Glenn Wilson
Vice President, International Interior Design Marriott International

Higher Learning

the d. school—the Institute of Design at Stanford. I just returned from the Innovation Masters Series, where we were immersed in the philosophy of ‘design thinking.’ IDEO’s David Kelley and David Beach, Stanford professor of mechanical engineering, were both great creative minds and very inspiring.



Patricia Urquiola. There’s a handcrafted feel to her work that sets her apart and fascinates me.


Family Member
My grandmother. She spent hour upon hour teaching me to knit, sew, crochet, and bead. It was through her that I developed a love for textiles and for creating.

I grew up in Halifax, North Carolina, where there are many historically significant buildings from the 1700s. My first job was at a state historic site, giving tours. The job taught me about architecture, interiors, furnishings, and decorative arts that sparked an interest in what became my career.


J.W. ‘Bill’ Marriott. I’ve had the good fortune to work directly with him for years. I always learn from him. He’s a true legend.
