OxProx Appoints Inaugural CEO, Dustyn Lanz

OxProx, a social venture spun out from Oxford University Innovation, is pleased to announce the appointment of Dustyn Lanz as its inaugural Chief Executive Officer. Dustyn was previously the CEO of Canada’s Responsible Investment Association, and he most recently held the position of Senior Advisor with ESG Global Advisors Inc.

“It is a tremendous honour to lead OxProx towards its mission of amplifying investor stewardship,” said Lanz. “Proxy voting transparency is an important part of this mission, and we intend to facilitate a new era of transparency by developing the world’s first-ever public database of proxy voting records so everyone can easily access, analyze, and compare the proxy voting records of institutional investors in one convenient location, free of charge. We are actively seeking partners from the investment, foundation, and NGO sectors to help us bring this public good to life. Interested parties are invited to get in touch.”

In alignment with its mission, OxProx provides proxy voting data services to institutional investors to help them with peer analysis, benchmarking, and other data-driven intelligence in support of investment stewardship. Revenues earned from these services support the growth and development of the public database.

Looking to the future, OxProx is engaging with partners at the University of Oxford to collaborate on the development of research and tools that aim to bring more investors into the voting system, in order to support voting outcomes that are good for shareholders and society.
