Sir Richard Branson
Sir Richard Branson is a very successful business magnate, best known for his Virgin Group of more than 400 companies. His first successful business venture was a magazine called ‘Student’ at age 16. In 1970, he set up an audio record mail-order business and in 1972 opened a chain of record stores, Virgin Records, later known as Virgin Megastores. His Virgin brand grew rapidly during the 1980s, as he set up Virgin Atlantic Airways and expanded the Virgin Records music label. The Virgin logo can be seen in the background of this portrait.
