Nextdoor is excited to welcome Bryan Power as Head of People. It’s an exciting time at Nextdoor, with our footprint expanding rapidly across the world, and Bryan’s incredible experience leading human resources, talent acquisition, and employee development for global companies will be a tremendous addition to the team.
Bryan brings more than 20 years of human resources and talent acquisition experience to Nextdoor – most recently as its Chief Human Resources Officer at Yahoo. Throughout his time at Yahoo, Bryan was responsible for leading the global People Team, serving more than 10,000 employees in 30 offices across the Americas, EMEA and APAC. Accountable for talent acquisition, diversity and inclusion, learning and development, people analytics, and culture, Bryan’s team oversaw all aspects of the employee experience.
Prior to Yahoo, Bryan held a similar role at Square, successfully growing the company from 350 to 1600, ramping employee programs and HR infrastructure ahead of the company’s successful public offering in November 2015. Previous to Square, Bryan spent eight years at Google leading global recruiting teams in various organizations, including software engineering, product management and sales & marketing. He is also a board member of Avenica, a U.S. recruiting firm that focuses on placing recent college graduates into entry-level career-track positions, as well as an advisor to a number of high growth tech companies in San Francisco.
Bryan exudes our Nextdoor core values and understands the importance of culture and community building. We are thrilled Bryan will be joining the team in our global headquarters in San Francisco, where he will report to our incoming CEO Sarah Friar. Please join us in welcoming Bryan Power to the neighborhood!
