Rupali Lamba

Senior Project Coordinator

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

— Maya Angelou


To work hard and never give up is one of the greatest lessons imparted on Rupali by her parents. It carries through in everything she does to this day. There is the time when she earned her bachelor’s while working full time and now, raising her kids as a full-time working mom. This mindset of lifelong learning is perhaps one of the reasons she’s honed her project management skills while getting smart on a rich cross-section of sectors over her career, from executive search and insurance to industrial and consumer. We’d also add that she’s an incredible listener.

Rupali Lamba is a senior project coordinator in the Technology practice at Acertitude. In this role, she ensures our delivery teams provide exceptional service across every touch point of an engagement as we recruit brilliant people at work. Her responsibilities involve strategic project oversight, executive communications, calendar management, compiling deliverables, and team operations. 

Rupali’s ability to drive projects to successful outcomes stems from a rich and diverse career as an executive assistant, project manager, and marketeer. She’s progressed through roles of increasing responsibility for more than 15 years across the professional services, industrial, consumer, and government sectors. 

Most recently, Rupali served as senior executive assistant to a C-suite executive of a Fortune 500 manufacturing company. Here, she handled communications with high-profile leaders, critical administrative tasks, and complex travel and calendar arrangements. Before that, she provided C-suite support as an EA at Nestlé Waters and AXA XL. Her earlier career includes five years as executive assistant and project manager to C-suite executives and partners at executive search firm Korn Ferry. Rupali holds a dual BBA in international marketing and finance from Pace University as well as an HRCI certification. 

Rupali lives with her family in Easton, CT. In her off hours, you can find her in the garden beds around her house, tending to an assortment of vegetables and fruits. Watching her kids’ playing soccer and swimming or watching a good marvels movie are also high on the list of weekend activities.
