Barry's Column


Coming soon.


Skylight Signs was formed by Frank Cleere and Michael Bonanno in 2002 after the collapse of one of the largest sign companies on the East Coast.  Frank was the head of estimating and production, and Mike was in sales.  They formed an alliance with a balance between sales and production to create Skylight, which now has 12 employees.  Jim joined the team 8 years ago after “peddling’ Wonder Bread and Twinkies for Hostess for 20 years.

Skylight designs, manufactures, installs, and services signage for any kind of business that values identity as its life blood.  They value creating long-lasting, trusting relationships with their valued customers.  Jim enjoys the challenge, creativity, and hard work that goes into the process – from signing the customer to getting permits, and finally seeing the finished product.  “A business with no sign, is a sign of no business!”

Eighteen years ago, the sales team – also known as Mike Bonanno – was working hard to acquire one of the largest, local grocery stores as a customer.  On one of his daily calls to the chain, he was told about one of the letters in a sign being out, and the company they were then working with would get there sometime within the week.  The customer asked Mike if there was any way Skylight could take a look sooner.  Fate had one of their service teams just finishing a job across the street from the problem sign and were in the parking lot repairing it within five minutes.  Today, Skylight treats Wegmans as they did then – with great customer service and speedy response times.

In addition to being an active member of the Webster Chamber of Commerce, Skylight also participates with the Henrietta, Gates, Greece, and Brighton Chambers of Commerce.

On a side note, can you guess their favorite song?  “Signs” written by the Five Man Electrical Band in 1970 and redone by the rock group Tesla in 1986.

Congratulations to Jim and Skylight Signs as the Webster Chamber of Commerce’s October 2021 Business of the Month.

Register Button

With the rise of more contagious COVID-19 variants, government officials are trying different approaches to either incentivize or require more people to obtain a COVID-19 vaccine. Some states or municipalities are requiring vaccines for employees performing certain jobs and President Biden has announced plans to require employees working for large private employers, the federal government, federal contractors, and healthcare entities be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Please join Iskra and Ed for a discussion on the current New York State and federal vaccine mandates and the issues employers are facing. We will provide you with practical advice on navigating the requirements, while staying in compliance with laws and policies related to leaves of absence, discrimination, accommodation, and privacy concerns.

Professional Development Credits: This program has been submitted for Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and HR Certification Institute (HRCI) credit.

New York State Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Credits: New York State CLE credit: 1.0 Professional Practice

About the Series

In lieu of hosting our annual in-person conference this past spring, Harter Secrest & Emery's Labor & Employment practice group is pleased to introduce the 2021 Labor and Employment Law Breakfast Briefing Webinar Series.
