Ferdinando Maria Brachetti Peretti (born in Rome on January 13 1960), from the wealthy Brachetti Peretti family, is Chairman and CEO of an Italian energy company, API Group.[1]

Early life and education[edit]

Brachetti Peretti's father, Count Aldo Maria Brachetti Peretti, was for thirty years, until September 2007, head of the family Group “API” (Anonima Petroli Italiana), founded by his maternal grandfather Cav. Del Lavoro Ferdinando Peretti.[citation needed] His mother, Mila,[2] worked for more than 30 years in the Red Cross and is the only woman in Italy to carry the military grade of General.

After graduating from high school with a diploma in classical studies, Brachetti Peretti enrolled in the School of Business and Economics at the University of Rome (“La Sapienza”). During his studies he served his military service as an official in the Carabinieri in 1980-1981 in Naples, achieving a Solemn Encomium for the 1980 Irpinia earthquake from the President of Republic.[citation needed]


Brachetti Peretti began his career in 1983 in the family company, the energy group API Anonima Petroli Italiana – IP Italiana Petroli 100% owned by API Holding, of which he is, together with his brothers, 100% shareholder. His father, head of the Group for 30 years, delegated[3] full powers to Brachetti Peretti in September 2007. He is Chairman and CEO of API Holding,[4] the financial safe of all the API Group companies and Chairman of the two sub-holdings of the electric sector, Api Energia and Api Nova Energia. He is also Chairman member of the Coordination Committee of the API Group. He moved to London for four years where he initiated the petroleum trading office. He then transferred to Paris for two years, to study administration and finance after an internship at the Paribas Bank; he returned to the headquarters in Rome in the 1990s, taking growing responsibilities in other sectors of the Group.[5][6][7] In November 2017 Brachetti Peretti, as Chairman and CEO of API Holding, oversaw the company’s acquisition of Total/Erg which was reported to be valued at around €650m.[8][9][10]
