Virgin Atlantic comms director Meigan Terry takes off

Terry will depart without a role to go to but says she is keen to spend time with her family before deciding on her next move.

Virgin Atlantic does not have a succession plan so far. Terry’s departure will leave Sarah Coggins, vice-president PR and social media, as the most senior comms professional at the long-haul carrier. Coggins joined Virgin in 2011 from easyJet.

A company spokeswoman said: "We can confirm Meigan has decided to leave Virgin Atlantic. We will certainly be sad to see Meigan go, but one of the many contributions she has made to Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Holidays has been to build a very talented and capable team, so she will leave us in good hands.

"In the meantime, Meigan is supporting the transition for her teams. We would like to thank Meigan for her tremendous contributions and accomplishments over the years and we wish her all the best in the future."

Terry joined Virgin in January 2014 after nine years at BlackBerry, where she held a number of senior marketing and comms roles. Before that she was an associate director at Hill+Knowlton.

Terry said: "I have loved every moment at Virgin Atlantic and I will miss working with such an amazing, creative and enthusiastic group of people. It's always sad to move on, but I have every confidence that the team will deliver amazing results this year. As for my next move, I have promised my family that I will take some time off before beginning to think about the next adventure."

In May last year, Virgin Atlantic appointed Weber Shandwick as its retained consumer PR agency, handling an expanded brief that includes social media.
