LIFFEPlan CCO is the only parent-led CCO in New York State. Our CEO, Nick Cappoletti, has a child with a disability.

" Every person deserves the opportunity to lead a full and meaningful life. Every family deserves the peace of mind that their loved one will be cared for now and when they can no longer care of them. That is my commitment to my son and family, and that is our commitment to you and your family." - Nick 

Since 2006, Nick Cappoletti has been the Executive Director of Advocates Inc., a Syracuse-based agency that provides supports and services for over 900 people spanning all phases of life from birth through adulthood, promoting choice and making full community participation possible. LIFEPlan CCO NY Board Chair, Alan Krafchin, and Vice-Chair Louis B. Tehan,  noted Nick’s dedication to serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and his unique perspective as a parent. Nick is also the Chairperson of the NYS Developmental Disabilities Advisory Council, and served as a member of the NYS OPWDD Transformation Panel. Prior to leading Advocates, Nick was an executive with the IBM Corporation. He is a graduate of LeMoyne College, and has an MBA from Syracuse University’s Martin J. Whitman School of Management.
