MONCTON, NB. March 26, 2020 – Dovico Software, Inc. has announced that the company’s Board of Directors has appointed Shelley Butler as President and Chief Executive Officer. She will assume day-to-day leadership of the company.

“It is with great pleasure and honour that I appoint Mrs. Shelley Butler as CEO of Dovico.

Shelley is a great leader and demonstrates courage, humility, innovation, in making decisions while being the kindest person I know.”
With over a 30+ year career, Doucet has started 18 companies all aimed at fostering enthusiasm and talent through local investment.
