Paul Dio and Gene Leyzarovich talk about moving to America, building and growing his business, and understanding the landscape of the storage industry all while growing to a multimillion-dollar brand.

Gene Leyzarovich, founder of ACNC

More than 30 years ago, Gene Leyzarovich arrived in his new home of Pittsburgh as a refugee from Moscow, Russia. Only two years later, while completing his education at the University of Pittsburgh and working night shifts at UPMC, Gene founded Advanced Computer & Network Corporation (AC&NC) to build high-performance JetStor (US federal trademark) storage systems, and he has never looked back.
