For this year’s edition of our annual feature, we wanted to showcase not only the impressive accomplishments of the area’s decision-makers, business bigwigs and giants of industry but also get to know the people behind the titles. With that in mind, we’re pleased to introduce our readers to 2023’s Executives of the Year, 19 individuals who’ve answered leadership’s call to action in their ongoing missions to make South Jersey—and its neighboring regions, too—a great place to both work and call home.

A Rutgers–Camden alumnus, Cicalese joined Alloy in 1980. Since then, he has seen the CPA firm’s team grow and services expand, and will celebrate its 65th anniversary in 2024. In addition to providing tax and accounting solutions to individuals and businesses, Cicalese manages the firm and supervises its services in the areas of M&As, reorganization, client accounting services, payroll and more, and is a member of several professional organizations. The Medford resident passionately advocates for giving back to South Jersey and leads Alloy through many charitable initiatives, including an Adopt-a-Family drive, American Heart Association fundraising, encouraging employees’ paid volunteer days, and hosting collection drives.

What’s a secret talent or skill of yours that would surprise people?
How hard I work, still to this day. It would surprise people how early I get to work each morning, and that I’m always the first one in. And that I started my accounting career as a tax season temp—yet here I am today.
