Montante named 24th President of the Buffalo Renaissance Foundation


In January at the Board’s Annual Meeting, Michael J. Montante, Vice President of Uniland Development Company was named the 24th President of the Foundation. Montante has served as Chair of the Appropriations Committee for many years and as Vice President to outgoing President James F. Dentinger for the past two years.

“I am honored to lead such a prestigious Foundation such as the Buffalo Renaissance and look forward to continue to drive this group forward with our message of positive thinking and positive change. The city of Buffalo’s renaissance is before us, and our group is committed to moving our community forward.”

Montante will lead the Renaissance Foundation for the next two years.

The directors would like to recognize the contributions of Past President Dentinger for his efforts in 2014 and 2015, two of the most successful years in the history of the Renaissance with record-breaking events and charitable giving, headlined by our $50,000 donation to the new Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
