Daniela Beyrouti is the founder of Beyrouti & Partner Executive Search. In the twenty years of her diverse executive search experience – working in large, global executive search firms, smaller entrepreneurial search boutiques and her own firm – she has had the privilege of living and working in Germany, France, Italy, the USA and Switzerland. This international background has resulted in a large global network of clients, candidates, friends and colleagues and has given her the inter-cultural sensitivity needed to successfully assess candidates and ensure the culture fit with a client organization. Very much of a generalist, she works for clients in Industry, Consumer Goods, Technology, Media/Entertainment, Private Equity and NGOs/Public Health.
Daniela Beyrouti started her career in international film production in Munich and Rome. Following her shift into Executive Search, she worked as project and team leader at Heidrick & Struggles in Paris and became an expert in recruiting digital talent for a wide range of clients as independent search entrepreneur in Los Angeles.
She holds a Master of Business Administration, which she completed in Paris. Her native language is German, and she is fluent in English, French and Italian.
For the past 10 years she has been working and living with her two grown-up daughters in Zürich, a city close to her heart as it is near her native home in the Southern Black Forest in Germany. She is a founding member of the Rotary Club Zurich Circle International, and in her free time runs half-marathons and enjoys rowing on Lake Zurich in the mornings.
Stefanie specializes in the recruitment of cross-functional executive-level and non-executive board searches for the pharmaceutical, CDMO, MedTech and Biotech industries in Switzerland and internationally.
Prior to joining Beyrouti & Partners she worked with industry-leading companies, such as Novartis and Lonza advising and consulting them across Human Ressources, Talent Acquisition and Organizational Development. In her most recent role at CordenPharma, a fast-growing CDMO with > 2500 employees globally, she led the corporate Human Resources function and Talent Acquisition team, successfully attracting and retaining top industry talents, such as the COO, the Chief Quality & Compliance Officer, the General Counsel and many other positions on C and C-1 levels.
She is an accredited Trainer and Assessor for the Predictive Index Assessment Tool which she applied to identify and match the best talent for her client organizations. She used the tool for Team Buildings, Organizational Change initiatives and individual development programs.
Stefanie holds a master’s degree in Law and an Executive MBA of Science in Communications Management from the University of Lugano (USI), the University of California (UCLA) and Singapore Management University (SMU). Her native language is German, and she speaks fluent English and French, holding both Swiss and French nationalities. As a member of the Association “Statistisch Volkswirtschaftliche Gesellschaft in Basel,” Stefanie takes a strong interest in current topics from the world of business and science.
