Douglas Pacitti - Fischer Cunnane & Associates

Douglas A. Pacitti, CPA



Doug is the complete package—especially for those clients he’s served for many years or even decades.

I started here as an intern, and some of the clients I worked on as a staff person, I now serve as a shareholder. I’ve been exposed to a lot of experiences over the years that helped give me context and insight into my clients’ challenges.

Doug has evolved into a true multidisciplinary business advisor. He is involved in providing the full range of Fischer Cunnane’s services—from employee benefit plan audits to tax and estate planning to other business advisory services. He’s served closely held clients in industries as diverse as transportation, telecommunications, professional services, manufacturing and distribution.

This breadth of expertise, combined with his depth of experience with each client, allows him to grasp the client’s overall vision and big-picture goals. Doug’s ideal client is one that sees him as an extension of the management team and brings him in before making any big decision. He enjoys providing the information business leaders need to understand the long-term impact of various alternatives, ultimately allowing them to make an educated decision. Then he marshals the resources to execute the components involved in making that decision come to life.

Being a part of that continuous cycle of growth and success is what keeps Doug pumped up about his job. I feel like my clients’ successes are my successes. It’s exciting when you have clients that really grow and you’ve been with them for the whole ride. That’s why I’m always eager to get here in the morning.

Doug also takes great pride in nurturing his team members. As director of personnel for the firm, he’s always looking for individuals with the ability and desire to become long-term members. I knew within just a few years of being hired that I wanted to be here long-term, because the shareholders made me feel valuable and were always willing to pass on their guidance. I hope I am able to do the same thing for the next generation of Fischer Cunnane employees.
