Marriott International has named Carlton Ervin as global development officer, international, and Noah Silverman as global development officer, US and Canada.
These high-profile appointments follow hot on the heels of Marriott International’s decision to make Anthony Capuano its new CEO and Stephanie Linnartz its president, following the unexpected passing of former boss Arne Sorenson last month.

Marriott’s latest leadership moves

In his role as global development officer, international, Carlton Ervin will oversee the group’s expansion and development in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America, as well as Asia Pacific. Noah Silverman, meanwhile, will oversee all brand development across the US and Canada.
“Noah and Carlton have been instrumental in driving Marriott’s rooms growth and incredibly strong development pipeline,” said Linnartz. “Their proven track record positions them well to lead global development as we move forward. Their combined experience, strategic vision and relationships with the owner and franchisee communities around the world will help to advance the company’s growth strategy, including expansion into new and underserved markets.”
As of the end of 2020, Marriott’s development pipeline totalled almost 2,900 properties, amounting to more than 498,000 rooms.

Bringing Ervin’s experience to bear in an expanded role

Ervin, who most recently served as chief development officer for Europe, Middle East and Africa, has been with the company for 21 years. In that time, he has played a key role in the acquisition and European rollout of the AC by Marriott brand, as well as the integration of the Starwood Hotels and Resorts acquisition and European development of the Moxy brand.
Ervin received his JD from Harvard Law School and a dual BA in economics and political science from Duke University, before starting his career with Marriott as an attorney focused on supporting development in the Caribbean and Latin America.
He became a vice president in development for this region in 2002 and took on the role of chief development officer for the same area in 2005. Ervin was appointed chief development officer for Europe in 2008, and the Middle East and Africa were added to his portfolio in 2020.
