Richard Longdon, the CEO at Cambridge software business AVEVA, is remaining as a Business Weekly Awards judge despite leaving his post in December.

Longdon intends to continue in business in part-time roles and says he is keen to continue supporting the Awards, of which he has been an integral part for the best part of a decade. He has been a judge since AVEVA won the Business of the Year crown in 2016.

AVEVA is a success story in its own right. In recent days its UK share price has risen almost 14p to close to the year high at 1,995.72p and the company is one of Cambridge’s 15 billion dollar businesses with a current market cap of £1.28bn ($1.66bn).

FTSE 250 company AVEVA provides engineering design, information management solutions and CAD/CAM software, including specialised technology consulting services for the plant, power and marine industries.

It grew out of the government-funded Computer-Aided Design Centre which was established in 1967. The company has substantially expanded its suite of technologies in recent times.

Longdon rejoins experienced and long serving judges for the Awards including Sir Michael Marshall, Hermann Hauser, Sherry Coutu, Charles Cotton and Harriet Fear, supplemented this year by DisplayLink finance chief John Lee, Cambridge Wireless CEO Bob Driver and representatives of the sponsors.
