Sir Richard Charles Nicholas Branson is an English business head honcho, investor and giver. He established the Virgin Group, which controls in excess of 400 organizations.
Branson communicated his desire for business visionary at a youthful age. His first business venture, at 16 years old, was owning a magazine called Student. In 1970, he set up a mail-arrange record business. He opened a chain of record stores, Virgin Records—later known as Virgin Megastores—in 1972. Branson's Virgin brand developed quickly amid the 1980s, as he set up Virgin Atlantic carrier and extended the Virgin Records music label.
In Walk 2000, Branson was knighted at Buckingham Royal residence for "services to entrepreneurship". For his work in retail, music and transport, his preference for enterprise, and for his helpful work, he became a conspicuous figure.
