Bills CEO Russ Brandon named Bonadio business campaign spokesman

Buffalo Bills President and CEO Russell Brandon will be the spokesman for Bonadio & Co. LLP during its upcoming Western New York business campaign, officials announced Wednesday.

Brandon, as part of a two-year agreement, will speak on Bonadio’s behalf on strategies that go behind building a successful business team in the Buffalo area.

“When we started to develop the concept of this campaign, we couldn’t think of a better representative of a successful Buffalo business professional than Russ Brandon,” Bonadio CEO and managing partner Thomas Bonadio said in a statement.

“Russ brings a high level of integrity and a strong work ethic to his iconic business, and these are also qualities that drive our employees in Western New York and across the firm.”

The Perinton-based company, which does business as the Bonadio Group, is one of the largest CPA firms in Western New York and is Upstate New York’s largest independent provider of accounting, consulting, and financial services, company officials said.

“Sharing the same values as the Bonadio Group has helped make our relationship virtually seamless,” said Brandon, a native of East Syracuse and a graduate of St. John Fisher College in Pittsford.

“As a Bonadio client and friend for many years, I know that we both are committed to success in and for the Western New York region, and we both have solid plans to get the right results. In that spirit, I’m excited to be able to contribute to this campaign.”

The Bonadio Group merged with Gaines Kriner Elliot LLP last November to become one of Buffalo’s largest CPA firms.
