The Story behind CCI
CCI was incorporated in 1994 while its founder Arshia Tayyab was still at College. Tayyab finished high school and was in Germany when she was accepted to Medical College and decided to not go, as it would tie her “8 to 5” in a hospital with patients. She changed her major to Computer Science, and her first class was from a professor who worked for NASA.
When Tayyab moved to the United States from Germany, she realized that she was far ahead of any American in her college. It was then that she incorporated CCI. CCI has been a 100% virtual company since its inception. CCI’s internal team works remotely and the CCI external team works at customer sites.
CCI is a dream come true for her as it has allowed her to be in over 100+ countries and all 7 continents and realize her passion of learning through travel. She is a member of the Most Traveled People and the Traveler’s Century Clubs.
