Magellan will always have a special place in my heart. I will never forget the day [Magellan] walked into my office and taught me how to get back in the game of selling/marketing HR Carbon & Alloy Bar. We tore up the old specs and rewrote them in such a way that [we] could be globally competitive. I will always be grateful for the education you gave me during that process. And now, I can't tell you how much our team appreciates everything you do for us.
We just wanted to thank you for all you did to support [our] Foundation in 2014. We are so grateful for all you have done, and we hope you know that you have contributed in a huge way to our success. We truly couldn't have done it without you!
I used you as a case study in a teaching note to my sales team highlighting how Magellan has proactively solved a problem by assisting us in keeping the right product on the floor at the right time for our customers.
I am the fortunate recipient of the Deborah Ann Goldwater Scholarship this year. Thank you for your support in helping me pursue my dreams. With this scholarship, I have been able to truly focus on my schoolwork in addition to playwriting and solo performance, a second passion of mine that [the university] has encouraged.
Our purchasing team is very fortunate to have a willing supplier like you to enable our growth in SBQ bars. It is obvious that your team and ours have forged great personal and professional relationships which are key in our simple business.
It is always a lot of fun getting together with the folks at Magellan to spread a little holiday cheer, and recognize and remember the hard work and mutual accomplishments of our companies. Our relationship has never been stronger and we look forward to a prosperous relationship for years to come.
We personally wanted to thank you for your generous donation on behalf of our son and our entire family. We are truly grateful for your love, support and prayers, as we couldn’t get through this alone.
We deeply appreciate your support and know your gift will help further our mission to inspire and engage volunteerism throughout the community. It’s wonderful to have a partner who is so committed to helping the community in diverse ways and through wonderful organizations. We feel lucky to be among them.
I can't say enough about how impressed I am by you and your staff with how well you treat your customers. Your contributions and generosity to so many people and organizations are examples of the kindness of the human spirit. Everyone there at Magellan goes above and beyond to respond quickly and help us keep things moving on a daily basis.
Thank you so much for helping my wish come true. I can’t believe my wish happened and it’s all because of you, even though you don’t know me. My favorite part of the experience was getting to see Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah. May God shower you with blessings because you’ve become a blessing to me. THANK YOU.
When I got my cancer diagnosis, everything was very serious at home. One night Gilda’s Club called with tickets to the Chicago Bulls. They were courtside seats. I can’t explain how a two-hour game can change your whole outlook so much. My wife and I had fun again together. I couldn’t believe that somebody would give tickets that good away. The fact that someone gave this experience to use made us feel…it was priceless. What they did for us; the whole experience at Gilda’s Club is priceless.
Thank you for the opportunity to bring smiles to a very special group of people. Your generosity and compassion is really appreciated.
I have worked with many very successful partners around the world for many years. But nobody, and I truly mean nobody, has done so many good things to the world around as you do. I am proud I got to meet you and work with you.
Thanks again for all you do, for not only our kids, but for so many other worthwhile charities.
You are terrific corporate citizens and Chicago is all the richer for all you do for so very many.
Thank you for your generosity. Your big heart has allowed many youth and their families to experience wonderful events together that would be unattainable for families living in isolation and poverty.
I would like to thank you for your willingness to help our junior joint team during the Chicago tournament. Certainly, this is going to be a very valuable experience for our young players and we will also be able to compare the level of our young Czech players with the NHL juniors.
Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say 'thanks' for your help with the inventory data. The visibility is great and I hope we both get more orders because of it!
On behalf of [our] cause, please accept our heartfelt gratitude to all of you and your families for your support. The walk was this past Sunday, and we had a great turnout and received incredible generosity from Magellan and its employees. We can’t thank you enough for the continued support you’ve given to this cause over the last three years.
Thank you so much for the generous donation. We are honored to have your support for our veterans and wounded warriors as they prepare for their transition into successful careers in advanced manufacturing.
We are continually inspired by the dedication and generosity of Magellan. Thank you!!
“Thanks again for the opportunity to attend the James Beard Awards Gala, we had a fantastic time! It was such a humbling experience to be among culinary legends of the past as well as those professionals leading the industry forward today."
“I would like to express my gratitude to the Magellan Corporation and USO of Illinois team for the hospitality at the James Beard Foundation's Awards Gala. In my 21 years of service, this event was a once in a lifetime experience and I am forever grateful for the opportunity. Thank you everything you do for the Armed Forces.”
