Locally, we know Nick Donofrio as a valued philanthropist, community leader and mentor. The world is about to find out what drove it to become a central part of the tech industry.

Donofrio’s new autobiography, “If Nothing Changes, Nothing Changes, The Nicholas Donofrio Story,” gives us a personal insight into Nick Donofrio and how his strong family values ​​propelled him to become one of the most iconic companies in the world.

The book serves as a handbook for any parent raising their children to be moral, and any leader navigating their team, in an ever-changing world.

The autobiography documents his journey from humble beginnings as the son of immigrants to his pivotal role in the tech industry that spanned half a century. It gives the reader a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at how much of the technology we use today came to fruition, and how Donofrio used the values ​​instilled in him by his parents as a guide to spur not just innovation but also the success of his team as well.

As a leader, I understood that my real job was to SIMPLY LISTEN to my team members and fight for them until they could achieve our vision.
