Romney, a 2008 candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, previously served on the Bethesda, Md.-based company's board from 1992 to 2002.

"He will provide strong guidance as our company navigates the challenges of the dynamic global financial system and economy," said J.W. "Bill" Marriott Jr., the company's chairman and chief executive.

Romney, 61, will head the Marriott board's newly formed finance committee. The panel will oversee the company's financial performance and capital spending.
