Former Prime Minister PJ Patterson has praised Gordon “Butch” Stewart as a “quintessential marketer” who he said lived by a motto in which he sought at all times to exceed expectations.
Stewart, the founder and chairman of the Appliance Traders Group of Companies, which includes Sandals and Beaches Resorts and the Jamaica Observer, died last night. He was 79.
Describing Stewart as a man who “shared” throughout his lifetime, Patterson hailed Stewart as a man who found his passion and relentlessly pursued it.
Patterson further extended his condolences to Stewart’s family — both personal and corporate.
