SPEAKERS

Keynote: Manuel D. Medina

Medina Capital

Manuel D. Medina is the founding and managing partner of Medina Capital. Medina has more than 30 years of experience as a highly successful businessman with expertise in areas including technology, finance, international business, and government contracting.

Medina was the Founder, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Terremark Worldwide, Inc., a publicly traded company on the NASDAQ exchange until April of 2011 when Terremark was acquired by Verizon Communications, Inc.

At Terremark, Medina brought his vision to deliver a comprehensive set of best-of-breed IT infrastructure services from purpose-built, carrier-neutral data center facilities to fruition. Medina began his career in 1974 as a CPA with PricewaterhouseCoopers. He founded Terremark in 1980 and undertook complex infrastructure projects throughout the United States, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Asia. Medina’s vision transformed Terremark from a commercial real estate company into a global technology leader. His track record of successfully raising funds across the entire capital structure during periods of rapid change in the macroeconomic environment was vital to Terremark’s successful growth as he raised over $1 billion for Terremark, expanded its industry leading services globally, and stewarded it through the very difficult financial environments in 2000 and 2008 to an ultimate $2 billion sale to Verizon Communications in 2011. Medina is the Founder and Chairman of the Board of the Technology Foundation of the Americas and the visionary behind the foundation’s mission to establish Miami as the technology hub of the Americas. In May 2014 the foundation hosted the inaugural eMerge Americas technology conference, the preeminent innovative thought exchange connecting global industry leaders and investors with top business executives, IT decision-makers, and innovative entrepreneurs. The event attracted more than 6,000 attendees, over 400 participating organizations, 115 innovative startup companies, and participants from over 30 countries from Europe, Asia, and the Americas. Medina has been recognized with accolades from many business and community organizations for his leadership and community service and is a frequent speaker on topics ranging from technology trends and global business to entrepreneurship. He has also served as the keynote speaker and panelist at large conferences and IT industry tradeshows. Medina’s leadership in the IT industry and insightful analysis of market trends have resulted in appearances on CNBC, Bloomberg TV and Fox Business as well as interviews with internationally recognized media outlets on topics such as the rising adoption of cloud computing, cybersecurity and the dynamics driving key government IT initiatives. Medina received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting from Florida Atlantic University.
