Anniversary celebration


Friday night, May 9th, was Gala Night in Prague for the CN Group. One hundred and sixty five shareholders, customers, present and past employees gathered at Prague’s spectacular Art Nouveau Francouzská Restaurant to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the founding in January 1994 of the first company of the Group, CN Resources International (CZ).

Guests came from Prague, at least six EU countries, and as far as Japan, to enjoy an evening that reflected both the relaxed Scandinavian style that characterised CN Group from the start, and the warm friendliness of the Czech and Slovak people. It also demonstrated the close relationship CN Group has with its customers, for many of them came to enjoy this important milestone, including representatives from Anritsu, Commerzbank, Gorkana, iForce, Interflex, KB and Stenaline.

Ten years ago, in the same venue, CN Group celebrated its 10th anniversary. Then there were just over 100 staff and a small roster of well-known international customers. Today the Group employs over 240 people in the Czech and Slovak Republics, and serves more than 60 customers in Finance, Aviation, Telecoms, E-Commerce, Mobile and Embedded apps, and Medical domains. It is an important export success story for its home countries, 93% of its turnover represented by sales of services to Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Scandinavia and the UK.

The sparkling Anniversary evening started with a toast in appropriately sparkling wine and continued with a gourmet dinner that impressed even the guests from Denmark and France, countries famed for their culinary excellence! It ended with dancing to a live swing band. Along the way, there were brief and witty speeches, and a performance from CN’s own staff tribute band. At the end of the evening, everyone left looking forward to another 20 years of contributing to the prosperity of CN groups customers, shareholders and staff.
