Adam Stewart has been appointed executive chairman of Sandals Resorts International, succeeding his late father Gordon “Butch” Stewart in the role, Caribbean Journal has learned.
Adam Stewart becomes just the second chairman of the company in its 40-year history.
“We could never have imagined the monumental impact that our resorts have had around the world. It has been a remarkable journey to have built brands that play a part in so many of our customers’ happiest moments. Our team is the best in the world, and I am incredibly proud of the work they do every day of life to put our customers first, as we carry forward,” said Stewart, who served alongside his father for more than two decades.
Stewart has served as CEO and, most recently, deputy chairman of Sandals, helping to oversee Sandals’ rapid expansion across the Caribbean.
“Some people are dreamers, and some are doers; my dad was the magical combination of both. He was fiercely passionate about offering a product that would exceed expectations, and we are incredibly honored to continue his pursuit of innovation, raising the bar, and creating landmark moments for our valued guests,” Stewart said.
