Marriott's CEO in a guayabera w/President Obama—awesome!

Barack Obama with Arne Sorenson

This week, Marriott International CEO Arne Sorenson was part of a historic U.S. delegation trip to Cuba. A busy man, he also had to concentrate on the big business at hand—locking down Starwood Hotels & Resorts amid a push by Chinese insurer Anbang.

Still, he made time to snap a pic with President Barack Obama—and, really, that's all that matters! (Can you find him? Hint: He's in a white guayabera—rocking the local threads!)

Here are some more pics from his historic trip.
