He has driven the use of technology and indentified future technology needs in the insurance and healthcare sectors and is committed to the continued growth of the technology community in the Midlands. Under Terry’s leadership, TM Floyd & Company led initiatives that developed into ITS-SC and the Palmetto Open Source Software Conference (POSSCON) and played a major role in locating IT-oLogy at 1301 Gervais in downtown Columbia.
