Board Members

Sybil Dahan, ICD.D, Director & Board Chair

President and Chair Altius Healthcare (division of Devonian Health Group)

Biochemist by training, this visionary leader recognized, early on, her passion for marketing and began her career in Montreal as a pharmaceutical representative. She eventually led an international career, first in Chicago and then as the GM and Chairman of Abbott Scandinavia, in Sweden. Back in Montreal, as President of Triton Pharma, she mobilized a team, provided a vision and performed beyond expectations ultimately leading to the acquisition of the company. She decided then to become an entrepreneur and co-founded Aspri Pharma Canada, in 2014, and subsequently repeated this endeavour with Altius Healthcare, now a division of Devonian Health Group.

What motivates her? Working with small businesses, putting them on the path of growth and establishing a stable and performing team. The strength of her leadership relies on combining her passion for science with the art of marketing, while ensuring transparency and listening skills remain at the core of her values. She applies this approach both with commercial businesses as well as non-for-profit organizations for which she holds the position of Chair of the Board.

It is with this passion and drive that she decided to join the Board of Directors of CCC, having recently learned that the information and accessibility to services available to people affected by a concussion is almost non-existent in Canada.
