David Scribner

Head of Virgin Mobile

Any business that flies the flag for the Virgin brand needs a Company Head with vision, experience - and just a dash of cheekiness. For Virgin Mobile Australia, David "Scribbles" Scribner is that man. David is a business veteran with over 20 years' experience working on some of Australia's leading brands - including Milo, AGL and Telstra. After cutting his marketing teeth at Nestle, David became Telstra's head of Mobile Marketing & Operations, a role that saw him creating some of the significant changes in the way we use our phones. David was Virgin Mobile's previous marketing director and the architect of the company's customer focused insights.

Ask him over a beer and David will tell you that he prides himself on creating solutions that drive demand, on building great teams, and on producing insights that lead to work that, well, works.

David's pool-room wall includes a degree in Commerce (Marketing) from UNSW and professional courses he's completed in Melbourne, Singapore and Switzerland. He has worked in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne as well as the USA and Switzerland. And as a lifelong St George Dragons supporter, he's always been a fan of the Red V: we couldn't agree more.

Nicole Bardsley

Director of Virgin Mobile Brand and Communications

Nicole is our globetrotting brand guru. She's an advocate for our heritage with a vision for our future and a passion for exploring all corners of the world. As Director of Brand and Communications she inspires a team of creative marcomms professionals to produce fresh work that cuts through the clutter and gets our message heard loud and clear. Starting her career in print advertising for David Jones, followed by stints working in the UK and travelling widely, Nicole joined FOXTEL in 2006 and was a key player in their hugely successful EOFYS campaign. Working at FOXTEL came with the added perk of meeting Hugh Jackman - tough. Joining Virgin Mobile in 2012, her first major campaign with us (Fair Go Bro) also happened to be our most successful of all time! Coincidence? You decide. When she's not leading her team to create award-winning work, Nicole can be found climbing Everest Base Camp, practising downwards dog pose in a yoga studio or developing her photography skills.
