Remembering Benoit Lauzé (1964 – 2020)

In Memoriam: It is with profound sadness we observe the passing of Benoit Lauzé, after a long struggle with cancer.

Benoit was a much-admired member of the investment community, and a respected member of the IIAC Board of Directors. His presence will be profoundly missed.

Benoit spent much of his career at CIBC Wood Gundy in Toronto. After a move back to Montreal, he joined the Investment Banking Department of CIBC, gradually assuming different leadership roles, before returning to Toronto as Head of CIBC’s Equity Capital Markets desk.

In both his professional and personal life Benoit was known for his enthusiasm and passion, his keen mind, and his collaborative ways.

His contributions to the functioning of the IIAC board will continue to be felt in the ongoing camaraderie and dedication of its members.

The IIAC wishes to express their deepest condolences to Benoit’s family.
