Couvelier replaces Director Joseph Montgomery and joins CEO Robert Foo, President Rob Bennett, Vice President of Product Development Troy Kusy and Secretary and CFO Gabriel Tsang on the Municipal Solutions Group Board of Directors.
Couvelier brings an important focus to Municipal from his public sector experience. He served as Minister of Finance for the Province of British Columbia (BC) and as Mayor of Saanich Municipality for 10 years. It is from his experience as Mayor that he understands the need for products like CityView, and for the necessity of e-Government initiatives to provide more responsive service to the community, and to deal with the constant off-loading from senior levels of government.
