The Chancellor’s prize is given every year to a Roehampton graduate who has shown outstanding career success.

Professor Sharon Mavin, Director of the Business School said: “Stephen is a hugely valued member of the Roehampton community, a passionate supporter of our students and a great example of where a Roehampton education can lead you. He is also an inspiring business leader: showing that you can marry financial success with social responsibility. In the Business School we are hugely privileged to have Stephen’s contribution to our Advisory Board and his advice on what employers want from business ready graduates.”

Stephen founded LudlowThompson, with David Thompson whom he met after starting a part-time job at an estate agent in Putney during his degree in Business and History at the University of Roehampton. The company has grown from three offices and a turnover of £500,000, to a highly successful company with 11 offices across London, an administrative centre in the midlands, a turnover of £10 million. It employs some 125 staff.

LudlowThompson has moved over 100,000 people into new homes. It ranks number 1 in London and number 2 in the country in the All Agents league table, based on customer reviews.

The Roehampton Business School offers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses as well as an MBA.
