Experience & Background:
Corinne Avelines is a senior leader with 25 years of international experience at the heart of Business and Technology. She holds a Master of Science degree from ENST Bretagne and an MBA from IMD.

Since 2021, Corinne is the CEO of SIBIUS, a healthtech startup in mental health, aiming at early detection of cognitive disorders for children (e.g. Autism, Attention, DYS disorders) and seniors (e.g. dementia, Alzheimer) leveraging Artificial Intelligence and patented technologies.

Corinne, who lives near Geneva, serves on the Boards of Directors of Spadel, a listed mineral water company in Belgium and Transdev NL, a leading public transportation operator in the Netherlands.

Previously, Corinne served as Chief Digital Officer for TomTom (consumer electronics), JDE (coffee and tea) and AkzoNobel (paints & coatings). Earlier on in her career, Corinne served as COO for an ecommerce pure player, Voyages-sncf.com (now SNCF-connect) and Engagement Director for IT consulting companies in France and the UK.

After nearly a decade as Chief Digital Officer for large corporates, Corinne decided to create impact in smaller and innovative companies, joining first Innit (foodtech based in California), then myTomorrows (Dutch healthtech) and more recently SIBIUS.
