Bailey departs Virgin Mobile

SYDNEY: Virgin Mobile marketing director Sue Bailey is leaving the company to move to the US.

Bailey, who has been with Virgin since 2003, will finish in Australia on 14 December to take up a role with Virgin Mobile USA.

Virgin Mobile has released a statement describing Bailey as “a lynch pin in Virgin Mobile’s success”.

“With a team of around 40, her role has covered everything from brand and marketing strategy, communications, design of customer acquisition and retention campaigns, product development, pricing and handset sourcing as well as supply chain responsibilities,” the statement said.

“Sue will be very missed by her team and everyone at Virgin Mobile.”

Virgin Mobile will be recruiting externally to replace Bailey.

An announcement on her replacement is expected in the near future.
