Randy Warden has committed his entire life to public service and is ready to serve as London’s Ward 5 City Councillor.
Born and raised in London, Randy joined the Canadian Forces after high school and was posted to the 2ndBattalion of the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry in Winnipeg. He would later go on to serve two years as a reservist with 4thBattalion before returning home to serve the Royal Canadian Regiment right here in London.
After completing his military service, Randy joined the Commissionaires, a national security company in London. There, he rose through the ranks, spending two years managing the Southwestern Ontario region before being promoted to Vice President and ultimately Chief Operating Officer for the entire company.
In 2009, Randy left the Commissionaires to launch his own management and security consulting business.
As a proud Canadian and an involved Londoner, Randy has held a number of prominent roles in his community. As Chairperson for London Celebrates Canada, he enjoys working collaboratively with local First Nations, Francophone, and other communities, promoting a better, more inclusive city.
Randy is proud to be a President’s Honour Roll graduate of the Emergency Management program at Fanshawe College and an accredited Certified Protection Professional.
Randy and his wife Nancy have called Ward 5 home for more than 20 years. Together they have four grown children and five beautiful grandchildren who they dearly love.
