Professional Advisor Council

Dan Lofrese has served on the Advisory Board of the Community Foundation of Northern Nevada since 2020.  However, his involvement with the Community Foundation began in 2015 when he opened his donor advised fund.  It continued in 2017 when he joined the Professional Advisor Council (PAC).  Dan worked with Jim Webster - one of the founders of the foundation – for 17 years before his move to Reno in 2015.

Dan was born and raised in Orange County, NY.  He graduated from Fordham University in 1999 and has worked for Gabelli Asset Management Company (GAMCO), a diversified global financial services company with assets under management of $33 billion, since 1998.  In 2018, he earned an Executive MBA from UNR.   

Dan’s interest in education is evidenced by his involvement as a board member of the Truckee Meadows Community College Foundation and as an Advisory Board member for the College of Liberal Arts at both the University of Nevada, Reno, and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.  He is also a Rotarian, an Elk, and a member of the Board of Directors for the National Security Forum of Northern Nevada.

Dan has lived in Reno for 6 years.  He and his wife, Camellia, have been married since 2018 and have one daughter.  Camellia is currently completing her medical residency in New Jersey.  Like many others, they welcomed a puppy into their household in March 2020.  When he’s not working, Dan enjoys reading, reading, and more reading.
