for her. I am very touched by your words; I feel very blessed and lucky to have been given the opportunity to work with you personally and in an organization like Cortec where I was able to grow, learn and enjoy my work! You have been more than kind to me and my family, from the first day we came to Minnesota! Lot of great memories we created together. Hope these hard times will be over soon, for all of us to continue working and living normally...

Thank you again, wishing good health to you and Ines,


Jay Zhang  @ 27/03/2020 04:03:39
Hi, Boris.

As you might have learned that I have resigned. This personal note expresses my sincere thanks to you for Cortec and its platform with which I spent four years of professional career.

Here, I met and worked with many great people, not only in the US but around the world as well. Together, we created value for the company and customers. It has been a great journey and the memories will last for the lifetime. I am 100% certain that I will continue to see corrosions around me and if a solution is needed, Cortec definitely is the place to call.

I copied Michael on this email because all three of us have one thing in common - we are all first generation immigrants to US. We came to this great country with a dream and we find happiness in pursuing and living the dream. I am totally inspired by how you and Michael fought against the odds in the old countries, captured the opportunity and became as successful as you are today.

I wish you, your family, all your loved ones, our team and Cortec the best, especially during this uncertain and trying time.

Most gratefully and sincerely,


JoAnn Frekot  @ 11/02/2020 10:02:27

Boris, thank you so much for the Chairman’s Award trip. We just returned from a delightful time in Las Vegas. Walking “the strip” was a unique experience, but we spent most of our time on the hiking trails within an hour of Las Vegas. They were spectacular!

The condo accommodations were top-notch and we also enjoyed exceptional meals – Egyptian, Mexican, Italian and Mediterranean among them.

We also had the opportunity to visit the World of Concrete exhibit and the Cortec booth. So interesting to learn even more about our products and the market in which we operate.

Thanks again, Boris. I truly appreciate it.


Francisco  @ 07/02/2020 09:02:29

Dear Boris,

Malena, my son Carlos and me, were surprised by these magnificent suits. We are truly enjoying the comfortability and beautiful sight. Thank you very much for this amazing prize!

Best regards
