Tony Judd

Managing Director UK&I

South East Leadership Board

Tony Judd is passionate about new technology which is why he’s been involved in networks and telecoms for over 30 years. This is an industry that constantly evolves and changes, and he says it’s now more exciting than it’s ever been which is why he’s at Verizon.

Tony says: “We’re at the forefront of this transformation and creating a more connected, digital world.
While my focus is on our UK&I market—globally, we’ve invested over $145bn in product development since forming in 2000. We’re always looking at how we can help businesses do more with technologies like AI, machine learning and automation.

Today, we’re empowering enterprises with next-gen platforms like private 5G and Network-as-a-Service. That’s why we’re a Gartner Magic Quadrant Leader for Network Services and Security, and why we’ve held those accreditations for the past 15 years.”

Verizon believes in creating long-term, trust-based relationships. Tony encourages everyone he works with to be completely open and candid when discussing projects as it enables them to clarify exactly where their clients are, where they want to be, and how they can help them get there.

Tony says: “Corporate Social Responsibility is an issue that’s very close to my heart. As a team, we constantly smash our volunteering targets. I’m so proud and humbled by what my colleagues have done for local causes.
I passionately believe in equality for all. That’s why I work so closely with programmes like Women of the World, to help fix the gender imbalance in the tech industry. I also use my position to give people a platform for change, by mentoring and coaching young employees.

My mission is to help people to be their best, maximise our relationships, deliver the right outcomes for our clients, and ensure that Verizon’s global vision is enacted at a local level. That includes creating a more digital world and doing business the right way.”
