Last week, Mitt Romney was elected to represent the state of Utah in the United States Senate; now, the Marriott International Inc. board member is resigned from his role with the hotel company, citing an inability to “commit sufficient time and attention to Marriott and its shareholders.
In the wake of Romney’s departure, the company has decided to reduce the size of its board from 14 members down to 13. Romney, who is a former presidential nominee for the Republican party and also a former governor of the state of Utah, has been balancing his committments in the political arena with his work with Marriott for many years.
In fact, his history with Marriott goes back some time. Romney first served as Marriott’s director from 1993 to 2002. This is also not the first time he has left his role with Marriott for public service, doing so back in 2002 after Utah elected him as its governor. He returned to Marriott from 2009 to 2011, before leaving to run for president, and subsequently rejoining the hotel company’s board back in 2012.
Romney’s history with the hospitality company, however, goes back much much further. In fact, his given name is Willard, which is in honor of J. Willard Marriott, who was a friend of Romney’s father as well as the founder of what has become the single largest hotel company in the world.
