Voices of The Ward Banner


The Ward of Cheap Club exists to support the Lord Mayor, Alderman, and Common Councilmen in their duties. As part of this mission, we have launched the Voices of the Ward initiative, where we engage with business leaders within the Ward to share their experiences and insights. This initiative aims to highlight the rich history and commercial significance of the Ward of Cheap, home to various businesses, from startups to small and large enterprises.

In our Voices of the Ward series, we invite CEOs and Founders from various sectors to discuss what makes the Ward of Cheap and the City of London an exceptional place to conduct business. Mark Magnacca, the President of the Ward of Cheap Club for 2024, hosts each episode of the Voices of the Ward interview. These interviews delve into innovation, leadership, infrastructure, and the business community. By sharing their stories, we hope to inspire and inform other business leaders and aspiring entrepreneurs of the unique advantages of being part of the Ward of Cheap in the City of London.
