Husband and wife team Jamie Rodriguez and Carmen Parra of CMIT Solutions of Dallas – White Rock and Highland Park are living the American Dream. Rodriguez immigrated to the U.S. from Colombia with his parents when he was 4, while Parra was born into entrepreneurship, dedicating her life to making a positive difference in her community. Now, the franchisee couple adds their value to the world of information technology with a new CMIT Solutions location.

Parra brings more than 20 years of experience in business management to her role as president of CMIT Solutions of Dallas – White Rock and Highland Park. She previously coached physicians and managers in both strategy and the best practices to grow their business. Rodriguez, who’s always been drawn to helping people, now serves as chief technology officer of their location. Their combined interests and talents led the couple to discover CMIT Solutions as an industry-leading opportunity that would help them deliver effective IT solutions to small and medium-sized businesses.

Rodriguez especially enjoys solving complex problems and “figuring out how to make the impossible possible,” an essential attitude for smaller businesses that can find themselves vulnerable to IT disasters. Today, Rodriguez boasts more than a decade of specialization in information security and risk management. However, he finds the most value in his ability to translate technical jargon into simple English for his clients, a skill that empowers small and medium-sized business owners to focus on growing their businesses rather than worrying about IT. “My career-defining moment was when I experienced an IT technician provide a manager with nonsensical jargon to explain away a problem,” Rodriguez says. “I decided then I would always maintain my technical edge as I moved forward in my career.”

“Our team is passionate about helping you focus on your business while we worry about IT,” Rodriguez continues. “We leverage our own vast experience, combined with 1000-plus CMIT experts across the country, to get you the right solution, proactively reducing your level of risk and preventing future issues. We combine the local community service you deserve with the technological knowledge and depth of a nationwide firm. If you feel like that manager getting a lot of jargon and no real solutions from your IT technician, we are here to help.”

While technology is one of the most critical aspects of running a successful business, it’s often one of the least understood. When it comes to cybersecurity, small to medium-sized businesses aren’t always equipped with the resources they need. With CMIT Solutions and franchise partners like Parra and Rodriguez, networks are defended, data is protected, and tech-related headaches are alleviated with ease.

“I have been fortunate enough to achieve my childhood American Dream,” Rodriguez says. “Now I want to leverage my experience to help you achieve yours.”
