The Business Page

Welcome to the business page, a blog where I'll take you behind the scenes of greater Rochester's fast-changing economy. My name is Ben Rand, and I intend to introduce you to some of the personalities, concepts and events that make news in business here. I've been a business reporter for eight years in Rochester and a journalist for 18, working in four states. I grew up in Pittsford, but moved away after college for about a decade. My wife and I live in Irondequoit with our two children.

Entrepreneurial Zinger

Quote of the day:

"It's amazing what you can get somebody to say about you for $13 million. I
don't know if I can afford any more accolades."

- Livingston County entrepreneur Phil Saunders, following an effusive introduction by Rochester Institute of Technology President Albert Simone. Saunders, a pioneer in the truck stop industry, announced Tuesday he's donating $13 million to RIT's College of Business.
