GreatDad.com Announces Headquarters in San Francisco, California CEO and Founder, Paul Banas

Headquartered in San Francisco, California, GreatDad.com (http://www.greatdad.com) is a leading source of experience, recommendations, inspiration and advice for dads - delivered from the male perspective. Based on insight and his experience of more than 20 years of marketing and business development at companies including Unilever, Visa International, Alibris.com and most recently, Yahoo!

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 16, 2007 -- At its new headquarters in San Francisco, California, GreatDad.com (http://www.greatdad.com) is a leading source of experience, recommendations, inspiration and advice for dads - delivered from the male perspective. Based on insight and his experience of more than 20 years of marketing and business development at companies including Unilever, Visa International, Alibris.com and most recently, Yahoo! Inc., Banas founded GreatDad.com.

As a new Dad, Paul Banas was looking for a business idea that would allow him the flexibility to spend time with his family. And, as a dad, he became very aware that many dads today are more involved in parenting but have limited resources from a man's point of view from which to better understand the challenges of their changing role. Based on this insight and his experience of more than 20 years of marketing and business development at companies including Unilever, Visa International, Alibris.com and most recently, Yahoo! Inc., Banas founded GreatDad.com.

"While nothing can imitate or replace the special mother/child bond, dads develop incredible relationships with their children and it is vitally important that they have a place to discuss the parenting process from a male perspective. Data indicates that fathers today are more involved in family life versus a generation ago due to factors including post-911 security fears, loss of career-long job security, and increased demands on working moms and dual-career families," said Banas. "GreatDad.com enables all dads - working, stay-at-home, single, gay, domestic partners, and more - to find ways to be involved and understand how dads are functioning as parents today."

In addition to managing GreatDad.com, Banas is a member of the Marketing Executives Networking Group (MENG), former President and founder of the International Advertising Association's San Francisco chapter, and a member of the San Francisco Thunderbird Alumni group. Paul sits on the Board of the Institut Francais de Washington (Chapel Hill, N.C.) and works on the Public Affairs committee for Planned Parenthood's Golden Gate Chapter.

Banas is a native of Minnesota and earned a B.A. degree in French from the University of Minnesota. Paul earned an M.A. in French at Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont and holds an M.B.A. from the Garvin School of International Marketing at Thunderbird. A published author of fictional short stories, Banas resides in San Francisco with his wife and two children.
