CGI profile

About CGI

CGIʼs story began in 1976 with two 26 year old entrepreneurs, Serge Godin and Andre Imbeau. The two started the company in the basement of Sergeʼs home with one client, one phone and a lot of ambition. Today, there are over 88,500 of us working across the globe delivering the IT services that matter.

When founded, “CGI” stood for “Conseillers en gestion et informatique”, which translates to “Consultants in management and information technology”. As we grew into a global company, we became known as simply CGI.

Together, CGI's professionals have built one of the leading IT and business process services companies in the world with a long track record of service excellence, innovative services and solutions, and sustainable profitable growth.
