Vinod Thakrar

Vinod Thakrar sadly passed away at the end of 2017. At the time he was a Director and Board Member of Bristol Spaceworks. He had sat on our board since Bristol Spaceoworks was founded from the merger of East Bristol Enterprise and Bristol East Side Traders in 2010. Vinod’s experience and business acumen were vital in navigating this tricky process.

After completing a  PhD in Computer Technology, Vinod went on to be a highly successful entrepreneur and businessman with over 35 years’ experience of running own and franchised businesses. Prior to retiring, he had run the Bristol franchise of Driver Hire, which was based on Church Rd in Whitehall for many years.

Everyone connected to Bristol Spaceworks would like to pass on our sincere condolences to Vinod’s family and friends, he will be dearly missed.
