Meet the New Boss at the Incubator

Robert Fritzinger

In November, Robert H. Fritzinger was named director of the new SUNY Fredonia Business Technology Incubator.

For the past 20 years, he has been involved in the creation, development, day-to-day management, financing and sale of multiple high-technology companies, including Voice Technologies Group, a cutting-edge telecommunications vendor which he successfully sold to Intel Corp. in 2000.

He is currently Chairman of the Board of Zenhire, Inc., a search engine technology innovator which operates in the human resources industry along with such companies as Monster, and LinkedIn. Next spring Zenhire will relocate to the incubator, setting the stage for full- and part-time employment as it grows.

“We are very excited to welcome Bob to the project,” SUNY Fredonia President Dennis L. Hefner said. “We opened this facility to attract and build new businesses in the technology sector to our region, and then help them flourish here. Bob has the skills, knowledge and experience we were looking for to make this happen. We’re very fortunate to have an individual with his unique qualifications available at this critical point in the development of the incubator.”

Mr. Fritzinger is affiliated with the Panel of Advisors for the Science and Technology Law Center, part of the Albany Law School Center for Law & Innovation. He has also served as an advisor to the University at Buffalo’s (UB) Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership within the Jacobs School of Management, as well as a judge for both the Henry A. Panasci, Jr. Technology Entrepreneurship Competition and the Niagara Frontier Intellectual Property Law Association’s Inventor of the Year Competition.

Fritzinger is a SUNY alumnus as well, having earned a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from UB in 1976, followed by a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from UB in 1979. In addition to being a lifelong resident of Western New York, along with his wife, Deborah, he has spent summers at Dunkirk’s Van Buren Point continuously for the past 52 years, making him well-versed in the Chautauqua County business and political landscapes.
