“The enduring values John set forth when he founded the company remain our beacon,” said Martin. “These new roles are a natural continuation and elevation of Justin’s and my existing partnership.”

“POWDR is focused on diversifying and elevating the experiences we offer,” said Sibley. “Aligning Woodward with our resort operations will introduce Woodward’s globally recognized brand and iconic youth culture to more kids and families worldwide.”
