FILE - In this Dec. 19, 2012, file photo, Marriott CEO Arne Sorenson speaks during a groundbreaking ceremony for a Marriott hotel in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Sorenson was the third CEO in Marriotts 93-year history, and the first without the Marriott surname. Sorenson reduced his schedule at Marriott this month to pursue a more aggressive cancer treatment. He was first diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2019; a recent routine scan had confirmed the cancer had returned, the company said. Sorenson was the first Marriott CEO whose name was not Marriott, and only the third to lead the company in its 93-year history.
