Loretta has been part of management at the English National Opera, in London for ten years and as Chief Executive Officer for seven years. One of her greatest business achievements was to turn around the fortunes of the Opera which was going through difficult times. During her time at the helm, which ended in 2015, the English National Opera developed a reputation for bold, distinctive and award winning work and increased its national partnerships. She became one of the most powerful women in the British Arts scene! Loretta was awarded an OBE (Order of the British Empire), presented by Prince Charles in 2014.
