COOKHAM, UK: The Chartered Institute of Marketing, which claims over 50,000 members worldwide, has appointed a new president: Sir Paul Judge (pictured), a former board planning director at Cadbury Schweppes who led the buyout of its foods division to form Premier Brands

These days an avid collector of business honoraria, Judge also presides over the Association of MBAs and the Chartered Management Institute.

Additionally, he serves as senior warden of the Worshipful Company of Marketers, chairman of the Businessdynamics Trust and of the British-North American Committee. While during the other twelve hours he acts as deputy chairman of the American Management Association and a trustee of the Royal Institution.

More lucratively, he is also a director of Standard Bank Group of South Africa, Tempur-Pedic International of Kentucky, and of the Schroder Income Growth Fund.

Says Judge: "I am delighted to give my support to the Chartered Institute of Marketing and to its mission.

"I am particularly interested in promoting the Institute's objective of putting best marketing practice more prominently on the boardroom and government agenda."
