Stewart’s proactive approach to the business allowed him to quickly secure himself a reputation as an expert in the Industrial Sales and Leasing Division, focusing on Design/Build transactions, sales and leasing of industrial buildings and land sales.

In the past five years they have created a North American wide group of food facility teams in 14 major markets across North America.

Adept and experienced with all phases of the sales process: from lead generation, through customer research, negotiating, to contracting and closing the sale, to after-sales client servicing.
Accountable for profitability with large and small enterprises, having owned and operated my own business successfully. Starting with “big picture” objectives and opportunities/obstacles and then putting systems, resources and people in place for everyday operational effectiveness.
