Rena Reiss, Executive VP, General Counsel and Secretary of Hyatt Hotel Corporation.

RENA HOZORE REISS WAS APPOINTED EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT and general counsel at Bethesda, Maryland-based Marriott International Inc. on Dec. 4. From August 2010 through October 2017, she was executive vice president, general counsel and secretary for Hyatt Hotels Corp., based in Chicago. Both Marriott and Hyatt are global hospitality companies. Reiss graduated from Princeton University and Harvard Law School. Prior to joining Hyatt, she worked at Marriott for 10 years as a hotel development lawyer. Earlier, she worked at Counts & Kanne in Washington, D.C., and was an associate general counsel at the Miami Herald Publishing Co. She started her legal career at Thomson, Muraro, Razook & Hart in Miami. “I love the fact that I learn something new every day,” she said when asked about what she enjoys about her role. “There is no boring day as the general counsel of a global hospitality company. And although I’m originally from the East Coast, I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Chicago—great cultural scene, great food scene and a wonderful civic sensibility that Hyatt and I are plugged in to. And I’ve been lucky to be in Chicago for two Blackhawks Stanley Cups and the Cubs’ historic World Series win.” Marriott operates, franchises and licenses more than 6,400 properties in 126 countries and territories. Hyatt operates, franchises and licenses 739 properties in 57 countries.
