ALBANY – The parent company of the Albany Business Review recently named Sonny Bonacio of Bonacio Construction and Galesi Group President and CEO Dave Buicko as top “influencers” of commercial real estate (CRE) in their respective communities.   

The American City Business Journals, which publishes the Albany Business Review and more than 40 similar weeklies nationwide for 3.6 million subscribers, named Bonacio and Buicko among 100 executives in its recent listing of Business Journals’ Influencers: Commercial Real Estate.  

According to the Business Journals, Bonacio Construction marks 30 years of operation in 2018. The company evolved from completing deck installations and home additions in 1988 to develop more than 1.2 million square feet of condominiums, apartments, retail outlets and other real estate in Saratoga Springs. 

Led by Buicko, the Rotterdam-based Galesi Group has developed 12 million square feet of industrial, commercial and residential buildings, including the $150 million Mohawk Harbor project and—in partnership with Rush Street Gaming—the $330 million Rivers Casino and Resort in Schenectady, the listing indicated.  

Bonacio and Buicko also have partnered on several construction projects, the Business Journals reported.
