Patrice Gordon-Mantey

Patrice is responsible for managing the relationship between Virgin Atlantic and its partners at Delta and Air France KLM. Soon after joining Virgin Atlantic, Patrice was quickly recognised as a change catalyst and nominated to head up the Talent Development Group for the Finance Department. She was asked to be the first Reverse Mentor within the Company to the CEO and then lead a cohort of Reverse Mentors across the business, which will expand across the year. Chosen due to her ability to translate between all levels, her background, and ability to be objective and honest. Patrice has been able to shed some light on some of the challenges she has faced in her career and within the organisation, which she believes could have hindered her development, personal learnings on what she could have done differently, but most importantly what she believes are the key attributes to success. Most recently, Patrice received certification to facilitate the Springboard training programme, a development course for junior women in business. Patrice also studied independently to become certified as a Personal and Business Coach, keen to help others realise their potential and become their best selves.
