The Gambino crime family has promoted former acting underboss Domenico "Italian Dom" Cefalu as the new official boss. Cefalu, currently on parole, was serving as acting underboss on the street for the jailed Arnold "Zeke" Squitieri. This change signifies the end of the leadership of the Gotti clan with previous boss Peter "One Eye" Gotti in jail serving a life sentence.

Recently on the street the family was being run by a three man ruling committee/panel which consisted of Daniel Marino (jailed), Bartolomeo "Bobby" Vernace (jailed), and John Gambino. John Gambino is reportedly on a wheelchair and gravely ill, and Vernace was recently named the family's new consigliere. The current leadership now consists of:
  • Boss: Domenico "Italian Dom" Cefalu (Paroled)
  • Underboss: Arnold “Zeke” Squitieri (Jailed)
  • Consigliere: Bartolomeo "Bobby Glasses" Vernace (Jailed, Under Indictment)
  • New Jersey Faction Boss: Alphonse "Funzi" Sisca
  • Estimated Membership: About 260 Made Members
Look out for an update to our current leadership charts section by the end of the year.
