Marriott International Welcomes Mitt Romney Back to Board

Mitt Romney has announced that he has returned to Marriott International as a member of the board of directors for a third time in his career. The move was announced by the company on Monday from a statement by J.W. Marriott, Jr., the executive chairman of the company. The statement said the following:

“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.”

Romney rejoins the company less than one month after he lost the presidential election to Barack Obama. Romney discussed the move in a statement released earlier this week:

“It is an honor to once again be able to 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,” Romney said in the statement.

Romney worked on the board for Marriott from 1993 to 2002, which is when he left the company to begin his successful run for governor of Massachusetts. When Romney ran an unsuccessful campaign for president in 2008, he followed that by rejoining the board at the company, serving from January of 2009 to January of 2011.
