One of Society Choice’s favorite people is Sir Richard  Branson

Here he is pictured with the founders of Society’s Choice Dr Shireen Fernandez and Alex Harris.

~Sir Richard was born on 18 July 1950 and is an English business magnate and investor. He is best known as the founder of Virgin Group of more than 400 companies.  His first business venture was a magazine called Student at the age of 16.

~In 1970, he set up a mail-order record business. In 1972, he 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 and expanded the Virgin Records music label.

~He is the 4th richest citizen of the United Kingdom, according to the Forbes 2012 list of billionaires, with an estimated net worth of US$4.6 billion.

~He is also the nicest and most down to earth person you could ever meet!

Cheers Sir Richard and to your lovely wife Joan.  It was such a pleasure to spend some time with you tonight!
