Corinne heads Accord Group Poland. One of Poland’s leading executive search professionals, she is a founding member of AltoPartners, a leading international alliance of retained executive search and leadership consulting firms with 59 offices in 35 countries, where she leads the Global Consumer Goods, Retail and Luxury Practice Group. She is also co-founder and non-executive chair of Nuvadis Interim, a specialist operation dedicated to helping clients to navigate business transitions and interim management assignments.
Corinne and her team have conducted over 850 senior-level executive search assignments over the last twenty years for multinational and European-based businesses. Her speciality is CXO and leadership placements, as well as digital and business transformation roles.
Beyond the search focus, she maintains a thriving coaching practice exclusively for CEOs and regularly facilitates board discussions as part of her leadership consulting services.
Born on the Indian Ocean Island of Mauritius, Corinne lived and worked in China for ten years, where she graduated from the Beijing Language & Culture University and completed an Executive MBA from the CEIBS in Shanghai while working at Halliburton International and later at International SOS Assistance. Before moving to Poland, she joined the Executive Search firm Ray & Berndtson in 1994 as Country Manager.
Corinne has a keen sense of community and a comprehensive and trusted network: she is an active YPO member and a guest lecturer at the Warsaw School of Economics and the Executive Programme for Women at Kozminski University. She also supports the Warsaw Volunteer Mission (WVM), Porta Foundation, Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity (WOŚP) and the Unaweza Foundation, where she runs under the banner of #CorinneRunsForGood (#CRFG), crossing the world’s four largest deserts to raise funds for young Paralympians.
“I love that clients trust me to help them with arguably the most critical component of their business: the necessary leadership to define and fulfil their strategic vision.”
