Thomas B. Judge

1930 - 2014


Our good friend and Valhalla advisor Tom Judge passed away on Monday, March 10, 2014. Tom served for a number of years as a portfolio manager for the pension fund of AT&T Corp. He was in many ways a legend in Private Equity. We had the privilege of working with him over the past 12 years; during that time he served as an advisor to our firm. He was instrumental in helping us establish the firm and raise our first fund. He was a guiding force at Valhalla and we will miss him dearly.
