CT Corp is a rapidly growing, diversified Indonesian-based holding company that is active in several industries. The group is divided into three main business holding operations concentrating in Financial Services, Media, Lifestyle & Entertainment, and Natural Resources. The group has established strongly-positioned companies in the consumer market, such as: Bank Mega, Bank Mega Syariah, Mega Life, Trans TV, Trans 7, Trans Fashion, and Transmart.
The group was founded in 1987 by the chairman and principal shareholder Mr. Chairul Tanjung under the name of Para Group. The business started originally in the manufacturing of footwear for export and roof tiles for the domestic housing industry. From 1995 onwards, the group expanded into new business sectors in the area of financial services, property and multimedia. It is within this period that the group gained scale and depth in respective industries and to build a solid foundation for future growth.
In 2006 - 2007, CT Corp was one of the fastest growing business conglomerates in Indonesia through aggressive acquisitions and organic growth of its core businesses. Two of the group's many achievements in 2007: Bank Mega experienced the highest growth in net income and credit cards amongst any Indonesian banks, and the two television stations - Trans TV and Trans 7, generated the profits that equaled the profits of the rest of the industry. CT Corp credited this outstanding overall growth to synergies between the group's companies and efficient operational control that is embedded uniformly in the culture of the group.
In 2008, the Para Group was rebranded to become CT Corp. It is a brand that embeds Mr. Chairul Tanjung's name and character - essentially evoking values of optimism and exemplary leadership for the future. In addition, this was a strategic step to reposition the group as a multi-national company, ready to expand into the region and other parts of the globe. Looking towards the future, CT Corp is committed to continued growth. The group will continue to develop innovative products and services which will provide more value to customer, attract quality professionals and business experts, as well as establish strategic partnerships with investors both in Indonesia and internationally.See more
