Sylvie Génier

Sales Consultant

Mention media sales in Kapuskasing and inevitably the name Sylvie Génier will come up.

Sylvie has 15 years of experience in newspaper ad sales and is a tremendous addition to the La Presse Communautaire/The Community Press team.

Her nickname “Soleil” (Sunny), perfectly describes her disposition when dealing with clients and she is looking forward to reconnecting with previous customers as well as forming relationships with new ones.

As her title would imply, if you need it advertised, Sylvie’s your girl.

Sylvie is fluently bilingual and ready to help you shine a spotlight on your business.

She can be reached at: sales@lapressecommunautaire.ca or by dialing 705-371-2127 or 705-337-5162.

Nicole Veilleux

Graphic Artist/Classified Ads

Despite having 23 years of experience in local media, Nicole Veilleux isn’t a name everyone might quickly associate with the newspaper business here in Kapuskasing.

That’s because for many of those year’s Nicole was a graphic artist, quietly working behind the scenes to make sure advertisers’ needs were met when it came to ad design.

Now, Nicole has returned not only to that role, but will also be the Classified Ad Representative for your new, locally-owned and operated newspaper.

Nicole can be reached at: classifieds@lapressecommunautaire.ca or by dialing: 705-371-2158.

Heading into her 18th year at the station, she will also be lending a hand to the Community Press.

Knowledgeable in all things event planning and overall day-to-day affairs, she is a valuable addition to our ever-growing team.
