In my work with him, Stewart showed particular strength in communicating complex strategy in a clear and concise way to C-Suite level internal and external stakeholders.
— Robert Campbell, Global Go to Market Director, Ecosystem & Channels @ GE Digital
Stewart epitomizes what it means to be successful in ambiguous environments. While working with him on a project with the Guatemalan Ministry of Economy, we faced a number of difficulties ranging from 90 hour work weeks to operating in a completely different culture and language. Stewart kept a cool head throughout and was very much a team player, always going above and beyond his normal job responsibilities. When working in ambiguous environments with limited resources, Stewart is someone you want by your side.
— Porter Searcy, Sr. Program Manager, Corporate & Emerging Markets @ Parchment
Stewart is an adept assessor of talent. He identifies the strengths and weaknesses of a team, carefully delegates tasks to optimize those strengths, and drives the team toward success. Working with Stewart at Thunderbird, I observed many occasions when he moved out of his comfort zone to ensure that he created an environment where his team members could excel and thrive.
