It is with great sadness that we share the news that Sir Paul Judge, the Chairman of the British-Serbian Chamber of Commerce, passed away. We send our deep condolences to all his family upon this sad occasion.
Sir Paul Judge was Chairman of the British-Serbian Chamber for 5 years, during which period he gave freely and enthusiastically of his time to promote better business and cultural links between the two nations.
Despite a demanding diary of non- executive and honorary engagements, he travelled regularly to Serbia to meet government and trade representatives. In the UK, he promoted enhanced relations between young Serbian scholars and his alma mater of Trinity College Cambridge, whilst the Chamber’s annual Christmas reception, hosted at Sir Paul’s London home became a much sought after invitation.
For those of us who knew Sir Paul Judge professionally, he was a man of enormous warmth, great sensitivity, and valued judgement, who shall indeed be missed.
We have been asked by His Excellency Dr Ognjen Pribicevic, Ambassador of Serbia to the UK to add his words as follows;
“Sir Paul Judge first visited Belgrade as a young student, and began a relationship that has spanned many years and tumultuous events in our region. He was a great advocate for our country, and a true friend to the people of Serbia.
On behalf of my fellow Serbs, I convey our sadness in the loss of such a friend to our Nation, but give thanks for the privilege of his acquaintance and untiring support to our country.”
The family is planning a public memorial service in due course. We hope you will join us in commemorating and celebrating Sir Paul Judge’s life.
