Loredana Drovetto, landed at American Appraisal in 1985 as an executive assistant to the Turin office manager. After joining, she found many opportunities to improve her skills and grow professionally. The acquisition by Duff & Phelps represented another milestone in her career, which she calls “the last and probably the most important.”
Loredana became a part of Duff & Phelps through the American Appraisal acquisition in February 2015. She is now serving as Managing Director and CEO of the Fixed Asset Management and Insurance Solutions (FAMIS) practice in Italy. FAMIS includes also fair market valuations, technical due diligence and insurance-related real estate project checks and management, with $5 million USD in revenue.

I am a Managing Director in the London tax advisory practice within Duff & Phelps’ new Compliance and Regulatory Consulting (CRC) division (the former Kinetic Partners business). My team comprises of 12 people and was the very first team at Kinetic Partners when it was founded in March 2005. We are a UK centric tax practice in that our expertise lies primarily with UK tax legislation but we also get involved in global projects with UK tax implications. This is a fascinating client base – the individuals we work with are intelligent, driven and tax (as a direct cost against their profit each year) is an important factor to the way they run their business. Our relationship is with the founders/principals of the business or their CFO/CEOs which keeps us on our toes!

I am a member of the FAMIS practice based out The Shard, London office. My primary role is business development for the UK and Middle East. I also sit on the recently formed Global FAMIS committee. Being in business development, for me, the thing that keeps my engine turning at full speed is all of the untapped connections and ‘what if’s’ in our business. What if we communicate better globally? What if I knew more about my colleagues? What if all just give this a go? The possibilities and open goals here at Duff & Phelps really are plentiful and there for the taking.
