“I'm extremely confident in our team’s ability to continue delivering outstanding service to our customers,” Luke Tuddenham said about becoming the new CEO. “We have a deep bench of highly talented people who I trust and respect, and we keep investing heavily in talent and business development so we can deliver the most innovative and cost-effective technology solutions to our customers.”

“I plan to build on the success and legacy of my father by taking the company even further in terms of its talent and service capabilities,” he added.

Luke Tuddenham has been with CPT Global since 2005, having previously gained experience in professional services following spells at Arthur Andersen and PwC. After first overseeing CPT Global’s Australian and US markets, he then became President of the Americas and Europe, leading the firm’s internationalisation strategy over the past years.

“Luke is someone who knows how CPT Global operates from the inside out and has become an inspired, effective leader. As the company heads into future, we expect to see some of CPT Global’s biggest growth yet,” said Gerry Tuddenham, who will now transition to the role of board director.

In FY2021, CPT Global booked its highest revenue since its inception, on the back of a booming market for IT services. The firm partners with leading software vendors including Atlassian, BMC, Micro Focus, Nice and Servicetrace.
