Last week, the world lost a legend. Personally, I lost someone I respected. admired and adored.
Butch Stewart, the founder and chairman of Sandals and Beaches passed away leaving an amazing legacy.
I looked up to him as a smart, driven innovative businessman, however, the basis of my admiration came from watching him interact with all of the teams at the resorts. Mr. Stewart addressed them by name and always asked about their families. He was kind and caring with each one of them.
I had the pleasure of observing him interact with his staff, friends, and family, and feel blessed to have known him. Rest well, Butch Stewart. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to be a small part of your very big life.
