Hi Boris,

Just a quick note to say ‘Thank You’ for the invitation to your annual meeting and for the great hospitality of you and Ines! The meeting information was very helpful in understanding the results of 2017 and your goals for the company over the next 3-5 years.

Debbie thoroughly enjoyed visiting with Ines and getting to know you! It was a special evening for us.

Thanks Again!

Hello Boris,

I just wanted to drop you a note and say “Thank You” for absorbing the cost of our insurance premiums.

I expected to see a spike and absorb them myself. At my previous place of employment, we were just a number! It is so nice to work for an owner who cares about his employees to do so and offer great health insurance at an affordable price.

Cortec stuck thru it with me, and I am very grateful to work for such a top notch company and great owner!!!!

Warmest Wishes to you and your family during this holiday season!

Vanessa Thompson  @ 30/11/2017 08:11:21

Hi Boris,

Just wanted to thank you for so generously absorbing the healthcare increase this year. You actually care about the financial situation of your employees, a rare thing these days!

Wishing you and Ines all the best this holiday season,

Bibi-Ann Allard  @ 20/11/2017 09:11:48

Dear Ines and Boris, Thank you for the great dinner at Portofino. We always have fun with you. Your home is terrific, I love everything you did. Hopefully, we’ll have time to get together again before you leave on Dec. 11th.



Mike Gabor  @ 06/11/2017 09:11:22


Your comments are very much appreciated and I shared them with my team. You hold us all to very high standards and when we are successful it is great to be acknowledged.

Hello Boris,

Attached are three photos of the old warehouse. We all think it looks very nice! Your email below is filled with great news, and hopefully 2018 will be a record year for all plants. Each of us here at CST, are very thankful for the great jobs we each have within the Cortec Corporation.

Wishing you and Ines a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Boris and Ines,

Thank you so much for the cookies that were delivered today! I haven't tried it yet but will probably indulge later tonight, and I'm sure once my kids get home they will be begging me for some of them. It was very thoughtful of you to send this package, and certainly lifts my spirits to know others are thinking of me.

My recovery is getting better every day, and thank God for email and being able to work from home! Otherwise I might go crazy.

Thank you again and look forward to see you soon.

Ana Costa  @ 12/10/2017 09:10:26

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.


Edison and Rosana  @ 22/08/2017 08:08:26

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!

Kind regards, from Claude, Franck and Marc, + our 3 women totally charmed by Croatia !
