SALT LAKE CITY -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Mindshare Technologies, a leader in Voice of the Customer (VoC) technologies, today announced that Steve Weisz, president and chief executive officer of Marriott Vacations Worldwide Corporation (VAC), has been appointed chairman of the company’s illustrious board of trustees.
“Mindshare has some very big ambitions for the future, and as we aggressively pursue our long-term goals, we need a solid leadership team in place to give us thoughtful and effective direction,” said John Sperry, CEO of Mindshare. “Rich Hanks, our former board president, has decided to leave in order to pursue his philanthropic endeavors full time.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time as a member of Mindshare’s board, and I am honored that they have now asked me to preside as chairman,” said Weisz. “This is a company that has already accomplished some spectacular growth—both in terms of company size and as a burgeoning leader in the industry—and I look forward to helping them discover additional potentials.”
Weisz has enjoyed a 41-year career affiliated with Marriott International, and has served in several leadership capacities throughout his tenure. Prior to his current position, Weisz served as president of Marriott Vacation Club for 14 years, where he led the vacation ownership division and oversaw three brands under the department’s umbrella. Additionally, Weisz has served on numerous boards for organizations in the hospitality industry, as well as Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, for which he was a past chairman of the board of governors and currently serves as vice-chair of its board of trustees.
