Lynne Lavery – General Manager

Lynne Lavery began working for the Journal du Pontiac in 1995, bringing more than fifteen years of small business, design and accounting experience with her. Currently as General Manager, her duties include overseeing the day to day issues that arise, holding regular sales and editorial meetings and dealing with the finances of the paper.

Lynne lives in Shawville. She is active in her community and beyond, with involvement as treasurer for the Women’s Wellness Network and for Bourse Pontiac. She is also a business and management consultant of two affiliated papers, the Bulletin d’Aylmer and the West Quebec Post, located in the Aylmer sector of the Ville de Gatineau.

“Working with two different teams, between 30 and 50 individuals, and in two different communities can be very demanding,” she says. “But, it is also really rewarding, working with people who are committed to the job of putting out the best newspapers we can.”

Dana Bertrand – Secretary, Accounts Receivable, circulation manager, sales rep for Shawville and area, classified department.

Dana Bertrand has been with the Pontiac Journal since 1995. She grew up in Fort Coulonge and was raised in a business oriented family where she learned to deal with the public from a young age.

Dana has many important roles with the newspaper: she is the first voice you will hear when you call for general information and the first face you will see when you drop into the office during regular business hours. Aside from these front line duties Dana is in charge of accounts receivable, classified ads and circulation records. She also works as a sales consultant for Shawville, Bristol, Quyon, and Renfrew businesses. It’s no wonder she says: “I enjoy working and serving the public. One of my strengths is the ability to multi-task and I like to keep busy at all times.”

You can contact Dana at any time about advertising in the newspaper or in our annual projects: the Télé Pontiac Big Print phone book or West Quebec Cottage Living magazine. She can be reached at
