Louisville-based Marriott Business Services to transfer to Accenture

Posted:

LOUISVILLE (WATE) - Marriott is dropping its connection with Marriott Business Services (MBS), based out of Louisville.

Marriott announced Wednesday that under a ten-year agreement Accenture will take over business services for the company.

Accenture will create a new business service called Accenture Hospitality Services (AHS), which will provide management consulting, technology and business process outsourcing services.

The Louisville-based offices of MBS will become an Accenture center.

According to a news release, the arrangement is meant to save money for Marriott's hotel owners by offering lower cost business services through Accenture.

A Marriott spokesperson said that all current MBS employees can remain in their jobs and said the company plans to expand its workforce as the collaboration moves forward.
