Sylvain Raymond

Obsessed and inspired by all things engine-powered ever since he was a young boy, Sylvain Raymond started his career as an automobile journalist in 2002, when he was brought in to manage Autonet.ca, one of Canada's leading automotive websites for generalists. He holds a degree in Business Administration and has been a member of the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) for 12 years. In 2007, he joined the team at Le Guide de l'Auto and in doing so fulfilled a childhood dream: contributing to the prestigious Guide de l'auto, the automotive Bible in Quebec.

As a shareholder of LC Media and the Director of Strategic Development, Sylvain oversees the content for all of Le Guide de l'Auto's platforms, while continuing to write automotive reviews, his true passion.

When Sylvain gets off the beaten track, he plunges right into the water, writing for The Boat Guide. Since 2012, he's been navigating the waves as Editor in Chief of Le Guide du Bateau, Quebec's leading boat publication.
