(born 18 July 1950) is an English business magnate, best known for his 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 an audio record mail-order business. In 1972, he opened a chain of record stores, Virgin Records, later known as Virgin Megastores. Branson's Virgin brand grew rapidly during the 1980s, as he set up Virgin Atlantic Airways and expanded the Virgin Records music label.
Branson is the 4th richest citizen of the United Kingdom, according to the Forbes 2011 list of billionaires, with an estimated net worth of US$4.2 billion.
Branson was asked if he was bullied as a kid; A little bit. I think bullies are the worst people and I hope that I went to the rescue of people who were being bullied - I was quite tall for my age. I think bullying is unforgivable. Anyone who sees it happen should try to put a stop to it.

If bullying is unforgivable I wonder if he banned all his childhood bullies from using his airlines :)
