A Letter From CK Satyapriya: Fall 2018

A letter from our President CK Satyapriya for Fall 2018.  Each quarter the President & CEO of CTL Engineering addresses our clients and employee-owners.

Dear Valued Client,

Trust is something that is earned over time.  It is the result of one’s veracity of consistent statements and actions.

Trust can also be quickly destroyed by one’s inappropriate statements and actions, regardless of intent, just as a clay pot takes hours to make and only seconds to break.

This is true in business or personal life, too.  Without trust, it is difficult to prosper in a civil society.  You, our valued client, give CTL an opportunity to serve you by providing hard work and value to your project.  It is our goal to continue honoring that trust and providing top-notch service to you.

The veracity of the reporting, conclusions, and recommendations CTL makes is paramount to our mission.  We base conclusions on science and do not alter our findings for any situation.  It is this trust that you put upon us that inspires consistency, independence, and ethics.  CTL will never compromise on these, even at the cost of a profit.

The ethos at CTL is the trust built between our employee-owners and clients.  We are proud to have retained your trust for over 91 years and will continue for many more.

CTL continues to grow by adding new staff and new services in all of our U.S. offices and India.  As we all look forward to the coming holiday season and new year, we wish you success in your endeavors and good health.
