So this has been an extraordinary period for the travel and hospitality business. And i'm eager to get into what's been changing most recently. And how you and mary it and preparing. But i have to begin by asking you about arne. Sorenson your longtime colleague and the ceo of marian who succumbed to cancer earlier this year. He was on this show as a guest last fall in october and he seemed great vibrant. He was closely engaged in guiding mary. It through the pandemic talking quite optimistic about the future and then it seem quite suddenly that the cancer returned and he passed away. Did it seem to you. It did on one hand in the fall and into the winter of two thousand and twenty. Arnie was doing much better. Pancreatic cancer is a very very difficult cancer so we were all well aware of the statistics. And that it's a tough one to battle. But he was doing quite well at the end of the year and then the beginning part of the year. He took a turn for the worse and then died suddenly in february and it's been on on top of the pandemic and the devastating impact of cova to our business. Losing arnie has been heartbreaking. It's really been heartbreaking. I've known him for well over twenty years. I know you knew arnie well. He was not only a remarkable ceo. He was a remarkable human being. I miss him terribly personally and our company misses him. But one thing about arnie. I can tell you for sure is he would tell us to wipe our tears and our new. Ceo tony capital on. Who's a longtime colleague of mine as well and he would tell us to wipe our tears and get back to the business running mary up for the hundreds of thousands of people. Who are depending on us. Did you talk in advance about if a transition came. How would be handled a little bit. You know marriott had of course. The board and arnie had a plan for succession. Planning like any big public company does what we really talked about was more in the context of just how we were going to come together as a leadership team to navigate through this and while it may not have been said explicitly. I knew he was saying to tony and myself into the rest of the leadership team. You need to keep pushing forward through this no matter what was kind of unsaid no matter what even if i'm not here is again. Just a tremendous leader. So you and tony. You took over i on an interim basis and have. Tony is ceo and us president. How does that partnership work. You're running the operational pieces largely. Yes i am running. All the consumer parts of the company which i was previously running so sales and marketing and brand also running technology and then we've launched a lot of new businesses over the past few years all tied to our loyalty program. Mary up on voy. And i'm also running in this. New role as president are real estate development group so working with third parties to new hotels around the world. I'm running our global design organization so the interior designers that work with our brand leaders on that front and then our global operations grew. So i am running those different departments and partnering with tony on strategy issues. Things are getting much better but it's still tough going is no you know. Yeah you're two. Biggest markets are at the us and china both of which are largely domestic driven. Yes and those domestic markets are becoming more robust europe though relies a lot more on tourism and business travel from the americas and from asia. How is that market responding to zoom out for a second things are getting better from a global perspective and it might be good to a little context. How bad things were last year in the depths of the crisis in two thousand and twenty our business was down. Ninety percent are hotels were at single digit occupancy. We had twenty five percent of our hotels closed. hundreds of thousands of our associates. Globally were either laid off or on reduced workweeks..

But I choke up because I just think of the profound impact to the lives of folks who have Zero responsibility for the crisis that we're in. And who will pay a price, which is much higher than they deserve to pay. They don't deserve to pay any price. And so we've got to find a way of communicating with them being transparent with them. To get through this together, we will. Ultimately people will come back to life because we're resilient people all across the globe, including particularly in the United States. But we got to get there sooner rather than later in order to minimize the pain that so many will bear. Arnie Sorensen last year on this program, the CEO of Marion.

How many have you been able to bring back? Less aggression there, of course, the impact of Covid nineteen has been profound on our business. We've seen. By Revenue Sales, at army tells by ninety percent globally starting of course I in China then moving around the world as we got into March. And are low point. We had about two thousand, nine, hundred seventy five hundred hotels that were closed around the world. We've probably reopened three to four hundred of those I. Think when we look at even in the United States.
