ORLANDO, Fl. — Governor Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican nominee for the U.S. presidency, has rejoined the Board of Directors at Marriott International.
“We are delighted that Gov. Romney has agreed to rejoin our Board, on which he has served with distinction twice before. We will benefit from his tremendous energy and capability to guide long-term success in an increasingly complex business environment. We look forward to working closely with him again as a member of our strong, talented and diverse Board,” said J.W. Marriott, Jr., the company’s executive chairman.
Governor Romney is happy to rejoin the fold. “It is an honour to once again serve in the company of leaders like Bill Marriott and Arne Sorenson and to support the work of the tens of thousands of Marriott associates who make Marriott International the renowned success that it is,” he said.
Romney previously served on the Marriott International Board from 1993 to 2002 when he left the Board before being elected Governor of Massachusetts. He also served from January 2009 to January 2011, when he resigned prior to his campaign for the U.S. presidency.
