In a message to Marriott International associates, Sorenson noted: “The cancer was discovered early. It does not appear to have spread and the medical team – and I – are confident that we can realistically aim for a complete cure. In the meantime, I intend to continue working at the company I love. Let me make one request, look ahead with me. We have great work underway at Marriott. I am as excited by what we can accomplish together as I have ever been.”


Despite the diagnosis, Mr. Sorenson’s determination to stay on with his duties while undergoing treatment is a testament to his dedication to Marriott.  All of the LoyaltyLobby staff wish Mr. Sorenson a full and speedy recovery.
