Jennifer Young

Co-Founder & Chief Marketing Officer


Jennifer Young is the co-founder and chief marketing officer of Outdoorsy, the world’s largest and most trusted online RV rental marketplace. With more than 18 million RVs in North America sitting idle 355 days a year, Young is catalyzing the connection between RV owners and travelers who want to experience magic of outdoor travel without ownership. By listing an RV on Outdoorsy, an owner could make anywhere from $30,000 to $1 million a year (assuming they own multiple units), providing them with life-changing financial freedom.

In time, Young’s travel bucket list has grown to rival the length of her resume — working on three continents and traveling over 40 countries already — with plans to tackle all 58 US National Parks too. Her professional accomplishments include a long career in top agencies at WPP managing global brands like HSBC, Johnson & Johnson, P&G, DHL, and American Express. Most recently, she was recognized as Forbes Top 50 CMO. The accomplishment she’s perhaps most proud of though is the move she made from Manhattan to a 27-foot Airstream trailer, where she lived on the road for 7.5 months before founding Outdoorsy.
