VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ - Uranium Royalty Corp. ("URC" or the "Company") regrets to announce that Lady Barbara Judge, a director and chair of the Company's Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, has passed away.
Amir Adnani, Chairman, commented: "On behalf of the board and the URC team, I would like to extend our deepest condolences to Lady Judge's family and to everyone who was fortunate enough to know her. Lady Judge was a trailblazer in every sense, with a long career of precedent-setting appointments in Washington and London. She was the youngest person to become a Commissioner of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and Chair of both the United Kingdom's Atomic Energy Authority and the Pension Protection Fund. For her many contributions to the nuclear and financial industries, she was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 2010. Lady Judge was equally prolific in charitable causes and was a former trustee of the Royal Academy of Arts and Dementia UK. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with and know Lady Judge and for her insights as a most valued member of our board."
Scott Melbye, President and CEO commented: "We are deeply saddened by Lady Judge's passing. She was an instrumental leader and supporter of the nuclear industry, having made profound impacts in the United Kingdom and globally, including through her advisory roles at the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corp. and the Tokyo Electric Power Company. She believed nuclear energy is critical to energy and national security, and that it has a major role to play in the world's carbon reductions. On a personal level, her spirit and optimism were always inspiring. Most recently I recall her response to news of continued nuclear energy growth at our August board meetings, saying it was 'music to my ears'. She will be dearly missed both professionally and personally."
