Corporate History

CTP’s roots are in the export control and nonproliferation domains.  The company was founded in 1993 by Tom Fergus, a former licensing engineer with the Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Export Administration (BXA), and Dale Barone, BXA’s former director of Management Information Systems, who joined shortly thereafter. Under their leadership, CTP immediately won contracts supporting the “Nunn-Lugar” Cooperative Threat Reduction (CTR) program. The company has grown organically over the last three decades to support multiple U.S. government agencies on a broad spectrum of international technical assistance programs. In addition, CTP assists private sector clients with a variety of export control compliance services.
