Burlington, ON Ivara Corp., a provider of asset reliability solutions, has appointed Gerry Bleau its new chief executive officer. He assumes the position from Ivara’s founder, Bill Shaw, who will retain his role as president.

“Gerry is a seasoned executive with an impressive track record of expanding market opportunities in leading organizations such as J.D. Edwards. He has experience in the CEO role and led his last company to a successful IPO,” says Bob Mee, Ivara’s board chair. “The board is pleased that Gerry has accepted this new challenge and we look forward to his leadership driving Ivara’s next stage of growth.”

“As a result of Bill’s vision, Ivara is recognized today as a leader in the reliability solutions market,” says Bleau. “I am excited to be heading the company through a period of fast growth and I am committed to carry forward Bill’s vision to make Ivara’s asset reliability solution a key corporate strategy of every capital-intensive company.”

“Since joining Ivara as COO six months ago, Gerry has quickly proven his value in creating opportunities for market leadership, most notably with his handling of our recent acquisition of Aladon,” says Shaw. “I am confident that with Gerry as my successor, Ivara will continue its rapid growth.”
