Meet our founders:

Lisa Hamet Bernard, President

Lisa has provided technical management and operations services in commercial and government environments for more than 20 years. Over the course of her career, her experiences range from management positions of Vice President at an online journal publishing company and Deputy Project Manager at NASA to hands-on projects including complete design and implementation of 24x7 website hosting environments, project management of production server (and associated network infrastructure) relocation between data centers, and total network reengineering. Lisa is a veteran of the Cisco and UNIX world, with emphasis on Web environments and the associated LAN/WAN networks for the last decade. Her technical background includes TCP/IP networking and UNIX systems administration. She has achieved Cisco Systems’ Cisco™ Certified Network Associate (CCNA) in both Routing and Switching and Voice. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC).

Todd Bernard, Chief Technologist

Todd embodies the term “technical leadership”. From systems to traditional networks to VoIP, his more than 20 years of experience has benefited customers and staff alike.  Todd began his career in the education arena, providing UNIX systems and network design, planning and support at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC).  From there he moved to the government arena, supporting the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center network.  His knowledge and skill caught the attention of Cisco™ Gold partner Enterprise Network Systems, Inc. (later becoming part of NEC Business Network Solutions).  In the fall of 1997, Todd achieved Cisco Systems’ highest certification, Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE #3278, Router/Switch). Since then, he has been designing and implementing Cisco solutions for commercial, healthcare, and service provider customers in the mid-Atlantic region, supporting presales and building an operations team of engineers to work with him. But even as a manager, Todd stayed focused on the technical details.  Cisco’s entrance into the voice over IP marketplace in 2000 made IP Telephony the new buzzword – and brought about a change in Todd’s strategy and business focus.  His work with Cisco Unified Communications manager (since version 2.4) has provided him with the tools to properly design and implement unified communications solutions. And his systems programming experience provides the experience necessary for support and scripting IP Contact Center solutions for customers. His desire to provide customers with complete, efficient operational environments drives him to continually expand his areas of expertise.  He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Systems Management from UMBC.
