Marriott appoints LatAm president

King Marriott

Marriott International has promoted Brian King to the role of president of the company’s Caribbean and Latin America region.

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.

“I am thrilled to have this opportunity to be a partner in the ongoing success of the Caribbean and Latin America region,” said King. “To support the growing legacy of all the caring associates and innovative owners in this dynamic part of the globe is the greatest honour of my career. Having started on the front line serving our guests is a gift that keeps me grounded in our TakeCare culture and the drive for rapid innovation and strategic expansion.”
