The closer connection we are establishing now between the GOC and the regions will strengthen our ability to implement global processes and programs efficiently, while maintaining our ability to adapt quickly to local and regional market needs,” Hoplamazian said. “I expect to maintain a high degree of visibility and engagement with the regional teams as Chuck works to create better coordination and efficiency in areas where a common approach across the Company is appropriate.”
