Caputo & Associates, hosts The First Bank of Greenwich, at their Headquarters in Rye Brook.

Caputo & Associates, was founded in 1991, by Mr. Rocco Caputo, Managing Partner. This firm located in Rye Brook is comprised of experts in the field of accounting, who offer unique customized services, blending their Experience, Expertise and Energy.

Mr. Caputo is known for his caring, personal and professional attention to each client and has instilled this with his team. This approach and their willingness to excel above and beyond expectations, is hallmark of the firm. Their dedication to provide timely and responsive, quality services to clients at reasonable fees is their credo. We asked Rocco, how the firm develops new business and he shared, “new business comes from the people who know the firm best, who refer other clients and this is what has fueled our growth from the very beginning”.

Rocco came to this country at the age of 4 from Avellino, Italy and settled with his family in Port Chester, where he grew up, attended public schools. After graduating from Fairleigh Dickinson University with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Accounting, he took on the role of Accounting Manager at a medium size CPA firm in New York City. The firm first opened in New Rochelle, then moved to Rye, but finally settled in Rye Brook in 2002, where, he says, “the firm has finally found its rightful home”. He and his wife and children, currently reside in Port Chester.

In January of 2017, Michael Mastrogiacomo was promoted to principal within the firm. Michael joined Caputo & Associates as an accounting intern back in 2005 while attending Pace University. He graduated in 2006 with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration Degree. The current staff consists of 15 people, of which 80% are from Port Chester, Rye Brook and the environs. This well polished team warmly welcomes everyone to their offices. Rocco is so grateful for this team and told us that, “with the tremendous dedication of my hard-working staff, the firm has blossomed into something more than I could have ever imagined, and that is due to every staff member and client who has put their trust in me”.

The synergy between Mr. Caputo and Mr. Frank Gaudio, goes back fifteen years when they were both accountants and their paths crossed. They are not only business colleagues, they are friends, who respect and support one another. Mr. Frank Gaudio, CEO and President of the First Bank of Greenwich, explained it this way “my relationship with Rocco, goes way beyond business, we both share a love for our community, often working in tandem supporting various charities and causes – this is what life is truly about; caring for those that need our help”.

Caputo & Associates and the bank share common goals, centered by a strong work ethic, diverse talents, dedication and the ability to respond quickly to client needs.
