Grant Bourhill to take new role

Grant Bourhill, Chief Executive Officer at Leicester Science Parks is to take up a new role as Managing Director for Surrey Research Park.

Since joining Leicester in early 2018, Grant’s leadership has been pivotal in developing Space Park Leicester, of which the first phase of building work was completed earlier this month.

As CEO, Grant’s work with Space Park Leicester helped to raise significantly the profile of the flagship endeavour, ensuring Space Park Leicester became a key activity within Leicestershire’s Local Industrial Strategy.  

He has also been central to Space Park Leicester’s business development activity, working closely with colleagues on key developments such as Meteor, the University’s largest grant award, and the LoCAS (Low Cost Access to Space) programme.

Geoff Green, Registrar and Secretary at the University of Leicester said: “The recognition of Space Park Leicester’s local and national potential is testament to Grant’s impact here in Leicester, and I wish him every success in the future.”
