Marriott International announced that Brian King has been appointed President of the company’s Caribbean and Latin America region. King will take on his new role in January 2021 and will report to Craig Smith, who will assume the role of Group President, International at that time.  King succeeds Tim Sheldon, who recently announced his retirement.
 
Marriott’s Caribbean and Latin America region includes 268 properties spread across 34 countries. In August 2019, Marriott announced the launch of its all-inclusive platform and the signing of management contracts with hotel developers who plan to build seven new all-inclusive resorts in the region. In December 2019, Marriott acquired Elegant Hotels Group, which includes seven hotels in Barbados, to help further jump-start the growth of the company’s all-inclusive lodging platform.
 
A 27-year Marriott veteran, King currently serves as Global Officer leading 9,500 associates in Distribution, Revenue Strategy, Customer Engagement Centers (CEC), the Global Sales Organization (GSO) and Planning & Services. He oversees $23 billion in sales from Marriott’s largest multinational customers, 63 million customer contacts a year in the CECs and product development for the company’s category-leading revenue-generating systems.
 
King’s experience with the company spans digital, brand management for Marriott endorsed brands, and operations roles in the Americas. During his tenure, he has worked on bringing Delta Hotels and Protea Hotels into Marriott’s brand portfolio and was responsible for the global brand launch of MOXY Hotels in 2013. King is also credited with the transformation of Courtyard by Marriott. King also helped lead the integration of Starwood Hotels onto Marriott’s reservations, revenue management and digital platforms. He began his Marriott journey as an hourly associate at Marriott’s Great America.
