Stephen Attenborough

Virgin Galactic's Commercial Director

Stephen Attenborough is the Commercial Director for Virgin Galactic, a company owned by Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Group which is on track to become the world’s first passenger-carrying commercial spaceline.

After starting out in investment management in the City of London, Stephen joined Virgin Galactic in 2004 as the company’s first full-time employee.

His London team now covers customer care, PR and Communications, licensing, partnerships, sales and marketing, and has so far attracted over $50m in deposits from around 380 future astronauts.

Outside of his role in the business and marketing of the Virgin Galactic brand, Stephen also plays a vital role in the non-tourism side of the business, namely the scientific and technological research and future implications of extended space travel.

Prior to joining Virgin Galactic, Stephen worked for Gartmore Investment Management, a major London-based investment management firm, where he performed in a number of management activities for more than 15 years. At Gartmore, his roles focused on the company’s relationship with sophisticated institutional and high net worth clients and prospective clients.

Stephen’s unique messages and themes leave businesses with practicable and innovative actions, including the impact new technologies have on business and how to drive business innovation and growth through the right combination of people and technology.

His work as a technology speaker is not only worthwhile to those in the business and innovation sector but also to those interested in science, astronomy and space travel.
