Meet Lonnie Emard – Executive Director of IT-oLogy

By September 1, 2011 IT-oLogy Defined

Meet Lonnie Emard of IT-oLogy. Lonnie is the Executive Director of IT-oLogy which is the formation of the Consortium for Enterprise Systems Management. I met Lonnie over two years ago and have been sharing a great business relationship ever since.

My name is Bobby Rettew and I have served as IT-oLogy’s Digital Media Consultant for close to two years. Lonnie was one of the first clients I worked with while starting my business. Our partnership has been fun and exciting, telling stories surrounding the ever expanding demand in this IT Talent Pipeline.

Lonnie is passionate about IT and he is passionate about building a bright future. If you watch the video, you will learn he has a Computer Science degree and has worked for large organizations in the oil industry and also in healthcare, including BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina.

He was the visionary that brought IT-oLogy to fruition seeing the increasing demand for a growing, qualified workforce in IT. He also sees the need to communicate that working in IT is more than just programming with jobs ranging from software development, gaming, virtual reality, animation, and so much more.

Take a few minutes and watch the video. Lonnie’s passion is infectious and it is my hope that you take a chance to come to Columbia, SC and shake his hand.
