Cabot Appoints David Southworth as Special Advisor

Canada, Toronto, Ontario. January 14, 2021

Cabot, developer and operator of a diverse collection of residential, resort, golf club and master-planned communities, announced today that seasoned hospitality developer David Southworth has joined the executive team in a consultancy role as Special Advisor.

Southworth brings extensive and unique experience in hospitality development and management. His past work with private communities that combine both golf and real estate will be a great asset to Cabot as the brand expands its footprint from Nova Scotia to Saint Lucia and British Columbia.

"We are thrilled to welcome David to the Cabot team," said Ben Cowan-Dewar, CEO and Co-founder of Cabot. "His impressive background leading world-renowned golf, residential and hospitality projectswill be invaluable as Cabot embarks on exciting global expansion plans."

The Cabot portfolio includes the award-winning Cabot Cape Breton resort in Nova Scotia, the 400-acre Cabot Saint Lucia resort community in development on the northern tip of Saint Lucia and newly launched Cabot Revelstoke in British Columbia.

During his career, Southworth has developed over $2 billion in golf and hospitality projects and over 4,500 homes and homesites. He began his career with Hyatt Hotels in San Francisco before moving to the Pompano Beach Club in Bermuda. Southworth joined Willowbend Development at its inception as President & CEO and ultimately changed the name of the company to Southworth Development in 2005. He recently parted ways with his namesake company of 30 years to start a new development business and follow his passion of building new companies from the ground up.

Southworth graduated from Cornell University's School of Hotel Administration. A native of Scottsdale, Arizona, Southworth currently resides between Cape Cod and The Bahamas.

Guest Service: Health and Safety First

Though expectations are that hotels will return to some semblance of normalcy in 2021, their highest priority must continue to be the health and safety of guests and employees. To that end, hotels are training their guest service personnel in enhanced cleaning routines, which include the following practices - bathrooms, elevator buttons, remote controls and other high-touch items, are disinfected and cleaned with a higher frequency; all tables, chairs and menus in restaurants are cleaned at a much higher frequency, and after each seating; floor markers in public areas to remind guests and team members to maintain physical distance; hand alcohol stations and disposable gloves in lobbies and restaurants; loose items such as pens, note pads and information material removed from rooms and meeting rooms; limiting the number of seats in restaurants and public areas; and revised food & beverage offerings. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will review how guest service personnel are being trained to maintain health and safety protocols in their operations.
