One Team

François Rioux

François Rioux

President of Edphy International

With a bachelor’s degree in communications and graduate from the National School of Humor in 2003, François joined the Edphy family that same year. He has occupied almost all of the positions offered at Edphy, and has been involved in the various spheres of the organization. He now holds a master’s degree in business administration and is president of Edphy International, focusing primarily on the marketing, finance and development aspects of the company. François is also a part-time lecturer at HEC business school.

Marilyse Richard-Robert

Marilyse Richard-Robert

Executive Director

Former elementary teacher, Marilyse learned to combine animation (one of her greatest passions) and education for several years while teaching and occupying different positions in camps during the summer. Since 2014, she decided to focus solely on her duties as Executive Director and is primarily responsible for managing the marketing sector, human resources and operations. Now mother of a pretty little girl and an adorable little boy, her goal is to ensure that young children (and the not so young ones) live an enriching experience that will make an impact on their lives forever.

Lara Pettinicchio

Former elementary teacher, Lara has always had a passion for working with children, as well as the necessary leadership skills to work in management. Having joined our team in 2012, Lara has occupied many different positions at Edphy, and as of 2017, alongside our executive director, her role is to focus on the development of our programs, operations and human resources management.

Yan D’Amours

Yan D’Amours

Summer camp director and of national development

Pioneer in training services, Yan is very familiar with the word of camps! Having worked as a camp counsellor, director, and coach since 2001, Yan was the director of one of the largest multi-site camps of Laval, until 2017 before working as a project manager in the certification department of the Quebec Association of camps. His experience paired with his dynamic personality, his creativity and his knowledge of camps will certainly bring an inspiring energy to the summer camp and nature center.

Having been active in sports and recreation for several years, specifically as a ski school director, Guillaume joined our team in 2015. He now works closely with the President and ensures the sales of Edphy International’s programs and services locally and internationally.

Lise Richard

Lise Richard

Customer Service Manager

Newly retired from the Commission scolaire des Laurentides, Lise has spent the past years at the reception of the École Hôtelière des Laurentides. Eager to stay active and work with the public, she decided, to our delight, to join our team and to take over as our customer service manager. Warm, attentive and experienced with young people and clients, she will be able to advise and reassure you whether this is your first experience with camp or if you’re a regular!

Andréa Léon

Andréa Léon

Accounting technician

With a DEP in accounting, Andréa has developed a real passion for numbers and for the creation of tools allowing businesses to become more efficient. A mother of two, she already managed a home daycare before devoting herself to accounting in various large companies.
In search of a more family-friendly work environment, she joined us in 2020. Originally from Mexico, trilingual and extremely bubbly, she is an important asset to our team, especially in this period of growth and international development.
