The Cloud5 family joins our colleagues at Marriott and the entire hospitality community in mourning the passing of Arne Sorenson. I met him a few times – the last at an Executives Club of Chicago meeting not long before he became ill. He spoke of his commitment to social justice and how important ethics in business have always been to him. He led with integrity and demonstrated those values often. His compassion was obvious and genuine. We in hospitality are a small, tight-knit community. Arne’s decency, his leadership, and his kindness will be greatly missed. Our hearts go out to our Marriott friends, the many friends he had in our industry, and his family during this difficult time.

-Mark Holzberg and the Cloud5 Team
