CEO, MARRIOTT VACATIONS WORLDWIDE, ORLANDO

Weisz’s 49-year career includes 39 years with Marriott International, where he held several key executive management positions, including senior vice president of sales and marketing for Marriott Hotels, Resorts and Suites. He joined Marriott in 1972 as a front office trainee at the Key Bridge Marriott in Arlington, Va. Weisz served as president of Marriott Vacation Club International from December 1996 until 2011, when Marriott Vacations Worldwide was established as a separate, public company from Marriott International.

In 2020, Weisz received the 2020 Charles Andrews Memorial Hospitality Award for Community Leadership, one of his industry’s highest honors. He is a trustee at Children's Miracle Network.
