Meet the team: Judith Armstrong

By Ashleigh Mills

Not just the Vice-Chair of our LoveBrum board of trustees, but also CEO of Millennium Point.  A fantastic destination where science, technology and learning come to life.  Did you know, in 2026, MP will be on the doorstep of the new HS2 rail station?

We’re proud to call Millennium Point our charity patrons.  In turn, they’re at the forefront of LoveBrum – our lifeblood.  Their support allows our charity to function on a day-to-day basis.  In return, we provide businesses with a range of bespoke benefits.

Find out why Judith loves Brum…

What’s your name, background and where are you based?

I’m Judith Armstrong, the CEO of Millennium Point in Eastside. Millennium Point was the catalyst for regeneration in Eastside over 15 years ago, and with our location directly opposite Curzon Street Station, where HS2 will arrive in years to come, we’re excited to be part of shifting the city core further toward the East.

Why do you Love Brum?

Birmingham is an amazing place – and it’s getting better by the day. With the city going through a renaissance, it’s great to see global companies setting up home in Birmingham alongside the independent scene, which continues to thrive.

Why did Millennium Point choose to become a patron?

Millennium Point exists to support STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) and education in the West Midlands. Commercial profits from the building are reinvested in initiatives and organisations that share our aims, with over £4million donated to educational projects across the region in the past six years. Like LoveBrum, we’re proud to support regional projects that deliver real change to our city – working together was a logical fit!

What projects are you passionate about?

As an organisation that supports STEM and education projects in the region, we’re passionate about supporting young people and ensuring local talent is retained in Birmingham – from our scholarship that supports students studying STEM degrees at Birmingham City University, to grants that provide educational materials for local schools.
