About us

Company history

Counsel Group Frankfurt was created based on the idea of offering each client custom solutions in the IT environment.

Wilhelm Treiber, former Managing Director of Roland Berger do Brasil, had a vision – holistic consultancy, which implies more than short-term solutions – and therefore, in 2000, he joined the CIO GmbH company, first as an employee, then as a co-shareholder.

In 2005, Mr. Treiber took over all the shares of what was then called CIO Management AG. Important structure modifications took place and the company was renamed CGF CounselGroupFrankfurt AG. The special approach of our company is already reflected in the name.

The first international subsidiary was CGF Asia Co. Ltd, founded in 2008, in Bangkok, Thailand. Four years later, CGF Group reached the North American continent, when CGF LLC was established in Greenville, South Carolina, USA. In 2017 took place the launch of CGF S.A. de C.V., in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. Back in Europe, in 2018, the Germany-based company opened the Romanian subsidiary and another one in Kharkiv, Ukraine – named CGF Ukraine LLC. In 2020, the organization entered the United Arab Emirates market, establishing CGF UAE.  

CGF Romania S.R.L. was founded in 2018, having less than 10 employees, who were working in the Bucharest and Timişoara offices. Today, with two more locations – Iaşi and Braşov – our company counts about 130 people.
