John Pellitteri- Partner, Grassi & Co.
A financial expert with a strong background in healthcare consulting is a professional much in demand these days. Even so, John Pellitteri, who runs Grassi
& Co.’s Healthcare Services division, is a standout in the field.
Pellitteri’s relationship-focused client service model has created significant savings for clients. Notably, one client—a Long Island–based healthcare practice with roughly $5 million in revenue and 24 employees—benefitted tremendously from the quarterly meetings he held (a service rarely performed by other professionals).
This proactive approach allowed Pellitteri to identify time-sensitive tax issues, such as a $500,000 tax liability on a piece of real estate that the client was able to defer through a like-kind exchange.
Also notable are his efforts in educating his peers and the larger community. Pellitteri has authored numerous articles on fraud prevention, human resources issues, compliance, and operations.
He is also a monthly guest on The Profit Express, a weekly radio show on 88.7 FM (Long Island), where he discusses a variety of contemporary financial issues.
