GT’s Luder crowned Lord Mayor

As many as 300,000 people turned out to see Grant Thornton partner Ian Luder take his place as Lord Mayor of London on Saturday

Some 151 floats took part in the procession, including those representing the
Institute of Chartered Accountants, the
Worshipful company of
tax advisers
and
Grant Thornton
itself. Elected on 29 September, Luder officially became Lord Mayor on Friday in
a silent ceremony held at the Guildhall.

The ceremony has been taking place for 784 years, after King John allowed the
City of London to have a Mayor, on condition that the Mayor was annually
presented to the monarch for approval, and so that the Mayor could ‘swear
fealty’. Luder is the 681st Lord Mayor, and will continue to be a tax partner at
GT in his spare time.
