Anaergia Inc., a global leader in renewable fuels, fertilizer, and end-to-end solutions announced a significant leadership transition on June 24, 2024. Assaf Onn, a member of the Board of Directors, has been appointed as the acting Chief Executive Officer, following a mutual decision between the Board and former CEO Brett Hodson to transition leadership.

Mr. Onn’s appointment follows the closure of a significant investment deal on April 1, 2024, where Marny Investissement SA, through its subsidiary, completed the second tranche of a strategic investment totaling C$40.8 million.

Dr. Andrew Benedek, Founder and Chair of the Board, stated that the investment from Marny Investissement SA signifies a new chapter for Anaergia and it is natural for Marny to take a leadership role. He expressed confidence in Assaf Onn’s ability to lead the company during this transition and thanked Brett Hodson for his service.
