USC Marshall School of Business | Groups



Hi and Welcome to T&HC! 

This is an exciting time for the travel & hospitality industry as the world is celebrating the return to travel, and we are delighted to have you join us this year. As your incoming President, I am thrilled to work with you all to strategically design within the industry from Fortune 500 companies to emerging startups that are flourishing with job opportunities, all while having fun with it.

A little bit about me. I am from the D.C. area originally and ventured north for my undergrad degree at the University of Vermont. Prior to Marshall, I worked in Global Brand & Marketing at Marriott International within M Live, Marriott International’s real-time marketing and social media command center. There, I supported the launch of Marriott Bonvoy, experiential marketing and brand partnerships within social strategy. While I absolutely loved working in the industry, I wanted to shift focus to gain a better understanding of the holistic business experience. Over the summer, I had the best time interning for AB InBev (NAZ) within Procurement & Supply, supporting the commercial team in value creation for marketing procurement as well as the packaging team to implement new pricing strategy across primary and secondary suppliers.

If there is one thing you should know about me, it’s that I love to travel. From planning trips to exploring innovative technology that can accelerate the state of the industry, travel and hospitality have always been a passion of mine. I plan to incorporate my connections and experience (as well as my amazing board’s) to foster insightful conversations and events that will provide a better understanding of the industry niches and generate a more opportunities to network with alums.

Please feel free to reach out with anything, I am always happy to help or make an intro. I look forward to meeting you all on-campus this fall.

As always, Fight On! 

Margaret Nealon
President, Travel & Hospitality Club
