David S. Marriott
David is only the third Chairman of the Board in the Company’s more than 95-year history. As the son of our Chairman Emeritus and the grandson of Marriott International’s founders, he embodies the culture of the Company and provides the Board a deep understanding of the Company’s history, core values and mission. Prior to joining the Board, he served in a variety of operational, sales and leadership roles with the Company since 1999. Most recently, as President, U.S. Full Service Managed by Marriott, he oversaw hotel operations, human resources, sales & marketing, finance, market strategy, information resources and development and feasibility for more than 330 hotels operating under 14 brands in 34 states and French Polynesia. David leverages this experience—and his lifetime around the Company—to provide the Board valuable insight about the Company’s operations and the hospitality industry. .
