Choice's commitment to the communities in which our associates and franchisees live and work isn't new – the company was founded upon the mainstay of community service, and this spirit is proudly fostered inside and outside of our doors each day. In the past couple of years alone, we've significantly expanded our sustainability efforts; worked to reduce systematic barriers to hotel ownership; and fueled action against human trafficking, including as an End Child Prostitution, Pornography and Trafficking (ECPAT) catalyst partner, but we know our work isn't done. Today, Choice is poised to build on these efforts, which is why we are proud to appoint Megan to the helm of this critical function. Megan is a passionate leader and a longtime champion of the Choice brand and community. This, coupled with her broad industry knowledge, makes her the ideal candidate to take our ESG program to the next level.
