After a long and successful career at the heart of the R. Howard Webster Foundation, Howard Davidson will be retiring on November 30, 2023.  His outstanding dedication, tireless efforts and significant contributions over the past 44 years have left an indelible mark on the Foundation, the Webster family, and the community at large.  Countless organizations and institutions whose work is focused on the betterment of Canadian society have benefitted from the Foundation’s support under his guidance.  Howard’s steadfast leadership, vision and wisdom, in business and philanthropy alike, will remain as important pillars moving forward.

Following an extensive search, we are thrilled to announce that Sacha Haque will be assuming the role of President of the R. Howard Webster Foundation. Sacha is an accomplished leader with professional experience that spans over 20 years.  She has been an integral part of Sagard since 2017, as a Partner and General Counsel, and spent nine years with Power Corporation of Canada prior to that.  Sacha began her career as a corporate lawyer at Dentons, a global law firm.  As a result of her involvement with Power Corporation of Canada’s giving program, and her participation as Chair or Director on various not-for-profit Boards, Sacha looks forward to embracing the Foundation’s philanthropic mission. We hold every confidence that Sacha will be an invaluable addition to the Foundation and the family.
