Ryan Yannelli

Chief Executive Officer

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 grandparents’ friends. His teacher who owned his own company, Bat Buddy, took an interest in Ryan and saw great promise in Ryan’s 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, what’s the secret of running Server Bays in this technology-driven, competitive environment? Ryan says, “We aren’t pushy sales people. We look at options for each potential client and don’t sell them what they don’t need. We offer a free consultation and make sure that we stay up-to-date on all technology. We aren’t going to sell what we don’t use. The technology has to be tried and trusted, and we test everything.”

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.

Anthony Milazzo

Chief Operating Officer

Anthony started teaching himself website design and programming while he was in middle school. He joined the Web Masters Club where he met Ryan Yannelli, the future president of Server Bays. In high school, he didn’t pursue this passion, but when he arrived at Suffolk County Community College, when asked what he was good at, he stated computers. He was placed in the IT program, for which he was already overqualified, and was switched to Computer Science. He had a 3.9 GPA when he transferred to SUNY at Stony Brook, which he attends now for a Bachelor of Science Degree in Applied Math and Statistics.

While attending school, his father took him to work to 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 forms and input, therefore, saving time and energy of just copying data. After a short break from this company, he returned and created a paperless file system that automated packets for installers, with a breakdown of required materials.

So, where does he want to be in 5 years??? “I intend to finish my degree, grow the company, focus on personal growth and continue learning.” When he was young, he saw barriers to owning a business or going to college. Now, he views the world differently and sees open doors and opportunity.
