Appointed Head of Airbnb Experiences
At Airbnb, Inc. in San Francisco - CA, USA
A veteran of the Walt Disney Company, Powell has lived and worked around the world over the last two decades to deliver immersive experiences to guests. Her appointment comes as consumers, particularly Millennials and Generation Z, are increasingly choosing to spend their time and money on local, authentic things to do rather than on consumer goods. Euromonitor estimated that "consumer's expenses with experiences should increase from $5.8 trillion in 2016 to $8 trillion in 2030."
