It is an exciting time for the economy and culture of Buffalo. Downtown Buffalo is buzzing with life and new business as Buffalo Sabres and Buffalo Bills’ new owner, Terry Pegula’s HarborCenter hockey-themed complex opens and brings with it more development in the area! Brian and the team in Lancaster have been hard at work and report that the phones are ringing steadily at the Lancaster branch with the cooler weather bringing customers in for all of their seasonal water and municipal needs.
Brian Whitford wears quite a few hats for Vellano Corporation but that’s just another day at the office. Brian heads up the Buffalo/Lancaster office and is also the acting Vellano Corporation Western NY Regional Manager, responsible for all Vellano Corporation and Vellano activities in the Lancaster and Rochester branch areas. Brian shares his time between Lancaster and Rochester, heading down to the Rochester branch often, working closely with the newly promoted Branch Manager, Marge Wilson. Brian has two sons, ages 13 and 18. The Oldest is at Villa Maria College in Buffalo.
