Prior to Hilton, Corbin held multiple senior leadership positions, including in-house counsel for Sunrise Senior Living, Inc. and The Mills Corporation. In addition, he had a successful career as a trial lawyer and partner in a law firm based in Washington, D.C. Corbin also cofounded a venture capital fund that invested in high-technology and commercial real estate.
Corbin holds a juris doctorate from University of Dayton School of Law and a bachelor’s degree from The Citadel.
