Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has landed a pretty nice consolation prize after being defeated by Barack Obama in the 2012 election: board of directors member.
More specifically, Romney has rejoined the board of directors for hotel and resort company Marriott International (NYSE:MAR), as of today. Romney previously served on Marriott’s board of directors from 1993-2002 and from January 2009 to January 2011. His first term ended when he successfully ran for governor of Massachusetts, and his second term ended when he began his campaign for U.S. president.
In a Marriott press release, Romney said “It is an honor to once again be able to serve in the company of leaders like Bill Marriott and Arne Sorenson and to support the work of the tens of thousands of Marriott associates who make Marriott International the renowned success that it is.”
