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.

Food & Beverage: Remarkably Resilient


In the wake of the devastation that disrupted every aspect of their operations, the hotel food & beverage industry is proceeding with cautious optimism and a measure of hope as it re-emerges from the pandemic's darker days. It is also bringing forward all the lessons learned from the challenges that were faced, and integrating them into their current, day-to-day operations. For example, new digital interfaces that minimize physical contact, including tableside ordering systems and QR code menus. Here to stay are also features such as packaged room service meals and cocktails; on-property, quick-service food options; a greater emphasis on outdoor dining and pop-up restaurants; gourmet home meal kits; live-streamed cooking classes; and virtual wine-tastings. Still, some challenges remain, such as coping with a persistent labor shortage and maintaining scrupulous sanitation standards. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on what some leading hotels are doing to integrate these changes into their F&B operations as they rebound with a remarkable resiliency.
