“John Peyton brings extensive strategic leadership experience with world-class brands from his time at Starwood as both an operator and a franchisor in a multi-brand organization,” said Realogy CEO Alex Perriello in a press release.

“We are excited about the fresh perspective and valuable insights he will bring from the luxury hotel and leisure industry to our franchisees and their affiliated agents.”

Before coming to Realogy, Peyton most recently served as the senior vice president of Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide, where he managed the brand-building, marketing and operations initiatives for well-known hospitality brands such as W Hotels, Le Meridien, Sheraton and Aloft.

“Realogy has a tremendous portfolio of brands that is unrivaled in the real estate industry,” said Peyton in a press release.
