He was the editor of the magazine from 2002 to 2005 and previously headed the Revue Commerce. He also hosted the show Finances on the TVA network for three years. A graduate of Laval University in journalism and political science, he began his career in 1977 as a radio and TV journalist for Radio-Canada in the Gaspé Peninsula, before moving on to the national network in Montreal.
