Dow to step down as Virgin Mobile MD

Former Virgin FD who took the MD's role decides to leave later this year, as integration with Virgin Media is completed

Alan
Gow
, managing director of Virgin Mobile, has announced his intention to step
down later this year.

Before graduating to the MD role, Gow was the FD of Virgin’s mobile phone
division. He co-founded Virgin Mobile in 1999 with the arm’s deputy MD and
commercial director Joe Steel who has also decided to leave the company.

Last year, the pair shepherded Virgin Mobile’s integration with Virgin Media,
but Virgin Mobile will continue to exist as a brand and business unit in its own
right.

Virgin Mobile said: ‘Having successfully guided the company through the first
year of its integration, Alan will step down later in the year, once a successor
is in place and an orderly transition is ensured.’

Virgin added: ‘The recruitment process for Alan’s successor at Virgin Mobile
is well advanced.’
