Mitt Romney, this year's Republican nominee for U.S. president, rejoined Marriott International Inc.'s board today, the hotelier said.
Romney previously served on the board of Marriott from 1993 to 2002 and January 2009 to January 2011, when he resigned prior to his campaign for the U.S. presidency, the Bethesda, Maryland- based company said in a statement. He lost the election last month to President Barack Obama.
"We will benefit from his tremendous energy and capability to guide long-term success in an increasingly complex business environment," Chairman J.W. Marriott Jr. said of Romney in the statement.
