Marriott’s Arne Sorenson Named One of LinkedIn’s Top Voices of the Year

Marriott President and CEO Arne Sorenson was named on LinkedIn’s Top Voices of the Year.

“The Marriott CEO spends 225 nights per year on the road, often sharing insights gained from meeting employees as well as company news and personal lessons like living deliberately. This year, Sorenson announced Marriott would expand its initiative to eliminate single-use toiletry bottles in its hotels, a measure it says will reduce 1.7 million pounds of plastic when fully rolled out. The announcement drew hundreds of comments on LinkedIn.”
