Marriott Marketing Chief that brought us Bonvoy OUT

I will withhold from commenting for now. Can't seem to get the full article to post. Full article was posted on the Bonvoy Elite FB group by someone.

Her joke was on Marriott and all of us -- Bon Voyage!

Gotta love the spin on AdWeek about it -- "successful campaign". Um... I guess it is if you're happy that Bonvoy'd became a synonym for getting screwed over, even outside the FT community.

Thank you Karin Timpone for helping guide Marriott through the largest and most successful merger in the history of the hospitality industry.
Despite what the naysayers and chronic whiners have to say, this merger was much easier and caused far fewer customer disruptions and inconveniences than almost all others at this level, i.e. Continental/United.
I love my Bonvoy Titanium status..

I really hope that response was in jest...

It really has to be in jest to get a rise out of us...

Hope Hilton doesn't think all Marriott employees are worth poaching.

Don't run until you are sure where she is heading. Hilton is smarter than that.
