With over 30 years of experience in META, Grayling will be responsible for developing and executing a strategic public relations plan for Virgin Mobile Middle East and Africa, and is set to play an important role in strengthening Virgin Mobile’s PR footprint as the company looks to launch the brand in new markets across the region in the next few years.

We are honored to be working with such an exciting global entity and we look forward to building their brand even further as they continue to grow and gain momentum across the markets,” commented Jonathan Shillington, Managing Director, Grayling.
