Skift Take: When you consider Mark Okerstrom’s performance, which will lead to a golden parachute substantially less than what might have been, he can take a bunch of blame — but not for everything. The integration of the Vrbo acquisition was clearly messed up, as was the reorganization. Conversely, he inherited a very tough competitive environment.
