Outdoorsy expands female leadership with key board appointments

Outdoorsy expands female leadership with key board appointments

Jen Young joins Women Leading Travel & Hospitality Board as an advisory member and Kim Armor joins Outdoorsy Board of Directors and will serve as Audit Chairwoman

PR Newswire

AUSTIN, Texas, March 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Outdoorsy, the most-trusted and only global online RV rental and outdoor travel marketplace, today announced two appointments that further exemplify its presence and leadership in the industry.

"A big part of Outdoorsy's success has come from having strong female leaders around the table," said Outdoorsy's CEO.

Jen Young, co-founder and CMO of Outdoorsy, has been elected to the Women Leading Travel Hospitality association as an advisory board member. Women Leading Travel & Hospitality is a new association that connects executive women across all sectors of the travel and hospitality industry. Young joins leaders from other renowned travel companies on the board, including Hard Rock International, JetBlue, Luft, Delta Airlines, Four Seasons, Marriott International, MSC Cruises, Hotwire, Airbnb, Hilton and more. As one of the board members, Young will provide resources, industry expertise and participate in key events to help build up the community of strong women leaders across the nation.

In addition, Outdoorsy is further bolstering its board with the appointment of Kim Armor as Director and Chairwoman of its Audit Committee. Armor currently serves as Managing Director and CFO at Comcast Ventures where she oversees the company's portfolio of investments and financial operations for the investment group. With extensive experience in businesses in disruptive markets, Armor will bring strong expertise in investments, strategic planning, financial planning and analysis, organizational leadership, operational process, audit, and mentorship to Outdoorsy.

"A big part of Outdoorsy's success has come from having strong female leaders around the table, both through important industry groups such as the Women Leading Travel & Hospitality and our own board," said Jeff Cavins, co-founder and CEO of Outdoorsy. "We're so proud to see Jen on the forefront, leading the industry in its transformative years, and we are thrilled to have Kim join our board and help us in our journey to expand our global position in the RV and outdoor travel industry."

Today's announcement follows the company's appointment of Jillian Slyfield, AON digital practice leader and innovator in the on-demand economy, to its advisory board in September 2020. Among U.S. startups, more than half lack women in leadership positions. In fact, according to Silicon Valley Bank's 2020 Startup Outlook Report, only 41% of tech startups have at least one woman in an executive role, and only 37% have at least one on the board of directors.
