CPT was founded by Gerry Tuddenham in 1993, with a focus on providing Capacity Planning, Performance Tuning and Testing services to clients with large IBM mainframes. Those three lines of business were the core service offerings and are the basis for CPT’s name.
In 1996, the company focused on expanding these mainframe centric services into the mid-range platforms that were becoming prevalent at the time. CPT’s geographic expansion also continued through the late 1990s, with the opening of the Sydney and London offices in 1998, followed by the Canberra office in 2000.
CPT became a public company in 2000, listing on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX:CGO).
In 2001, Peter Wright, joined CPT as an Executive Director to build a new practice capability in management of IT consulting. This dual-practice model of technical and management of IT services is the foundation for the company as it is today, with a strong core of technical expertise, delivered in conjunction with services for IT management and governance.
CPT’s expansion into the North American region began in 2004, with the opening of operations in the United States. Further expansions to operations saw the opening of additional offices in Toronto and Paris in 2010.
Our growth in the overseas operations was recognized by the Victorian Government, with CPT winning the Annual Export Award for Information and Communication Technology in 2007 and again in 2012.
