Menlo Technologies Inc., a high-tech company founded by Los Altos native Gary Prioste, recently moved its offices from Santa Clara to downtown Los Altos, above.

Moving Menlo Technologies Inc. from Santa Clara to downtown Los Altos has enabled CEO and founder Gary Prioste to shorten his commute and expand his company.

“I can’t say it’s centrally located for all of our employees – a lot of them are in the South Bay or Santa Cruz,” said the Menlo Park resident, who grew up in Los Altos. “But for a few of us living farther up north, this is a better location.”
