Founded by Brian Sharples and Carl Shepherd in February 2005, the idea behind HomeAway was to revolutionize the historically-fragmented vacation rental industry and establish the company as the clear market leader. The entrepreneurial spirit of the pioneers who created the very first vacation rental sites, many of which are now part of the HomeAway portfolio, fueled the early growth of the business and set the tone for the company culture that exists today.
We know one of the keys to HomeAway's continued growth is our significant network. As a broader selection of vacation rentals become available on our sites, more travelers turn to HomeAway for their vacation planning. And with more travelers, comes a new wave of homeowners and managers who want to advertise with us.
Internally, our organization continues to expand to keep up with the business, growing
from 87 employees in 2005 to nearly 1,200 in 2012.
