Juan Manrique
CEO & Founder

Juan Manrique worked for over 10 years at a senior executive level in the introduction of products/services within the IT and Telecoms industry. In 2005 he decided to develop a software solution to contribute to the resolution of the problems around the lack of quality in delivery of projects and eTask Technologies was born. At the beginning of 2013 he significantly increased the commercial and technological reach of eTask Technologies by orchestrating the acquisition of Hydra Management, a historic name in Portfolio and Resource management in the UK market. The merger of the two companies has created Hydra a leading organisation with unique technologies to help companies to optimally manage resources and deliver consistently successful projects.
