David Shimberg, MBCI, CBCP—Business Continuity Consultant
"I met Manuel several months ago at a meeting of CPAC's Charlotte Chapter. Since that time Manuel has actively engaged with CPAC and most recently was a featured speaker at a CPAC meeting. His insights in to Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning were both insightful and pragmatic, leading to an extended Q&A session after he spoke. Manuel has quickly distinguished himself as a subject matter expert in our profession, and valuable resource for organizations just creating their BCP/DR program, or looking to improve it. I look forward to working with Manuel through CPAC at future events."

His scalability, flexibility, and a network of IT experts allow me to focus on other wins for the healthcare community"

We have all met and worked with IT people before, but Manuel has incredible credentials and you immediately understand his ethics and integrity. That in itself is so valuable. You can get to work on the IT issues/data risk management that you are facing and you never have to worry about the value you're receiving. That is truly powerful."

Todd Richardson—IT Manager, Wilmington Health
"Manuel Lloyd has acted in a Virtual CIO capacity for Wilmington Health and has provided invaluable leadership and strategic direction for us. He has helped perform some heavy-lifting on high-level initiatives to include storage, backup, archive, disaster recovery, and business continuity. He is very adept and up to date with new technologies, but is able to balance with excellent communication and negotiation skills with stakeholders and vendors. For this, he has been a very valuable asset to me, the IT Manager, and to Wilmington Health overall. But what sets Manuel apart is his energy and enthusiasm. I'd swear this man never sleeps, and he is always there when needed. He is able to throttle his output up or down, depending on the needs of you the customer. And it's rare to find someone with those characteristics that also has a great and congenial mentality. Manuel is doing some excellent work for us, and I'm excited to continue working with him on future projects and initiatives."

"If you want someone who understands technology and its end-to-end place in business, Manuel's your guy. He's always had three traits that are rarely found together in any one person - passion, vision, and sincerity.
Manuel takes good care of his employees, and naturally, makes you feel challenged and empowered. As a client, Manuel's attention always puts you first, he listens and ensures you're comfortable and in-the-know about every important decision.
Excellent manager of things people and process"
