Richard Branson


British entrepreneur who is the founder of Virgin Records and, by 1994, was the owner of Virgin-Atlantic Airways. He began his career with his "Student" magazine; by age 20, he had a thriving business and 40 employees. Twelve years later, his empire consisted of 50 companies that were giving him a turnover of 50 million pounds; Branson was ready to expand into the software, film, video and property markets.

His mom was a strong influence on his success, emphasizing independence and self-reliance. Basically shy, his public persona is one of bravado, but the private man remains an enigma.

He married in the summer of 1974 and separated in 11/1977. In 12/1989, Branson married his partner of the prior 12 years. He went through a period of depression and reflection in mid-1990. He published an autobiography, "Losing My Virginity."
