Joe Poulin

Founder & CEO

Joe saw the potential of the Sharing Economy early on, and sought to create a network of luxury villa rentals under one brand. A little over 15 years after founding his startup, Joe has grown Luxury Retreats from a four-property listing site to one of the world’s largest specialty villa rental companies. In recognition for his achievements, Joe was nominated in 2012 as one of Canada’s Entrepreneurs of the Year by Ernst & Young. With a continued focus on quality and service, he now heads a growing global team of luxury travel industry experts.
