It is with great sadness we announce the death of the founder of Vango, Alastair Moodie Snr, who died peacefully on Sunday 27th September after a short illness. Alastair, the companies first Managing Director, alongside his brother Gary, founded Vango in 1966. Alastair was always driven to succeed, be innovative and build the Vango brand whilst delivering the very best service to his customers and partners.

Alastair retired in 1996, but always remained interested in his ‘baby’, joining the current Vango team for our 50th Birthday Celebrations on Loch Lomond in 2016.

Current Managing Director, Stephen Newlands, said

I highly respected Alastair Moodie on both a professional, and personal basis, he will be sorely missed. Although he had retired, he kept up to date with what was going on and was proud of his achievements. Our thoughts are with his family and we send them our very best wishes at this difficult time.

Alastair’s funeral will be a private family affair due to the current CoVid-19 restrictions.
