Who we are
We help defence professionals make better and wiser decisions in the offset world.
Sourcing offset intelligence amid supply chain disruptions and a changing security environment has never been more important, nor more difficult. Our customers rely on CTO for timely, verified, and relevant information.
CTO was first published in Boston over 35 years ago by Michael Fischer, founder and CEO of DP Publications. Under Fischer’s watchful eye, CTO grew from a double-sided broadsheet to global magazine, providing unrivalled trade intelligence to defence professionals worldwide.
In 2000, CTO relocated to London under the leadership of Lindsey Shanson, whose 20-year tenure saw the release of explosive, breaking stories on offset deals and business ethics. In 2021, Shanson passed the baton to Elina Solomon, former editor-in-chief of King’s Think Tank. Our publisher, Rodrik Cave, has expanded the team across Europe and Asia.
CTO has always been privately owned and prides itself on independent, high-quality reporting. With 40 years’ worth of archives and a global contact network, CTO is the essential resource for anyone in countertrade and offset.
