Lady Barbara Judge, CBE, is a trained commercial lawyer with British and American citizenship. Her successful international career has included serving as a senior executive, chairman, and non-executive director in the private and public sectors.

Lady Judge received a B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania and Juris Doctor with honors from New York University Law School, eventually serving as a partner in a major U.S. law firm specializing in corporate and financial transactions.

In 1980, Lady Judge was appointed as the youngest ever commissioner of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Thereafter, she was appointed as the first woman executive director of Samuel Montagu and, subsequently, News International, among other firms.

Lady Judge joined the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority as director in 2002, became its chairman in 2004, and was reappointed in 2007. Upon completion of two terms, she was appointed chairman emeritus in 2010, the same year she was named as chairman of the U.K. Pension Protection Fund.

In addition, Lady Judge is chairman of the Energy Institute of University College London and the U.K. Global Nuclear Initiative. She is also chairman of the London Middle East Institute and a member of the Trilateral Commission and the Council of Foreign Relations.

Lady Judge was the first woman member of the Board of Overseers of the Wharton School of Business and is currently a member of its executive board for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. She became a member of New York Institute of Technology's Board of Trustees in 2011.

She is a non-executive director of Statoil ASA (Norway), NV Bekaert SA (Belgium), and Magna International Inc. (Canada). She is also a member of the U.A.E.
