May 10 LIBPA Meeting: DICK STEWART, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, 303 ASSOCIATES
Mr. Stewart graduated from Beaufort High School in 1967. After graduating from Georgia Southern University in 1971 and teaching school for one year he entered the business world and quickly moved to sales and marketing with Motorola. After nearly 10 years with Motorola, he joined MCI and then went out on his own to form several successful wireless companies, including Transit Communications, which in 1994 became part of Nextel Communications, and Grid Towers and American Tower Corporation. After selling Grid Towers to American Tower Corporation, he returned to Beaufort in 1998 with plans for retirement. However, instead of retirement he found himself creating 303 Associates LLC believing that the inevitable growth coming to the Lowcountry needed to be properly planned for and managed in order to protect the charm and essence of the area. more info!
