Dustyn Lanz appointed as new CEO at Canada's Responsible Investment Association

The Responsible Investment Association on Tuesday announced the appointment of Dustyn Lanz as incoming Chief Executive Officer, effective January 1, 2018. Current CEO Deb Abbey will retire following a five-year tenure in the role.

Lanz currently serves as Chief Operating Officer, and has worked with the RIA since 2013. He has played a central role in growing the RIA’s membership base and strengthening its brand and communications initiatives over the last four years, the RIA said in a statement.

"We are very pleased to appoint Dustyn as the next CEO of the RIA," said Jason Milne, Chair of the RIA's board of directors and Vice President, Corporate Governance & Responsible Investment with RBC Global Asset Management. "Dustyn's industry expertise, market understanding and passion for responsible investment will build on the success that Deb has helped the RIA to achieve." He added, "Deb has done an absolutely incredible job of leading this organization since 2013, and we wish her the very best in retirement."

To ensure a smooth transition, Abbey will work closely with Lanz until her retirement at the end of the year.

Although Lanz has only been working in the RI field for four years, he has done an excellent job promoting responsible investment to Canadians, under the able tutelage of Deb Abbey. SRI Monitor believes he will be a strong addition to the world of responsible investing in Canada.
