On behalf of my husband, Kai, and myself I just want to send you a thank you mail for allowing us to join this amazing trip in your beautiful country. We really enjoyed every moment of the trip and the guide (Ana) and the captain (Luca) both played a big role in the success of the journey.

Once again – thank you very much! Now I’m looking forward to the world Sales meeting that’s coming up soon.

Best regards,

Hi Boris,

Thanks again for the nice trip on your boat. Experience a country from the sea side is always different then by car. We were very lucky with the weather and had many great impressions from small islands and bays.

So thanks for the organization and choice of destinations.

See you in St.Paul in 3 weeks.

Dear Boris and Ines,

Thank you so much for the amazing trip to Croatia. It was really fun to travel with By Golly boat.

We had amazing days with Predrag and Kornelija. They were the perfect hosts: always with a great mood and willing to help. With them, we learned so much about your country and visited so many places that we will never forget. The experience without them wouldn't be the same.

The dinner with you and Ines in Mali Losinj was great. We appreciate the time that you spent with us and our family. We were happy to meet you.

Again, thank you for the opportunity and for the Schnapps gift.

See you in St Paul!

Edison and Rosana (and Samantha and Silvio).

Dear Boris ,

Already a few days since we came back from Croatia …

I wanted to thank you, in my name and in the name of the whole team!

We have had a tremendous week and the 1st target has been reached : to share nice moments together!

We have appreciated a lot Dijana and Stan, both always ready to help us and to please us, and very, very kind .

We knew Dijana already a bit , but I am sure it will be different from now on, in our relationship!

We even had a chance to share a meal with Ivana and Boris, in this wonderful Konoba Corrado, in Mali Losinj, serving very nice fresh fish!

We have had a lot of fun in your beautiful country!

So , thank you again and thanks to all the Cortec team who has prepared it!

We will do our best to win it again in the near future !

In the meantime, have a nice summer, our "meilleur souvenir" to Ines, and see you in September in St Paul!

Just read the MP magazine supplement for June. A lot of time and effort went into that, and what a fantastic range of coverage and data

Great job as usual from all involved


Bijan Kermani  @ 26/06/2017 09:06:10

Good morning Boris/Behzad

Just read with great interest your recent article in MP Supplement to June 2017. It is an impressive paper, well prepared and very informative with systematic approach to research and conduct. Congratulations on pulling together the publication. Well done.

Best regards

Christopher Taddei  @ 24/05/2017 09:05:20

Hi Boris,

Thanks for taking the time in your busy schedule to have lunch with me and Derek.

It’s such a pleasure working with you (and Ines and Angie).

Congratulations on building such a great company and look forward to another successful year for Cortec.

Christopher Pummill  @ 12/05/2017 09:05:57

Hi Boris

It was a pleasure to meet you at the conference and learn more about Cortec. Boris, thank you also for the American Dream book. It is always inspirational to meet and talk with business owners about how they started their companies, but your story is exceptional.

I enjoyed reading the book a lot.

I was very happy to see that despite all of the blood, sweat, and tears that went into Cortec and Croatian politics, you still found time for your other passions like cars, fishing, and skiing!

Bob Boyle  @ 08/05/2017 10:05:24


I want to thank you so much for the Cortec Excellence Award trip. We had an amazing time in the Hilton Sea World. What a great place! We spent two days at Walt Disney World, 2 hotel days at the awesome pools and ended at Sea World.

Carson (6) and Easton (3) now want to move to Florida so they can visit the animals and have a pool all the time!

I sincerely appreciate the generous award and value especially that a work performance award was a time for me to be able to reconnect with the family.

With sincere appreciation,


Michael Gonzales  @ 25/04/2017 10:04:05

Hi Boris I echo the comments of our team. We all will continue to strive for better sales and market penetration. The so called competition cannot hold a candle to your product, company, and your vision!

Thanks for all the support you’ve given us.

Warm Regards

Daniel Paskvalic  @ 04/04/2017 12:04:55

Dear Boris

Thank you very much for your special gift. A first look and reading attracted me and I already booked it to enjoy it during the weekend.

You really do not stop surprising me ... Congratulations

Thanks for the kind words. It was nice to spend time with you and Ines. The home is a masterpiece and the very finest home I have ever built!

Have a Blessed Day

Clyde Bloyer  @ 21/03/2017 08:03:31

Boris and Ines,

Thank you so much for taking the time to meet with Scott, Grant and myself this afternoon! It was such a pleasure meeting you, Ines, as The American Dream book that Boris authored speaks so much about you. I am excited to share your generous gift of Plum Bourbon with my good wife, Debbie.

Thanks once again for the opportunity to get to know you and your amazing businesses!

Have a wonderful weekend!


Michael Qiu  @ 15/03/2017 10:03:29

Enjoyed the ride immensely and appreciated the opportunity.

Just noticed that you came to the US $12 richer than myself, with net worth of $25 and nothing else. In a way we have shared not only the journey of Cortec, but also the experience of growing up in a communistic regime and trying to make it as a new and penniless immigrant.

Above all the most treasurable is the friendship and brotherhood that have grown over the years, for which I'm very grateful. Thank you !

Warmest regards,


Snjezana Mikolic  @ 30/01/2017 11:01:18

I must admit that I am proud of You and what I'm part of the team Cortec Corporation!
