Team Member of the Month:

James Spano, President/CEO:



 "Live as if you are going to die tomorrow. Learn as if you are going to live forever" - Mahatma Gandhi


Professional Experience:

As current President, CEO, and original founder of Buffalo Office Interiors, Jim has four decades of experience in the industry. Kicking-off his career as an office supply salesman for Ryan and Williams in the early 1970s, he soon was promoted to Vice President of Sales, after helping to establish its new office furniture division. Among his accomplishments within that position was successfully managing the company's growth from near bankruptcy to profitability. Due to this overwhelming success, he decided to pursue his own business. In 1981, Jim and his former partner established Buffalo Office Interiors, Inc. Thirty-three years later, together with his son Joe who serves as Vice President, Jim still enjoys being involved in daily operations where he empowers his team toward continued growth and the future success of the company. 


About Jim:

Jim is very involved in many civic programs. Some of his more notable accomplishments are:

  • Chairman for the Peter and Tommy Fund Pediatric Liver Foundation Golf Tournament
  • Chairman of the Advisory Council for the Small Business Association, Buffalo, NY
  • Advisor for the Law Enforcement Foundation of Western New York

When Jim is not working or volunteering, he can be found on the golf course. But with Jim, family comes first, including his wife, Kathy, their oldest son, Joe, his wife Tammy, and their two children, Joey and Sienna, and his youngest son, Jimmy. 

Our Interior Design Team Says:

"This New Year's make a resolution for your home. Re-organize or de-clutter an area that is always messy, start (or finish) a project that you have been meaning to get around to, or begin saving to make that big purchase by the end of the New Year. Amazing what you can accomplish when you set your mind to it!"

Sit, Stand, Wobble?
First we tell you to sit, and then we tell you to spend more time standing; now we want you to wobble? That's right! Our bodies are not meant to maintain static positions for long periods of time; our muscles, organs and even our minds want to stay in motion. By engaging the different parts of your body throughout the day you will feel more alert and focused, will be healthier and may even have just a little more fun at your desk!
