Adam Stewart is Executive Chairman of Sandals and Beaches Resorts, the company founded by his late father, the Hon. Gordon “Butch” Stewart, only the second Chairman in the company’s 40-year history.

His efforts have been recognised by numerous hospitality industry awards including being named the 2015 Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association Hotelier of the Year.

Gordon “Butch” Stewart,
OJ, CD, Hon. LLD
Founder, Sandals & Beaches Resorts
A visionary like Butch Stewart comes along once in a lifetime. He blazed trails in the hospitality industry, and it all began with one resort and a big dream. Forty years later, he turned that dream into the World’s Only 5-Star Luxury Included® Holiday. Today, there are 20 Sandals and Beaches Resorts on 10 islands across the Caribbean — in Jamaica, Antigua, Saint Lucia, Bahamas, Grenada, Barbados, Curaçao, Turks & Caicos.
He also built what analysts estimate to be a billion dollar, privately-owned Jamaican-based empire that includes 24 Caribbean resorts, Appliance Traders Ltd., and the Jamaica Observer newspaper. All told, Butch Stewart spearheaded two-dozen diverse companies that are collectively Jamaica’s largest private sector group, the country’s biggest foreign exchange earner, and its largest non-government employer.
