Tom Golisano


Tom Golisano Brief Biography

Blase Thomas "Tom" Golisano (born November 14, 1941) is an American businessman and philanthropist. He is the founder of Paychex, the second-largest payroll processor in the United States and former co-owner (along with real estate developer Larry Quinn) of the Buffalo Sabres hockey team and of the Buffalo Bandits lacrosse team. He sold the Sabres team and its assets to multi-billionaire Terrence Pegula in February 2011. Golisano made a bid for the bankrupt Los Angeles Dodgers franchise in early 2012; his group was eventually outbid by a consortium led by Magic Johnson and Guggenheim Partners. Golisano has an associate's degree from Alfred State College.

He is a founding member of the Independence Party of New York and ran on its ticket for governor of New York in 1994, 1998 and 2002. Although never elected, his percentage of the vote increased with each election. He spent a combined $93 million on the three campaigns. By receiving more than 50,000 votes each time, Golisano brought the Independence Party an automatic ballot line for the succeeding four years. There was speculation that he would run for governor again on the Republican ticket, but announced on May 15, 2009 that he was moving to Florida to escape the tax burden in New York.
