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.
