Sandals Resorts International has announced Adam Stewart’s appointment as the resort company’s Executive Chairman. Stewart becomes just the second Chairman in the company’s 40-year history.
He is preceded by his late Father and Chairman, the Hon. Gordon “Butch” Stewart, a pioneer in Caribbean tourism who broke the ceiling of all- inclusive luxury after founding the organization in 1981 and played a pivotal role in bolstering the region’s popularity.
Executive Chairman Adam Stewart assumes the role after working alongside his father for more than two decades, serving as Chief Executive Officer and most recently Deputy Chairman. He has helped oversee the continued rapid expansion of Sandals Resorts International throughout the Caribbean, including the recent announcement of two new island resort destinations, the future Sandals Curaçao and Beaches® Resorts in St. Vincent.
“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,” stated Adam Stewart, Executive Chairman of Sandals Resorts International.
