Executive Management

Marie-Eve Ducharme

President & CEO

  • Graduated in Physics from the University of Montreal and in Management from Hautes Études Commerciales, HEC Montreal, Marie-Eve Ducharme specialized in Innovation Management from the École de Technologie Superieure, before adding 15 years of experience in the management of new solutions at the cutting edge of technology.

  • With solid management experience with academic and private institutions, Marie-Eve Ducharme successfully launches her 2nd high technology start-up company, Nüvü Camēras. Initially a manager of various projects at the University of Montreal, she was then physicist and project manager at Photon etc., an innovative company specialized in hyperspectral imaging and spectroscopy instruments, where she quickly became the COO.

  • In addition to leading the development of EMCCD products since 2008, she has successfully led more than 12 major development projects in advanced optical instrumentation while respecting budgets accorded by the National Council of Research of Canada and the Canadian Space Agency, amongst others, totalling more than $15 million entrusted to her management. In 2017, the Young Chamber of Commerce of Montreal awards her the International Leader Award.

  • Her success led her to give back to the next generation of entrepreneurs by co-chairing the Montreal Inc. Foundation’s fundraising campaign, an organization that has been a springboard for Nüvü Caméras in terms of its leading financial partner and business network. She also serves on the board of the Montreal Innovation District and Optonique, Quebec’s center of excellence in optics and photonics.

Olivier Daigle

Vice-President & CTO

  • Graduated in Electrical Engineering at the School of Technology Superior, Olivier Daigle then knocks on the door of the University of Montreal and undertakes, in 2002, a Master’s degree in astrophysics. Who says digital cameras also says CCD chips. However, if the chips installed in these devices offer satisfactory performance in common uses, they have precision limits when it comes to scientific accuracy. These are the limits and their causes – especially the “noise” induced by electrical voltage – that Olivier Daigle studies

  • as part of his Master’s degree. His research then takes the form of a job at Photon etc. coupled with an industrial doctoral scholarship with the University of Montreal and the Université de Provence. During his Ph.D., Olivier Daigle designed the CCCP, the technological secret behind the performance of Nüvü Cameras products.

  • With more than 40 publications and contributions to scientific conferences on EMCCD technology, Olivier Daigle is recognized as a world leader in EMCCD technology. Radio Canada and La Presse awarded Dr. Olivier Daigle Personality of the Year 2010 in the Science and Technology category for his significant contribution to tomorrow’s discoveries.
