A keen observer of national and international trends in tourism, sports, and entertainment marketing, Benoit has led numerous projects for organizations and companies across Quebec. He has sat on strategic committees and developed various marketing plans and programs, drawing on this experience to develop the collaborative approach that has made Oasis so successful on assignments involving multiple partners.

Noémie Steben-Roy Account manager
Account manager at Oasis, Noémie is a communications buff.
She earned her bachelor’s degree in public communications with an advertising concentration from Université Laval. During her studies, Noémie became involved in the Jeux de la communication games, where she excelled as a delegate in the “Event Creation” trial. She has a wealth of valuable experiences, having volunteered for Festif 2016 and SOCOM, for which she continues to volunteer. Flexible, organized, independent, and driven, Noémie thrives on new challenges and exciting projects, so she’s a perfect fit for Oasis!
Éliane Brochu Coordinator
Éliane, who recently joined our team, got her degree in Communications specialized in Public relations at Université Laval in 2014.
In the past few years, she acquired her knowledge by working on different projects related to sports events, such as, the Rogers Cup Tournament and the Montreal Canadiens games at the Bell Center.
Her realizations in the past few years contribute to her excellent comprehension of the public relations dynamics as well as her keen sense of organization, all of which she uses for every project she works on.
Michèle Rochette Financial controller
At Oasis, Michèle is in charge of the administration, and she does it with panache! She worked a lot in the community sphere during her career so she quickly understood the specificities of agencies and adapted easily to the pace of the marketing world.
With over 10 years of working with the complete accounting cycle, numbers don’t have any more secret for Michèle! Since her arrival, she demonstrated her strong control over her records, ensuring effective follow-up to meet her goals and targets. Michèle has more than 30 years of experience in customer service, and this is clearly reflected in the time she takes to tend to the needs of our clients and collaborators. We’re very lucky to have her with us and we would never want to go without her!
Hugo J.-S. Galland Vice president, creative
As VP creative, Hugo orchestrates the creative product of the agency.
From Kronenbourg to Éduc alcool, not to mention the SAQ, Health Canada, Cora, Yuzu, Opto-réseau, Wawanesa, Toyota and SOS conjugal violence, Hugo has contributed to the growth of major brands both in Quebec and nationally. Certainly, awards are good for the ego and experience reassures everyone (clients included). But frankly, in this profession, it’s popping the cork on our collective creativity (clients included) and finding out what bubbles up that’s the most rewarding. To do this, you have to be able to reinvent yourself, and welcome starting from zero and not accepting reflexive responses on every project. For Hugo, talent is great but means nothing without a lot of sweat. He recently found out that, in the tourist industry, to get people to the mountains he had to think differently. So he decided to move the mountains to the people. More details? Let’s talk.
Yan Larivière Artistic director
Yan has over 20 years of experience in art direction, advertising, and graphic design.

Thomas Patry Content Creator
It’s after a 4-month internship among us last summer that Thomas was welcomed to the team as our new content creator. Having learned a lot on social media marketing, photography and filmmaking, he’s now properly equipped to start his professional career.
Finishing up his degree in Communication at Université Laval, this young filmmaker quickly proved himself and his talents are now essential to the success of many projects. From copywriting to filming and editing videos, he’s an asset that we couldn’t dispense from anymore. Thomas also spent his last winter as an intern among the Marketing team at Le Massif de Charlevoix. He was thus predisposed to work in the world of skiing and tourism. His camera always at hand, he’s always ready to capture the greatest moments for Oasis!
