Richard Branson

March 7th, 2012 by admin

Richard Branson, creator of Virgin Megastores, started his business ventures at the ripe age of 16 years-old, with a magazine called Student. The 1980’s were nice to Branson, allowing him to expand his music label and open his own airline, Virgin Atlantic Airways. Since then, he has taken on challenges such as his attempt to travel around the world in a hot air balloon. Even though it was a failed attempt, it still was a magnet for his brand followers. He is an inspiration to his brand and we anxiously await what he will do next.

About The List

A company's greatest asset is its brand. An individual’s greatest asset is character or image (a personal brand). But without a true Brand Champion leading the cause, brand success (for a company, product or person) can be elusive. The Brand Iron BC 100 list is comprised of individuals who truly understand and embrace the power of a brand (our Brand Chumps list is comprised of those who clearly don’t). Whether leaders of an organization or individuals managing their personal brand, they take responsibility for developing a brand that exudes success. Each month our staff will recognize a notable Brand Champion. Each year we will announce our BC 100 list. Whether you agree or disagree, we invite you to share your opinions. And feel free to nominate anyone you feel deserves to be part of the list.
