About us

Early on, Dee Thibodeau was given a great gift from her father. That gift had no limits... she could do anything or be anything she wanted. Later, her brother-in-law became her mentor and that sparked her leadership and entrepreneurial spirit. Before starting Charter Solutions, Dee held numerous CEO positions in software, training, and EDI companies where she was able to expand them to the point of profitability and in some cases sale.

In 1997, however, Dee felt it was her time to soar. She wanted to start a consulting company that would be built on trust and innovation. One that would create long-lasting partnerships and relationships with clients. And once Dee decides to do something, she moves fast. In two short months she was up and running with a little consulting company that had big growth goals, She called that company Charter Solutions.
