Big news! Roger Dow, who I had thought would be a lifer at Marriott, just took over as the Travel Industry Association of America as the new president and CEO. From the press release:
- The Board of Directors of the Travel Industry Association of America (TIA) appointed Roger J. Dow, senior vice president Global and Field Sales for Marriott International, Inc. as TIA's new president and CEO at their 30th annual Marketing Outlook Forum in Arizona. Dow, an industry veteran for more than three decades, will assume the top leadership position at TIA on January 1, 2005. William S. Norman, TIA president and CEO since 1995 announced his retirement effective the end of the year.
Congratulations to Dow and TIA! Here's hoping that it turns out to be a long and productive partnership.
