Sir Trevor Holdsworth

Chancellor 1992 - 1997

Sir Trevor Holdsworth, former chairman of National Power and of the Bradford-based Allied Colloids international chemical business, was installed as Chancellor on 24 March 1992.

Bradford-born, Sir Trevor is a distinguished businessman who cherishes his local roots. He believes that invention and innovation are at the heart of wealth creation and economic prosperity, and was proud of the University's reputation for 'Making Knowledge Work'. Sir Trevor is a firm believer in the importance of lifelong learning.

Knighted in 1982, Sir Trevor has appreciable talent as a pianist, and could have risen to international fame in this area had he not chosen a business career.

The University is eternally grateful that he chose the latter.
