Virgin is one of those magnetically irresistible brands, led by a charming, savvy, and big personality with a ear-to-ear smile

Under Richard Branson's lead, the brand has expanded into sectors that vary from travel to telecommunications to health to banking to leisure

Virgin now employs over 60,000 people in more than 100 companies spread over 50 countries.

It all started when Branson founded Virgin Records after a mail order records stint in 1980. 

Shortly after, he opened a record shop on Oxford Street, London. Virgin Records went on to build a recording studio, eventually signing well beloved names like the Sex Pistols and The Rolling Stones, becoming the biggest independent label in the world.

From there, came Virgin Atlantic in 1984. Virgin Australia, Virgin America, Virgin Holidays, Virgin Limited Edition, Virgin Trains, Virgin Hotels and Virgin Galactic have since followed in travel, as Branson expanded his brand to cover a diverse range of sectors.
