Marriott chairman resigns director seat at Host
The Washington Business Journal

WASHINGTON – In a move to further distance itself from its real estate spinoff, Marriott International Chairman Bill Marriott will resign from Host Marriott's board, Bloomberg reported Thursday. The companies also have agreed to restructure the terms of their relationship to make it easier for Host to sell Marriott hotels. As part of the shakeup, Host will move out of Marriott's Bethesda headquarters. Marriott spun off Host in 1993.
