CJ Pacelli

Implementing, supporting and maintaining all of our IT services

I manage and monitor all installed technology systems, infrastructure and networks in order to enhance our team’s capabilities. I coordinate our help desk and prioritize matters while delivering the highest level of technical systems and structures available. My goal is to always keep all technologies up and running properly.

What brought me here

I have performed systems-related work in just about every type of industry, for various companies, for the last 20 years. My employers include; W. W. Norton & Company, Scholastic, New York Road Runners, Doan and BearingPoint - just to name a few. I have extensive experience designing and implementing secure virtualized server systems that support a wide variety of software systems in test, development and production environments. I joined the AdvisorEngine team in 2018.

How I balance life

Music is a big part of my life. My undergraduate degree is in vocal performance and I enjoy singing in a local chorus. When not at work or singing, I can be found spending time with friends, watching a good Netflix series or taking a long walk on the beach.

My favorite quote

“I was told only to speak good of the dead, Joan Crawford is dead - good!” – Bette Davis

What I want to know most in life

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop?

Who inspires a sense of adventure in me

Trevor Belmont from Castlevania inspires me - mainly because he fights vampires. But beyond that, he is an adventurer and doesn’t seem to have a care in the world. I choose to live my life similarly.
