Greg currently serves as the global Vice President of Data & Analytics for Marriott Vacations Worldwide, a leader in delivering world class vacation experiences through the Sheraton, Westin, and Marriott Vacation Club brands. Here he leads a multi-disciplinary data science and advanced analytics team focused on driving marketing efficiency and improving the customer experience. He has led data science, business intelligence, and customer analytics teams in a variety of industries over the last twenty years, as well as consulting for several non-profits.
