Los Angeles and San Jose, Capital of Silicon Valley, December 31, 2012 – The organizers of the “Fast Track to ESL Cloud Opportunities in 2013” conferences, The BPR Cloud Institute has unveiled a new program to provide accelerated learning for CompTIA cloud certification. The program also includes networking opportunities for aspiring or experienced IT professionals looking to stay ahead of global developments in cloud computing technologies and solutions. 21st century workforce development experts like Emanuel support efforts to expand the global cloud force using Silicon Valley style accelerated learning methods and technologies. Emanuel Pleitez stated “The 21st century economy is a global small business economy increasingly connected via the cloud. Los Angeles has one third of California’s small businesses focused on logistics, health care, green technologies, global trade, business services and wholesale products. Small businesses produce more patents and innovations than larger businesses according to the SBA. The accelerated cloud training program offered by the BPR Cloud Institute will improve the efficiency, competitiveness and innovation of local businesses and create new export markets for bilingual cloud sales and services for Latin America and Asia.”

Reynaldo Gil, Cloud Inventor with supply chain cloud patents ranked in the top .01% , Mobile Social Chief of ReyLabs and Director of the BPR Cloud Institute said “As an innovator, supply chain cloud expert and small business owner, I fully endorse Emanuel Pleitez’ candidacy for Mayor of Los Angeles. There are few political leaders in California with the vision, collaboration and technology skills to lead the transition to a cloud-based small business economy. The complex small business and IT services sectors of the Los Angeles economy are experiencing job creation but the growth is hampered by the lack of trained cloud business service professionals. LA’s innovative, diverse and multilingual small business community is the supply chain hub for Latin American and Asian trade. It must become the cloud-based supply chain hub. Employers and business partners demand qualified, certified business to business (B2B) sales and service personnel to fill local and export jobs. Our economy does not have years to build up a cloud workforce to support the transition. We have to retrain people faster.”

Students participating in BPR Cloud Institute programs will quickly master the concepts and obtain different levels of certification validating skills required for many business to business marketing, sales and service opportunities.

About: Emanuel Pleitez

EMANUEL PLEITEZ is a progressive Los Angeles native committed to uniting, serving, and inspiring his community. His strength and inspiration come from being raised by a single mother in the Eastside neighborhood of El Sereno—at an early age he helped his family through financial hardships and learned that the strength of a community comes from the people within it. Emanuel has always taken initiative to promote social change, and with strong moral values and limited opportunities, he founded non-profit organizations such as Latinos on the Fast Track (LOFT) Institute, and the Latino Legacy Weekend, aimed at providing opportunities and mentorship for innovative young leaders.
Emanuel’s story is familiar to many Angelenos. Son of Mexican and Salvadoran immigrant parents, born in South Central Los Angeles, and raised in an underserved and underrepresented neighborhood, Emanuel soon learned that it took hard work and academic diligence to get ahead. He earned 19 varsity letters at Woodrow Wilson High School and eventually became the first member of his family to graduate college—Stanford University—on scholarships.
Between 2003 and 2005 he twice worked for current Mayor Villaraigosa, first as a field aide in El Sereno and later as his personal assistant. He went on to learn about business at Goldman Sachs until the Obama-Biden Presidential Transition team selected him to serve as a member of the US Treasury Review team. Shortly thereafter, Emanuel ran for California’s 32nd Congressional District Special Election in 2009, with a strong grassroots campaign that engaged and energized Eastside Los Angeles voters.
This caught the eye once again of the Obama Administration, who appointed him as a special assistant to Paul Volcker and the President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board (PERAB) in 2009. Here he worked on workforce development, infrastructure financing, and tax reform programs. Emanuel was later employed by McKinsey & Company as a management consultant for a variety of industries, and most recently served as Chief Strategy Officer at Spokeo, a growing Los Angeles-based technology company.
Emanuel continues to recognize hardships in every day life, and unwaveringly commits himself to public service within and beyond Los Angeles communities. He takes an active role by serving as Board of Directors Chair for both the Hispanic Heritage Foundation and the Salvadoran American Leadership and Education Fund (SALEF), both of which identifies, promotes and prepares leaders in the Latino community. As a citizen leader for No Labels, a movement of Democrats, Republicans, and independents, he is dedicated to solving municipal problems rather than political gamesmanship.
Emanuel is the founder and executive producer of INSPIRA, an ongoing web series featuring the stories of inspiration from Latinos across the country. He and his wife, Rebecca, reside in El Sereno.
