Engel & Völkers adds D’Amico


Engel & Völkers of East Greenwich has announced that Liana D’Amico has joined its brokerage firm as a global property adviser, bringing more than a decade of marketing and client service expertise to this new role.

D’Amico specializes in assisting sellers who are buying or moving, as well as new builds. She is also a reliable advocate for Portuguese speaking clients buying or selling a home. D’Amico is originally from Brazil and is fluent in Portuguese and English.

She joins Engel & Völkers East Greenwich from Greenwich Bay Brokers. Prior to a career in real estate, she was a dental assistant at an oral surgery center for over a decade. D’Amico established strong client relationships during his time there, as well as the ability to communicate effectively, especially in high pressure situations. This proved to be an invaluable skill when she became a real estate consultant in 2015.

In this new role, D’Amico will use his experience in marketing and relationship building to help his clients achieve their real estate goals.

“Engel & Völkers has opened so many doors and new opportunities to help my business reach the next level, says D’Amico. “Their global brand recognition, exposure and business strategy, along with their innovative advisory and client tools, enable me to provide my clients with the highest level of service.”

D’Amico is a member of the National Association of Realtors, the Kent Washington Association of Realtors, and the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals. She holds a certification in pricing strategies. She is licensed in RI, MA and CT.

“Liana is passionate about putting her clients first,” says Emilio DiSpirito, co-owner of Engel & Völkers East Greenwich. “We are delighted to have Liana with us on the team and look forward to seeing her career continue to flourish.”

Trinity appoints new CEO

Trinity Repertory Company announces Tuesday that Kate Liberman will join its leadership team as Executive Director in September 2022. Liberman is a proven leader whose work has focused on strong financial management, organizational growth and transformation, and a commitment continues to build a community focused on belonging, inclusion, diversity, equity and anti-racism. The national executive search process was guided by Arts Consulting Group.

Liberman, a native of Needham, Massachusetts, will come to Trinity Rep of the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival (HVSF), where she has served as Executive Director since 2015. There she helped grow the institution with increased revenue contributed and enhanced operations. She has supported the development of numerous commissions, world premieres and Off-Broadway transfers; helped navigate organizational preservation during pandemic shutdowns; and led a strategic reopening as the first theater in New York State to restart in-person performances. She has led the business through its transformation as it will receive 98 acres of property to serve as a permanent home. While at HVSF, Kate was named a Westchester Business Council 40 under 40 Rising Star and served as President of the Cold Spring Area Chamber of Commerce.

Prior to working at HVSF, Liberman served as general manager of the Laguna Playhouse and associate general manager of the Yale Repertory Theater. She also has experience in various roles for the Berkeley Repertory Theater and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Liberman holds a master’s degree in theater management from Yale’s David Geffen School of Drama and an MBA from Yale School of Management. She is a Truman Scholar and previously served in a volunteer capacity as President of the Truman Scholars Association.

Liberman will co-direct Trinity Rep in partnership with Curt Columbus, the theater’s artistic director. Director of Development Jennifer Canole will continue as Trinity Rep’s interim chief executive until Liberman begins full-time in September.

Trinity Rep’s Vice Chairman of the Board, Kibbe Reilly, led the executive search committee, made up of 12 directors, staff and artists. Reilly said: “Early on in the search process, we were committed to selecting the best person for the position of Executive Director and that is exactly what happened. Kate Liberman is a rising star in this field and we are lucky to have her join our excellent team at Trinity Rep. I look forward to his leadership.

“Kate Liberman represents a remarkable new generation of theater leaders in America,” said Curt Columbus, Arthur P. Solomon and Sally E. Lapides, Artistic Director. “She brings an enviable range of skills to her work as a theatrical producer and institutional thinker that are essential to the health and sustainability of any cultural organization. She shares our vision of how theater work can go beyond the confines of the stage, even the building, to have a deep and lasting impact as a public square in Rhode Island and Southeastern New England. I can’t imagine finding a better partner to co-lead Trinity in its bold next phase.
