From Bay Street to Tech Startup – Mobovivo hires CFO

Calgary’s Mobovivo announced this week the appointment of Stephen Butler as its first Chief Financial Officer.  Butler brings almost 15 years of financial expertise and business building experience straight from Bay Street.

“Stephen is a perfect fit for a dynamic company like Mobovivo at this stage in our development,” said Trevor Doerksen, Mobovivo‘s founder and CEO.  “His financial and deal experience are essential as we work through our next stage of growth and financing. He’s been in the trenches as a business manager in highly fluid competitive situations, where he’s displayed the right mix of creativity and commitment to the vision.”

Most recently Butler was with the TMX Group and key member of its “IPO team”, guiding the development of the growth and diversification strategy with which the company went public in 2002. Butler subsequently built and led a corporate development team that oversaw the evaluation, negotiation and implementation of several investments that took TMX beyond its traditional core. This included the 2004 acquisition of NGX, Canada’s leading energy exchange and the largest physical clearing facility in North America.

Mobovivo is still in hiring mode – this week they posted an App Developer position on the Techvibes Job Board.
