Mitt Romney has rejoined the Marriott International Board, the company said in a news release. His term begins Monday. 

"It is an honor to once again be able to serve in the company of leaders like [executive chairman] Bill Marriott and [company president] Arne Sorenson and to support the work of the tens of thousands of Marriott associates who make Marriott International the renowned success that it is," Romney said in a statement.

It is the former presidential candidate's third time on the board. He served from 1993 to 2002, quitting to serve as governor of Massachusetts and from 2009 to 2011, when he left to run his campaign against President Obama.
