Ryan was destined to own an IT company. When he was just 5 years old, he started taking apart computers that his grandparents found at garage sales. In high school, he created the name Server Bays which was inspired by the place he lived (by the bay) and a server that was up in the clouds. Thus was born the logo. During his high school years, he took a business class where he had to come up with a fake company. He used his real one and started working with some of his grandparentsâ friends. His teacher who owned his own company, Bat Buddy, took an interest in Ryan and saw great promise in Ryanâs future. He decided to pay for all of the fees involved in creating an LLC and in December 2014, Server Bays was official. During his college years, he had some paid internships and jobs that utilized his IT talents. Server Bays now is located in an office park and has 9 employees.
So, whatâs the secret of running Server Bays in this technology-driven, competitive environment? Ryan says,Â âWe arenât pushy sales people. We look at options for each potential client and donât sell them what they donât need. We offer a free consultation and make sure that we stay up-to-date on all technology. We arenât going to sell what we donât use. The technology has to be tried and trusted, and we test everything.â
He believes strongly in partnerships, and has expanded his company to include phone system installations, network solutions, computer installation, remote support, preventative care and custom software.
Anthonyâs technical experience started early on, teaching himself website design and programming while he was in school. He joined the Web Masters Club where he met Ryan Yannelli, the future president of Server Bays. Later on, in college, he joined the IT program, for which he was already experienced, and finally switched to Computer Science at SUNY at Stony Brook.
While attending school, he worked for Renewal by Anderson, where he did regular maintenance work. It was there that his talent was applied when he created a software program that would automate the customer management, therefore, saving time and energy of the employees, and increasing the profitability and efficiencyÂ of the company. He later went on to successfully apply this system to multiple franchises nationwide.
So, where does he want to be in 5 years???Â âI intend to finish my degree, grow the company, focus on personal growth and continue learning.âÂ When he was young, he saw had a vision of owning a business and going to college. Now, he continues to see the world, full of open doors, and opportunity.
