By BBN Staff: Belize’s Minister of Tourism and Diaspora Relations, Anthony Malher, issued a statement this week, honoring the life of Sandals Resort founder Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart – a renowned figure in the Caribbean Tourism Industry.

Malher said that Stewart had investments in the restaurant, airline, automotive, retail, and media industries and provided employment for thousands of people across the region. Speaking on Stewart’s character, Malher said that he was a man of integrity and professionalism.

“Mr. Stewart was a true visionary who raised the bar on tourism standards and led by example at every juncture of his illustrious career. Through his hard work, passion, and determination, he founded Sandals Resorts International, a chain of all-inclusive, luxury resorts which are an integral part of the Caribbean tourism experience,” Malher said. “On behalf of Belize’s Ministry of Tourism and Diaspora Relations, and the Belizean hospitality sector, I express my heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Gordon “Butch” Stewart. May God give you strength, peace, and comfort during this difficult time.”
