Marriott CEO diagnosed with pancreatic cancer

Marriott CEO Arne Sorenson has been diagnosed with stage 2
pancreatic cancer.

Marriott has revealed that the 60-year-old will remain in his
executive role while receiving treatment.

“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,” said Sorenson in a
message on the company’s website.

Sorenson has been with Marriott since 1996 and has been CEO
since 2012.

“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.”

Sorenson’s treatment plan begins this week with chemotherapy,
and his doctors anticipate surgery near the end of this year.
