Our History

The CGF Counsel Group Frankfurt stands for customer-oriented solutions across the IT environment. It is part of our corporate culture at CGF to employ a counseling approach to service that enables our team of specialists to consider each customer’s requirements with a clear sense of vision and purpose before providing IT services, support and solutions.

This corporate mindset began with Wilhelm Treiber, CGF’s Managing Director today, who previously worked as Managing Director of Roland Berger do Brasil. Mr. Treiber has always believed that IT professionals must first serve as counselors...to begin the relationship by asking questions, listening and looking beyond short term problems to understand the overall scope of the customer’s needs in order to create strategic solutions that add value.

To pursue this vision, Mr. Treiber joined a start-up company, CIO GmbH in 1999, first as an employee and later as a co-partner. In 2005, he took over all shares of the company, which had been renamed CIO Management AG. As sole owner, Mr Treiber was able to establish a corporate culture that reflected his business methodology and as a result, changed the name to CGF Counsel Group Frankfurt AG.

In 2006, CGF began expanding beyond Germany and today has several international subsidiaries. The first was CGF Asia Co. Ltd, based in Bangkok. In 2012, CGF Counsel Group Frankfurt LLC, based in Greenville, South Carolina was founded. The latest member of the CGF Group is CGF S.A. de C.V., based in San Luis Potosí, Mexico. Today CGF has 120 IT counselors worldwide, all offering our customers a solution’s oriented approach to service in order to best serve their needs.
