News ->Lord Paul installed as the Chancellor of The University of Westminster

(10 October 2006)

Lord Swraj PaulLord Paul of Marylebone has been installed as the inaugural Chancellor of the University of Westminster at a ceremony today at London’s Banqueting House (10 October 2006). Indian-born businessman Lord Paul, 75, who is chairman of Caparo Group, a global steel, engineering and property development business, said he was “proud” to be appointed Chancellor.

In his acceptance speech he said: “It is with tremendous pride and deep emotion that I am responding today to the call of destiny which sometimes takes us in a direction we might never have imagined. I am proud of the confidence you have placed in me by choosing me as the first Chancellor of the University of Westminster.

“Through my businesses – and politically and socially – I work extensively in global markets and I will be looking to transfer my knowledge and contacts to develop the University.

“The University of Westminster has a massive culturally diverse grounding and this is something I applaud,” Lord Paul told the 350-strong audience.

University Vice-Chancellor Dr Geoffrey Copland said: “The University is honoured that Lord Paul has consented to be our Chancellor. His background, achievements and interests overlap extensively with those of the University: London; international matters; business; a burning desire to provide opportunities for all to gain education to the highest level possible; and support for excellence in achievement.

“Above all besides his business, political and personal achievements, Lord Paul demonstrates a real personal warmth and humility, characteristics which I hope will be imbued in our graduates alongside their own professional and personal achievements,” added Dr Copland.
