    Twenty-year hospitality veteran Stephane C. Masson has been named vice president, global procurement for Marriott International, Inc. He will lead a team to manage and deploy, scalable and environmentally responsible procurement initiatives around the world, increase synergies between domestic and international contracts, and advance global supplier diversity. Marriott has a goal to spend 15 percent with minority-, veteran-, LGBT-, and woman-owned businesses. In the past five years, Marriott spent $2.3 billion with diverse suppliers in the U.S. and 14.8 percent ($372 million) last year alone.

    “Stephane brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to this position,” said John Adams, senior vice president, Global Operations Services, Marriott International, Inc. “We’re confident that he will mirror his international procurement success globally.”

    French-born Stephane is expanding his most recent responsibilities as vice president of international procurement where he successfully managed supplier initiatives in the United Kingdom, Dubai, China, Australia and Germany to include Marriott’s global portfolio that spans 70 countries and territories.
