Daniela Lupu

Research Associate

Daniela is a generalist researcher and supports various practices across the business.

My story

Originally from Romania, I graduated from the University of Southampton in 2021 with a BA in Modern Languages (English, French, Russian), which included a year abroad that I spent studying at l’Université d’Aix-Marseille in Aix-en-Provence, France. Realising that I could use my passion for languages and my interest in research to build a career, I moved to London and started my journey in executive search. Prior to joining Savannah, I worked at a boutique firm specialising in search across Sub-Saharan Africa, and then joined Erevena as an Associate focusing on senior leadership search mandates for VC-backed B2B FinTech and SaaS clients across Europe.

My focus

I joined Savannah as a generalist researcher and support various practices across the business with identifying and engaging with the best available talent in the market, across multiple geographies. I have a personal interest in the Tech sector.

My motivation

The part that I enjoy the most about working in Executive Search and mostly now at Savannah is all the broad insight that I can get into different markets and sectors, both from the clients’ and the candidates’ perspectives. I have the unique opportunity of understanding how various organisations operate and to help them build the future that they envision. Moreover, every project allows me to connect with unique and forward-thinking leaders, eager to support and transform businesses throughout their growth journey.
