Our Story

SIR RICHARD BRANSON ESTABLISHED THE VIRGIN GROUP IN 1970 BY LAUNCHING A MAIL-ORDER RECORD BUSINESS THAT DEVELOPED INTO VIRGIN RECORDS.

Richard’s restless spirit of entrepreneurialism, innovation and market disruption has created a diversified group and underpins Virgin Group’s 45 years of growth.

Virgin Records was the first Virgin company to reach a billion dollar valuation in 1992. Since then eight further Virgin branded companies have become billion dollar enterprises operating across five sectors and three continents.
