About Alex Hunter
Alex Hunter looks at brand and customer loyalty in the digital age and how companies can effectively partner their offers online and offline. He argues that too many organisations view digital as something that will change their business when in fact many of the principles that have made them successful in their field readily apply online. He examines how to build a consistently impressive relationship with customers throughout their contact with a brand.
Alex Hunter previously served as the Global Head of Digital for the Virgin Group, curating the entire Virgin brand’s global digital strategy. Before joining the Virgin Group, he was part of the team that founded Virgin America, where he ran the airline’s digital strategy. Alex also oversaw the development of Virgin America’s website which has since won several award honors such as ad:tech and Webby.
Alex currently serves on the Board of Trustees for the UK non-profit Drinkaware.
