Who Is Paul Villanueva And Why Is Everyone In
Cyber Security Talking About Him?

We Are Intelligent IT Designs: The IT Team That Fights For YOU

Paul Villanueva, CEO

At Intelligent IT Designs, we know that protecting against cybercriminals requires a foundational solution – solutions designed with acumen, experience and data. While new features and apps are tantalizing, proper protection means having a solid understanding of who you are protecting and what you are protecting against. We know it’s not simply adding features and functions – security must be foundational.

We like to think of your security like building a house. You, the homeowner, might be concerned with how the kitchen or bathroom looks, but the architect (Intelligent IT Designs) is concerned about making sure the foundation can hold the load safely and not be knocked down. We won’t let you get knocked down.

For Paul Villanueva, CEO of Intelligent Designs, Security is a Way of Life

Living in the Bronx, Villanueva’s world was small. He wasn’t interested in college, so his father pushed him to get a full-time job. He found a job as a messenger for a textile design studio in Manhattan where he was surrounded by the hustle and bustle of successful creatives. He was enraptured. In those he saw around him, he saw his own potential reflected back at him. He found his vision. “I feel like some people don’t progress because they can’t see what they can aspire to. You have to have that vision. That light at the end of the tunnel has to be visible to you before you can pursue it. That’s what I was lacking. Some people become bitter or jealous by the success of others, but I admired those successful people. I was a hard worker and I thought ‘I can do that too.’”

He was quickly promoted from messenger to receptionist and eventually to Office Manager. The business was growing rapidly and Villanueva remembers strapping his Windows desktop to a cart and taking it on the subway every weekend to keep up with invoicing. He got to learn about networks and basic computer programs, but when two serendipitous events collided, Villanueva’s path was charted towards IT for good.
