About Q Hamirani
Mission driven business-minded leader

I am a mission driven business-minded leader, advisor, speaker and executive coach with a focus on people strategy and business operations. I bring valuable insights to drive sustainable change from my extensive first hand experience across my own startups, venture growth, private equity, management consulting, and Fortune 100 companies. Currently, I am the Chief People & Communications Officer at Paper, where I oversee public relations, internal and external communications, and the people team, including recruiting.

​Before Paper, I joined Airbnb in 2018 as its first global people ops leader, and played a key role in designing and implementing Airbnb's people and talent operations function to lead the company through significant milestones such as hyper growth, pandemic responses, workforce restructuring, IPO, and the future of work. Learn more about my professional experience in the visual below. One of my notable achievements at Airbnb was the ideation and incubation of Airbnb's Digital Nomad program in 2020. This program eventually evolved into Airbnb's formal Live & Work Anywhere (future of work) program in 2022. By leveraging Airbnb's existing business model, I helped position the company as an industry leader in the future of work, enabling employees to live and work from anywhere. To support this initiative, I spearheaded the creation of a unique global Center of Excellence (COE) that brought together various teams to drive the vision and enhance the employee experience and business growth collectively.

I am an avid traveler, always exploring new destinations and cultural experiences. Furthermore, my love for music and film has led me to support emerging artists and filmmakers through his own record label and executive production roles for independent films.
