Published on : Wednesday, February 24, 2021

Anthony Capuano has been appointed Chief Executive of Marriott International following the unfortunate death of Arne Sorenson. Prior to this appointment, Capuano served as the Group President, Global Development, Design and Operations Services with the hospitality giant. In this role, he was responsible for leading global development and design efforts and overseeing the company’s Global Operations discipline.


During Mr. Capuano’s tenure leading global development, the company grew its footprint from just over 3,200 properties in early 2009 to over 7,600 properties by year-end 2020. In addition, he has overseen the tremendous growth and globalisation of Marriott’s development pipeline to 498,000 rooms as of December 31, 2020, with more than half of the pipeline representing projects outside of the U.S.


During the COVID-19 pandemic, Mr. Capuano led Marriott’s work on its Commitment to Clean initiative, which was designed to enhance Marriott’s already substantial cleaning protocols to provide additional peace of mind for travelers. Capuano began his Marriott career in 1995 as part of the Market Planning and Feasibility team. Between 1997 and 2005, he led Marriott’s full-service development efforts in the Western U.S. & Canada. From 2005 to 2008, Mr. Capuano served as Senior Vice President of full-service development for North America.


In 2008, his responsibilities expanded to include all of U.S. & Canada and the Caribbean and Latin America, and he became Executive Vice President and Global Chief Development Officer in 2009. Capuano began his professional career in Laventhol and Horwath’s Boston-based Leisure Time Advisory Group.


He then joined Kenneth Leventhal and Company’s hospitality consulting group in Los Angeles. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Hotel Administration from Cornell University and is an active member of the Cornell Hotel Society and a member of The Cornell School of Hotel Administration Dean’s Advisory Board. Mr. Capuano is also a member of the American Hotel and Lodging Association’s Industry Real Estate Financial Advisory Council.
