Fatta named chairman of Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus board

Angelo Fatta, new Medical Campus board chairman, has long been a part of efforts to build a life sciences economy. Robert Kirkham/Buffalo News Angelo M. Fatta, a veteran entrepreneur and community volunteer long involved in efforts to build a life sciences economy in Buffalo, has been named chairman of the board of directors of the organization that oversees the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. The board voted Thursday morning to appoint Fatta to succeed William L. Joyce, who had served since 2008 as chairman of the nonprofit umbrella organization, which represents Kaleida Health, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, the University at Buffalo and the other anchor institutions on the 120-acre Medical Campus. Fatta takes over at a time of explosive growth for the Medical Campus, where a new Childrens Hospital and UB medical school are now under construction, and where lucrative incentive programs have lured new research and business projects to the campus. Over the last 15 years, weve been building critical mass, and look at the results, Fatta said in an interview before the board vote. A point of emphasis for Fatta is creating new jobs, whether from a startup spun off from promising research, an out-of-town company drawn to the area or an existing local company encouraged to grow. So, I want to focus on that, but this is not a one-man crusade. Its bringing all of the members together of the BNMC to say, OK, how can we do this? What do you need from us? he said. A chemist by training, Fatta was co-founder and CEO of ACTS Testing Labs, the international consumer products testing company, which he sold in 1998, and of ANESCO Group, another consumer products testing laboratory with locations in Buffalo and Hong Kong that he sold earlier this year. In 2001, he co-founded and served as president of the nonprofit BuffLink, an organization meant to boost the regions life sciences economy, and he briefly was part of the Medical Campus organization when the group was formed. Fatta, 71, is deeply involved in community affairs. He currently serves as vice chairman of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, is a member of the State University of New York board of trustees and is a founder of the Fatta Foundation, which supports the welfare and development of area children. He said he was willing to get more involved in the affairs of the Medical Campus because of its importance to the region and because he had just sold off his ANESCO Group.

The Canadian Consulate, which is closing its office in Buffalo, is also selling off property. It sold 155 Nottingham Terrace in Buffalo to entrepreneur Angelo M. Fatta. Derek Gee/Buffalo News Angelo M. Fatta, entrepreneur, former chairman of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and longtime life-sciences booster in Western New York, now has something in common with the Queen of England. They both owned the same home on Nottingham Terrace at least in name. Fatta, a chemist who launched ACTS Testing Labs before selling it to a French company in 1998 and then starting the nonprofit BuffLink, paid $530,000 this month to buy 155 Nottingham Terrace in Buffalo. Fatta is the founder and former president and CEO of ACTS, a $40 million international consumer products-testing company that was based in Cheektowaga and employed 170 locally and 350 in foreign facilities before it was acquired by French quality-assurance firm Bureau Veritas. It also moved to Amherst. He later formed the biotechnology business development organization BuffLink with another entrepreneur to promote life-sciences companies and help convert research into jobs. It merged into the Buffalo Niagara Enterprise group in 2006. More recently, Fatta has been credited with helping to turn around the fortunes of the BPO, significantly improving its finances, enhancing its morale and cementing its relationship with well-regarded Music Director JoAnn Falletta. Fatta also owns a Hamburg mansion on Old Lakeshore Road, which he purchased in December 2008 for $1.8 million.
