Romney Rejoins Marriott Hotel Chain Directors

Dec. 3, 2012

Failed presidential challenger Mitt Romney will rejoin the board of directors of Marriott International, the hotel chain announced Monday.

"We are delighted that Governor Romney has agreed to rejoin our board, on which he has served with distinction twice before," company executive chairman JW Marriott Junior said.

The announcement came just weeks after his loss to President Barack Obama in the November 6 elections.

Romney previously served on the board of Marriott International from 1993-2002. He quit early in 2002 to mount a successful run for Massachusetts governor and rejoined the company after an unsuccessful presidential campaign in 2008, then served again on the board from January 2009-January 2011, when he stepped down to run for the White House this year, winning the nomination of the conservative Republican Party before narrowly losing to Obama.
