Alex Hunter Biography

Digital branding expert Alex Hunter certainly understands the power of branding. (Richard Branson’s The Virgin Group, anyone?)

With his quirky charm and a focus on travel to enrich his keynote speeches, the company incubator and angel investor is sought after internationally for his expertise in consumer experience and its future. A proponent of start-up creativity blended with emerging technologies, Alex was leveraging social media to build brands even before checking our Facebook feed every two minutes had become the norm (yes, that time existed).

Responsible for getting Virgin America off the ground and then as Head of Online Marketing for the Virgin Group, the branding nerd curated both the Virgin brand and Sir Richard Branson’s digital strategy.

Digital branding expert Alex Hunter certainly understands the power of branding. (Richard Branson’s The Virgin Group, anyone?)

With his quirky charm and a focus on travel to enrich his keynote speeches, the company incubator and angel investor is sought after internationally for his expertise in consumer experience and its future. A proponent of start-up creativity blended with emerging technologies, Alex was leveraging social media to build brands even before checking our Facebook feed every two minutes had become the norm (yes, that time existed).

Responsible for getting Virgin America off the ground and then as Head of Online Marketing for the Virgin Group, the branding nerd curated both the Virgin brand and Sir Richard Branson’s digital strategy.

At Virgin America, Alex won several accolades including ad:tech and a Webby Award for the  website, and he created a digital marketing campaign to build public support for the brand's certification process. Working to a tight schedule and budget, Alex’s success was lauded, and covered by Time magazine, CNN, and CNBC.

After Virgin, Alex served as the Chief Executive of a venture-backed digital music company, with investment from the backers of Twitter, Tumblr, Medium, and Kickstarter. He steered the company from pre-alpha to a Series A financing, a successful international M&A deal, and multi-national growth in under a year.

Alex has helped young companies prepare for pitches to some of the most influential figures in the tech community. Featured in the best-selling book ‘The Whuffie Factor’ by Tara Hunt, Alex’s work with the Prince of Wales' Rainforest Trust engaged the organisation with the use of social media to reflect the Trusts' message. He was also a mentor at the annual SeedCamp venture capital and angel funding event in London and South Africa.

Now working on a travel app and hosting the new online show Attaché, Alex is also writing book about the future of travel.

His speaking topics include:

- Branding and identity

- Creating online engagement and loyalty

- Venture capital and angel funding

- The future of travel
