Fox will work alongside director of media relations Jackie McQuillan – the two of them effectively replacing Richard Branson’s right-hand man Whitehorn, who is dedicating more time to the Virgin Galactic project (PRWeek, 14 September).

Both roles report to Virgin Management CEO Gordon McCallum.

Fox has been a senior consultant at M: for more than four years, and handled its Virgin Media account City.

As director of financial comms and regulatory aff­airs, Fox will handle Virgin’s financial comms, IR and ­regulatory affairs. He will work on secondment from M: until January next year while completing a handover period from the agency.

‘We hope to strengthen our relationship with Virgin,’ said M: co-founder Nick Miles.
