Arabella Bowen

I’m an award-winning1 Executive Editor and Content Strategist with over 20 years experience building teams, launching products, and publishing art, culture, and travel content for brands like Fodor’s, AFAR, Sotheby’s, and Christie’s.2

I’m also a founding member of Chief and believe in supporting women leaders. Through my boutique consulting agency, I’ve partnered with female founders to help launch innovative brands, including SoloTrvlr, Digital Party, Soleil Entertainment, and Cruz & Pepita.

In a former life, I was a weekly columnist for the Montreal Gazette3 and co-authored five Rough Guides4. Since then, I’ve had bylines in The New York Times and New York Magazine and talked travel5 with the hosts of CBS This Morning, The Today Show, CNN, Fox, and NPR.

Finally, as a French-speaking Canadian6 who later became an American citizen,7 I’m passionate about immigration, access to education, and voting rights. My volunteer work includes Citizenship Now!,8 HELP,9 Minds Matter, and the NY Board of Elections.10
