The Chairman, management and staff of Sandals Resorts International and the ATL Group, extend heartiest congratulations to our Chief Executive Officer/Deputy Chairman, Adam Stewart who was recently named Caribbean Hotelier of the Year by the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association.
The region and indeed the world have come to know him as we have always known him — as a caring, driven and dynamic leader with a passion for people and the hospitality industry. To say we are proud would be a gross understatement and we join with him in celebrating this well-deserved accomplishment.
Under his leadership and wise guidance, Sandals Resorts International has grown from strength to strength, repeatedly earning the coveted title of World’s Leading All Inclusive Company at the annual World Travel Awards. In addition, the company has experienced ‘game changing’ developments such as its first resorts in Barbados and Grenada, the addition of the Italian and Key West Villages at Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa and the launch of Sandals Emerald Bay in the Bahamas in 2010. Motivated by his passion for sharing the Caribbean with others, Stewart also launched the Caribbean’s premier luxury tour company, Island Routes Adventure Tours, which offers countless unique island experiences in 11 countries throughout the region.
His commitment to human resource development has been evident through the launch and continuous growth of the Sandals Corporate University, the return of the Management Trainee Programme and the introduction of several other training and development initiatives.
As President of the Sandals Foundation, a nonprofit organisation that fulfills the promise of the Caribbean community through investment in sustainable projects in education, community and environment, our CEO has led the charge on all our philanthropic efforts, driving home the importance of always giving back.
A young leader with vision, purpose and promise, there is none more deserving of this honour than Adam Stewart and we are happy to call him our own.
