Paul Mancuso has a passion for helping others through the use of technology. His mission in business, as in life, is to empower people to become their very best. And when people and organizations take advantage of the ever-changing landscape of technology, with increased efficiency and cost-saving measures, they can’t help but find themselves better.
Paul has been active in the broad world of IT for his entire career. In the 1990’s, he and his business partners (Steve Schaaf and Micah Willis) started Computer F/x with the goal of helping churches to utilize technology to enhance their ministries. In late 1999, they began the conceptualization and development of products geared toward churches with their end users in mind. To date, Computer F/x has maintained a successful core group of customers for whom they serve as their “IT Department” – several of which are some of the largest churches in the Acadiana area. Overall, they support more than 500 computers and 20 servers. In addition to his work through Computer F/x, Paul also served as the System Administrator for Francis Drilling Fluids, supporting over 300 computers and 15 servers and overseeing the entire network including phone system integration.
Paul excels in the field of network and systems integration, as well as managing corporate networks. He specializes in finding better, more efficient, and more creative ways of accomplishing goals, which frequently also prove to be more cost-effective. Clients rely heavily upon Paul’s problem-solving skills, which are oftentimes superior because of his composite experience in such a wide range of fields. Because Paul possesses such an extensive scope of knowledge in various areas of technology, he is often able to make recommendations for using technology more to the organization’s advantage, and can assist in developing new systems when the need arises.
Paul is passionate about the fast-paced changes in the IT world. “I love the industry because you can never stop learning. If you stop learning, your career is effectively over.” Paul is extremely motivated by the challenge of helping to redirect the course of an organization through the proper use of technology, and he takes great satisfaction in helping them save money in the process.
In addition to all of the good he brings to the IT aspects of organizations, Paul is also an irreplaceable treasure to his church and spiritual family, and is the epitome of a Godly man in his home. He and his wife, Misty, have been married for over 10 years, and have two beautiful sons (Landon is 10, and Greyson is 4). Paul was raised in church from a very early age, and having a heart for the house of God is a value he is working to instill in his children as well. His family attends Our Savior’s Church, where he serves as the head Sound Engineer for his campus. You can often find him in the sound booth during midweek or weekend services, where the value he adds to the quality of the services is unparalleled.
It does not require spending very much time in Paul’s presence, before you realize that God and people matter the most to him. He never passes up the opportunity to help others, and his wife and children mean the world to him. He selflessly goes out of his way to serve those in need, and because of his heart for others, the integrity with which he conducts every aspect of his life, and the wealth of knowledge and experience he brings to the table, any organization will be privileged to partner with him in their endeavors.
