Welcome to Citivine
CITIVINE was originally founded as a partnership in 2008 by Ralph Mefleh and Michel Berbari, both graduates of the University of Ottawa in marketing and finance respectively. The two partners opened their unique marketing and web design business from a location at 75 Montreal Road, in the former city of Vanier, which is now part of the greater City of Ottawa.
From their early humble beginnings in 2008, Ralph and Michel completed many marketing, web design and application development projects and built up a loyal clientele both locally and from other parts of the country. From 2008 to 2013, they continued to establish and build the CITIVINE brand while growing their capabilities and production team. In April of 2013, the partnership evolved into an incorporated entity, 85006531 CANADA INC., with two distinct operating divisions, namely CITIVINE WEB DESIGN AND CITIVE MEDIA and continued to operate under those brands until Sept 1st 2016.
On September 1st 2016, the assets and brand name of the two CITIVINE operating divisions were sold by 85006531 CANADA INC. to 1597784 ONTARIO LTD. Ralph and Michel subsequently phased out their involvement with CITIVINE in order to focus on their new software development company, Clientivo Inc, which is located in Montreal, QC.
For over ten years, 1597784 ONTARIO LTD. has operated as DION VALLEE, an accounting, tax and financial services firm. Owned and operated by two very accomplished and experienced entrepreneurs, the husband and wife team of K. Bruce Donnelly and Francine Allaire and their supporting staff have for more than decade continuously served the needs of many local individuals, small business owners and medium sized enterprises.
With the purchase and acquisition of the CITIVINE assets and brand, 1597784 ONTARIO LTD has grown and expanded its capabilities to better serve its clients. The company now operates as two separate and distinct operation divisions, namely its accounting, tax and financial services division, DION VALLEE and CITIVINE, its digital marketing, website design and development and IT support division.
In addition to its principals, the company has since recruited some new management talent both in the accounting and web design divisions. You can check our team bios below.
