Pegula goes low key with GM/coach meetings

When you’re an owner and CEO of two major league franchises your time can be short, so one would think that Bills and Sabres owner Terry Pegula would need to have regimented schedule to have time for all the interactions that need to take place between his front office staff for the two clubs and the head coaches. But Pegula prefers to do just the opposite and meet on an impromptu basis with Bills GM Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott.

“It’s very casual,” said Pegula. “I like things low key, so I may walk into (Sean McDermott’s) office unannounced and talk for an hour. Or he may go in my office or Brandon or whomever. That’s the way I like to do things, rather than be all official and say, ‘Hey we’re going to have a meeting next Tuesday at two o’clock.’ Because I may not be there because something else has come up.”

The approach makes sense knowing Pegula, and his wife and co-owner Kim, can be pulled in any number of directions at a moment’s notice with all their companies, holding and properties that demand their attention.
