Meet our Partners


CCT came into existence in November 2005 when an over-excited 15-year-old Mitch decided that he was OK at this computer thing. So he got an ABN and a business name (with his Mum because no one would let a 15 year old run a business now would they!) and started fixing friends’ computers. Then he hit a problem: a lot of friends and friends of friends started seeking his assistance.

By the time Mitch’s HSC came around, instead of studying Mitch was preparing to install PCs and a server into a doctors’ surgery. Since then, CCT has grown out of the parents’ basement and into their own office in January 2012. Along the way they’ve hired staff and solved the world’s IT problems one SME at a time.

CCT doesn’t specialise in any specific Industry. They focus on knowing where to find the specialist for each unique problem. Over the past 7 years a lot of this has rubbed off! Everything from making MYOB run fast to quoting and installing virtual servers, hosting email and generally being real people who translate IT into things that really work.

The Sally Foundation

The Sally Foundation is a philanthropic fund run by Mike and Geraldine Roche.  It is named after Geraldine’s maternal grandmother Sally, who sailed to Australia from England in the early 1900s.

 “Originally from a well-to-do family, Sally’s life was one of significant struggle in rural Queensland, and her determination, gentle ways and always seeing the best in a situation provided the inspiration for our foundation,” said Geraldine.

 Sally’s legacy is a foundation that invests in projects that help rural people become self-reliant and resilient.  For Mike and Geraldine, shared philosophies are the key to successful partnerships.  Experience has also taught them that, “…we have to do a project that the people want, not what the guy with the money thinks they want.”

Sally Foundation divides its energies between helping youth in regional and rural communities in Australia, and disadvantaged communities in Zimbabwe.

Mike and Geraldine have been exploring options for a new Australian project for Sally, and will announce a new partnership in Orange in late 2015.
