Career

Cadbury Schweppes

He spent the first thirteen years of his business career with Cadbury Schweppes, working initially in the Overseas Group finance department and becoming Group Deputy Finance Director in 1978 at the age of 28. He was then Managing Director of Cadbury Schweppes Kenya which had three factories and 600 employees. In 1982 he was appointed as Managing Director of Cadbury Typhoo, which had 3,000 employees and a turnover of £150 million. In 1984 he became Group Planning Director and a member of the Group Executive Committee.

Premier Brands

In 1985 he initiated and led the £97 million buyout of the UK, Irish and French food businesses of Cadbury Schweppes to form Premier Brands. The company was very successful, winning the 1989 Grocer/IFE Award as having "the best overall performance of any British food company". Premier Brands was sold for £310 million in 1989 and he then moved into the public and political sectors. During this time Sir Paul was named one of the "Top 40 Under 40". Premier Foods, as it is now known, has become the largest food manufacturer in the UK.

He subsequently became a government-appointed Member of the Milk Marketing Board and Chairman of Food from Britain, which led to his being voted the 1992 Food Industry Personality of the Year.

Conservative Party

He was Director General of the Conservative Party, a full-time appointment for which he chose to take no remuneration, from 1992 until 1995 when the then Party Chairman described him as "the person primarily responsible for improving the management of the Conservative Party organisation and for achieving the turnaround in our financial fortunes". The Party's overdraft was reduced from £19 million when he took over to only £2 million in the 1995-6 accounts. In 1995 he transferred to the Cabinet Office as a Ministerial Adviser, responsible for policy issues such as competitiveness, deregulation, privatisation and information technology strategy until just before the 1997 General Election. He is currently President of the Mid-Worcestershire Conservative Association.

In 1995 Judge sued the Guardian newspaper for libel following a front page article concerning his involvement with party donations obtained from fugitive tycoon Asil Nadir. The article alleged that Judge and others had attempted to scupper inquiries into the donation using "old tricks". Judge's barrister David Eady QC maintained "This is a trial about Paul Judge personally, not the Conservative Party." and that the article was written " [for] the purpose of sensational anti-Conservative scandal-mongering". The jury found against Judge by a majority of 10-2, and it was the judgement of the court that he pay legal bills in excess of £200,000.
