Valérie Coutu appointed President of JOVACO Solutions
We are proud to announce the appointment of Valérie Coutu as President of JOVACO Solutions. As part of the second generation leading the business, she will step aside from her role as Vice President of Sales and Marketing to take over from Jean-Claude Coutu, President and Founder of JOVACO Solutions.
“It is an honor for me to follow in my father’s footsteps and to move this company forward with the solid foundations that he has built,” said Ms. Coutu following the announcement of her appointment at a recent event at the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium in Montreal on Tuesday, January 28, 2020. “35 years in the IT world is quite a feat. In a world that is constantly changing, JOVACO has always been able to evolve and adapt. We are excited to see how far JOVACO can go with the latest technologies and solutions available and by always striving to push ourselves further.”
Mr. Jonatan Coutu, General Manager of JOVACO, will continue to oversee the company’s overall operations and will be very present in managing this transition. “JOVACO is currently at a crossroads,” he said, adding to Valérie’s words. “This generational transfer is an opportunity for us to redefine the vision, values and objectives of JOVACO as well as the road that we have to take to get there.”
Mr. Jean-Claude Coutu will now contribute his wealth of expertise in a mentoring role, thus accompanying the JOVACO team in this new direction. He remains Chairman of JOVACO’s administrative board alongside Valérie and Jonatan Coutu. “The complicity between Valérie and Jonatan has always been a key element in JOVACO’s success, and I am proud to now pass the torch on to them. Valérie is constantly on the lookout for new opportunities and is always involved in all levels of the company as well as with our business partners. I can’t wait to see where her vision will bring JOVACO.”
Valérie initially joined the team of experts at JOVACO in 2005 as a CRM Consultant. She acquired extensive knowledge that has allowed her to recommend the best solutions to meet the needs of companies and to supervise their implementation. It is her ability to grasp the needs and requirements of our clients in order to find and propose innovative and efficient solutions that make her the ideal person to take over the leadership of JOVACO.
