CERRITOS, CA — (01-08-20) — Sportsheets International founder and CEO Tom Stewart retires after 27 Years. Tom Stewart announces his retirement to also let you know that he will be spending his time giving back through his non-profit organization.
After 27 years in business—which translates to 9,855 days, 408 weeks or 324 months of dedication, innovation, projects, product education, tradeshows and life-long relationships—the Sportsheets founder and CEO is retiring and taking his gifts to the nonprofit sector.
“Retirement is not unfamiliar to me since I retired as a Commander from the Naval Reserves in 2007,” said Stewart. “But one of the most exciting things about this retirement is that I’m able to leave the company in the capable hands of my sister, Julie Stewart, who’s been my partner for over two decades and the President of Sportsheets since 2012. As the sole owner of Sportsheets, Julie will be taking the company into the next decade and beyond,” said Stewart.
This doesn’t mean Tom won’t be as busy as ever. Five years ago he started a nonprofit organization focusing on sourcing, refurbishing and donating drum sets into underfunded schools. As in the past, creativity will forever be at the forefront of Tom’s heart, and by solely concentrating on D4D, he is now able to help other creative people thrive.
“I’ll be concentrating my efforts on Carl Stewart’s Drums For Drummers,” added Stewart. “For the past five years I’ve been dedicated to placing donated drum sets into underfunded schools with music programs,” said Stewart.
“You might, however, see me on the road now and then and maybe even at tradeshows; I look forward to seeing our friends and customers again wherever we may cross paths. I am beyond grateful to the industry and the friends I have made along the way that allowed for so many wonderful memories, experiences, and successes. I wish you all the best!” said Stewart.
Julie Stewart adds, “Tom’s innovative vision and inspiration has built our great company, and I’m beyond thankful to carry his mission forward with the phenomenal team we’ve built together. We all look forward to continued success and exciting new paths in this coming decade.” said Stewart.
With the announcement of Sportsheets International founder Tom Stewart retiring, marks the beginning of the next generation of Sportsheets.
