Paul Bonaro

‘‘I was raised in Upstate New York but left the region following college.  I enjoyed each of my stops in various cities, but found that the best that these areas had to offer usually came with compromises that didn’t work with my long-term goals.   

When we were deciding what works for us, my wife and I discovered that Buffalo Niagara would offer challenging careers and great communities without many of the obstacles we faced elsewhere.  Now we are raising our family in a historic, city neighborhood and both work on some of the most exciting projects in the area.  We can truly say that we appreciate the variety that life here has to offer even more the second time around.’’
– Paul Bonaro, Yahoo! Data Center Facilities Manager, Lockport, NY

In 2010 Yahoo! opened the doors of its newest data center in Buffalo Niagara because of its low-cost and reliable power, mild climate, access to sophisticated telecommunications networks, pool of available information technology workers and lack of natural disasters. Buffalo Niagara Enterprise offers free business development services to companies looking to locate or expand in Western New York, ultimately creating success stories like Yahoo!
