Rocco Paone started working at Buffalo Exchange Brooklyn as a Buyer in 2007. Since then, he’s come a long way. Believe it or not, this mild-mannered young man recently distinguished himself as the very first person in Buffalo Exchange history to have worked in management at all 5 of our New York locations!
New York State of Mind
Rocco moved to Williamsburg in 2006, fresh from college in upstate NY. This was back when rent was still affordable in Brooklyn and he was eager to move to the Big City. He worked at our Brooklyn location for 3 and ½ years, climbing the ladder to earn an Associate Manager promotion in 2010.
In November 2010, Rocco helped open the Chelsea location as an Associate Manager and was amazed to watch business skyrocket from day one. From there, he rocked on to the Boerum Hill store in downtown Brooklyn and then to Astoria, Queens, all in 2013. He loved being part of the gamble Buffalo Exchange took opening in Queens – there was no other store like it in that part of New York.
