Stacey Sao, Founder & Managing Director
Stacey Sao Stacey Sao developed the idea for BostonCentral when she moved to the Boston area in 2001 and encountered a great deal of difficulty finding useful, family-friendly information in a central place. So she compiled the research she did for her family's move and put it online - and BostonCentral was born.

Having been in high-tech marketing for many years, she launched BostonCentral to provide great family-friendly information not only to newcomers, but also to local residents who are looking for great family events and activities.

Over the years, the site and its following have grown exponentially via web presence & word of mouth - and she continues to love what she does.

A 1991 graduate of Villanova University, and an avid sports fan, puzzler, arts junkie, and beach enthusiast, Stacey resides in the Boston area with her husband, daughter, son, and the family parrot.

Sham SaoSham Sao is an Advisor to Boston Central and helped Stacey found the website back in 2001. He's a Boston-area technology executive with experience serving SaaS companies in roles such as GM and Chief Revenue Officer (CRO), and is the founder of Growth 11 (Eleven).
