We understand the critical nature of maintaining quality, cost, and schedule objectives and the different resources required to assure all the different components are running and working together as they should.   Our Work Breakdown Structure approach is a decomposition of a project into logical levels where each level has a defined purpose and a specific audience.  Making sure these levels are understood and communicated is our primary goal.

We excel at integrating business with technical knowledge, not one or the other. Our team members have an average of 12-18 years of business development experience and a minimum of 15-25 years in technology.  We are analytical thinkers with a track record ranging in Software Development, Data AnalysisData Integration, Project Management, and Financial System Implementation. With the ability to work with both the business and Information Technology our Project Managers will assure your projects are on-time, on-budget, and will meet or exceed your criteria for success.

At Cumberland Irving, we provide IT Technical Resources for short-term and long-term projects.


President & CEO

Anabel Lopez, CPA, PMP

Meet the Certified Public Accountant whose goal is to take you from Excel Hell to Information Nirvana. Anabel Lopez leads the company’s Performance Management and Business Analytics team. She assures business is integrated with technical knowledge, not one or the other. She is an analytical thinker with a track record in delivering projects in Software Development, Data Analytics, Data Integration, Project Management, and Financial System Implementations.

During her career, Anabel always landed in situations that required a hybrid individual that understood both Information Technology and Business. She decided to fill that gap and left Corporate America in 2014 to start her own Technical Resource firm. The biggest difference was her team’s experience on both sides of the coin. In situations where clients were looking for expertise on a short-term or project base basis, her goal was to have Cumberland Irving be their source of knowledge and professionalism, but more importantly, provide individuals that could speak and understand two key departments in an organization: Accounting and IT.

Cumberland Irving’s goal is to provide resources that are certified and qualified, backed by deep experience and strong communication skills.

Prior to starting her own company, Anabel held positions in Corporate America as a Controller, Director of Financial Planning & Analysis, Director of Business Intelligence, and Vice President of Operations. She has a great deal of hands-on experience. Today, as a Certified IBM Analytics Consultant her experience ranges from overseeing the implementation of cloud-based modeling tools used by many small to large organizations focused on removing error-prone spreadsheets and manual processes in their planning and analysis process. As a Certified Project Manager, she assures all internal documentation and protocol are being followed while providing constant communication to all stakeholders and controlling the quality of deliverables.
