Name: Computer Task Group
Sector: Professional Services

    CTG was founded in 1966 by Randolph A. Marks and G. David Baer in Buffalo, New York. The new company specialized in contract programming: providing computer programmers, designers, and managers to clients looking for outside expertise to set up their own computing systems. By 1969, when CTG went public, it was one of the country's top 70 software companies. A significant evolving component was providing technical education and training services, which was unique in the industry at its inception. In the 1970s and early 80s, CTG acquired several companies and set up branch offices in 45 North American cities. It began to expand overseas in 1986, acquiring a U.K.-based software consulting firm and, in 1990, purchasing Rendeck International, a computer services firm headquartered in Amsterdam. The Rendeck acquisition extended CTG's European presence to include branches in Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, and the U.K. A relationship with IBM began to expand in 1989 and CTG became one of eight IT service firms authorized to provide national technical services to IBM in the U.S. The company continues in operation today, headquartered in Buffalo, New York.
