The Ward of Tower in the City of London has four Common Councilmen who represent the ward. From left to right above we are Roger Chadwick, Anne Fairweather, Marianne Fredericks and James Tumbridge.
Very sadly our Tower Ward Alderman, Sir Paul Judge, died on 21st May, and with him we lost one of the most colourful and interesting members of the Corporation of London.
Sir Paul had a varied career and will be remembered as both a philanthropist and an entrepreneur. The latter was particularly important to Sir Paul, and he was a significant contributor to the creation of The Guild of Entrepreneurs helping them successfully petitioned for Guild status in 2014. Its motto is Dare, Create, Succeed are words Sir Paul very much believed in.
Sir Paul’s business career enjoyed great success particularly in the food industry, where he led the management buy out that formed Premier Brands. He also served as director general of the Conservative Party organisation from 1992 to 1995 and his generous donations to Cambridge University founded its business school: Judge Business School.
Those lucky to know him will recall his humour, warmth and remarkable knowledge of the history our great city. We were lucky to serve in Tower Ward beside Sir Paul, we shall miss him.
There will shortly be a family funeral but a more public memorial service in celebration of his life will be arranged at a later date. Details concerning this memorial service will be posted on this site for those with a connection with Tower ward who would like to attend.
An obituary has also been published by The Telegraph.
