HM Lord-Lieutenant of Bedfordshire - Susan Lousada

Susan Lousada was appointed Lord-Lieutenant in September 2022 and was previously a Deputy Lieutenant for five years.  

Born and educated in Bedfordshire, Susan has lived all but four years of her life in the county.  She has over 20 years’ experience of running a family business and continues to be a director of a property and investment company.

Susan has devoted much of her time to voluntary service with a particular focus on helping children and young people. During the first week of Covid lockdowns in 2020, she was appointed as High Sheriff of Bedfordshire and spearheaded an initiative to tackle digital poverty, resulting in the supply of over 1800 devices to under privileged children in the county.
