Pagliaccio Selected for Henry Toll Fellow
Elliot Pagliaccio, deputy comptroller for the Division of State Government Accountability at the Office of the State Comptroller, is one of 48 promising leaders selected for the prestigious Toll Fellowship Program sponsored by the Council of State Governments (CSG).
New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli, a past recipient of the Toll Fellowship in 1996, said "Elliot is an innovative leader who thinks outside the box and has introduced cutting-edge fraud auditing techniques in his division. He is well deserving of this recognition and an example of one of the truly exceptional managers in state government."
The fellowship program is named in honor of Henry Toll, a former Colorado senator who founded the CSG in 1933. The program seeks to develop the next generation of leaders from all three branches of state government. It is the highest recognition given by CSG.
Pagliaccio is responsible for overseeing audits of New York State and City agencies, authorities and entities funded by New York State. He has also spearheaded a major effort by the office to improve the state's collaborative work with the nonprofit sector. He has previously served as an inspector general with the former New York State Division for Youth and as an assistant commissioner with the New York State Division of Housing & Community Renewal. Pagliaccio also spent over 10 years as a vice president and senior fellow with The Rensselaerville Institute.
Pagliaccio holds a Master in Social Work from Adelphi University, Garden City, New York and a Post Masters Certificate in Management of Human Services from the Adelphi School of Social Work and School of Business.
