Powell's career has been focused on driving commercial growth. He was a key member of the Easyfairs U.K. management team and was instrumental in growing their business in that country from a handful of events to one of the top 20 revenue generating event producers globally. Following his time at Easyfairs, Powell moved to the Middle East to lead the Daily Mail Group's events business in Egypt, Qatar & Saudi Arabia, working closely with the national governments to launch events to accompany their nations' strategic visions across multiple sectors.

Most recently, after relocating back to the U.K., Powell launched a division comprising several human resources events for CloserStill Media. Within a year, these launch events became market leaders in the U.K. and France and are well-positioned for further global expansion.
