Vincent served as one of the two Sheriffs of the City of London in 2018/19, alongside his fellow Sheriff Liz Green. He stepped down on 27 September 2019. Throughout the year Vincent and his wife Amanda (and their labrador, India) lived in the Old Bailey, at the heart of the Ward of Farringdon Within.
The central role of the Sheriffs is to support the Lord Mayor. Alongside this, the Sheriffs contribute to the implementation of the Corporation’s Corporate Plan. The third area of Shrieval activity is the promotion of the Rule of Law and, in particular, the support of HM Judges at the Central Criminal Court. This strand of activity runs through the Sheriffs' year as a constant and visible feature. It is embedded in many of the events hosted by the Sheriffs that take place in the Old Bailey during the year.
In a very busy year, Vincent attended, hosted and spoke at business, livery and charity related events every day. A few of the many highlights of the year included:
