Notes "Hoplamazian had little training in lodging, but plenty in numbers. He earned an undergraduate degree in economics at Harvard in 1985 and worked as an analyst, banker, and consultant on Wall Street before attending business school at the University of Chicago. Jay Pritzker hired him straight out of there in 1989, and put him to work in the Pritzker Organization, which controlled both a large real-estate portfolio and a huge industrial conglomerate. Most of the latter subsequently was sold, as Marmon Group, to Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRKA)."
