“There is a strong connection between being responsible stewards of capital and having good ESG practices. Onex has been a responsible investor since our founding and we’re excited to welcome Judy to the team to further enhance our ESG efforts,” said Bobby Le Blanc, President of Onex and Head of Onex Partners.

“Our intention is to not only create investment value, but to have a more positive impact on the industries we invest in and the communities we serve. Judy will play an important role in the continued success of our firm.”

Ms. Cotte is a globally recognized expert on ESG and responsible investment, with the last twelve years of her career being exclusively focused in this area.

“We’ve seen positive momentum in the evolution of ESG practices,” said Ms. Cotte. “Onex has an opportunity to build on its strong foundation and create real value and drive strategic change directly from our own efforts and through partnering with the companies we invest in. I’m pleased to be joining a team that shares my belief that good ESG practices can have a significant positive impact for all stakeholders.”

Ms. Cotte will begin her new role in July and will report to Mr. Le Blanc.
