Bill Marriott on why he stepped down as CEO


In an article on HotelOnline, the 40-year CEO of Marriott explains why he decided it was time to let Arne Sorenson take over the daily grind of leading the hotel company. Here's a snip: I try to lead from my heart and my heart said, “Now’s the time.” For some reason, many of you thought that we were talking about the “R” word – retirement. I’m not going anywhere. I’m going to be executive chairman and as I said in numerous media interviews, Arne will be driving the bus, but I’ll still be onboard.
