We Honor Marriott’s Edwin D. Fuller as a Veterans Advantage TopVetFriday, December 10th, 2010
And yes, he’s logged more miles than George Clooney in last year’s hit movie “Up in the Air.”
We honored Fuller as a Veterans Advantage TopVet last week, in recognition of his Army service and extraordinary professional achievements at Marriott, proving once again, that the skills gained through military service are invaluable in building great companies.
I was joined by Peter Eldredge from our Board, and Roy Asfar, our VP of Marketing. We listened to Fuller cover the world’s capitals and datelines like we talk about our neighborhood coffee shop. Ed is also building world-class hotels in a land he once visited as a young LT. braced for war: Vietnam. For those of us who served in Vietnam, we marvel at how much the world has changed in our lifetime!
And now that he is nearing 40 years of service with the same employer, working with Navy Veteran and CEO J.W. Marriott, Fuller is planning a change of pace in a year or so - writing books, hitting the speaking circuit and teaching at UC-Irvine. In the meantime, there’s plenty of work to do and Ed always has his bag packed, so he can get it done!
