Fred Sawyers

Following the successful launch of Evermore Orlando Resort earlier this year, property owner and developer Dart Interests has announced the addition of Orlando hospitality veteran Fred Sawyers to lead the resort as Managing Director. Sawyers will lead the day-to-day operations of the innovative resort while the previous Managing Director through the opening phase, Wally Zak, has been promoted to Vice President of Asset Management for Dart Interests.

Sawyers brings a wealth of experience and knowledge of the Orlando market, including leading multi-faceted resort complexes. Over the last decade, Sawyers successfully ran Disney-area resorts for two nationally renowned hotel brands. In his role at Evermore, Sawyers will oversee operations of the Orlando destination offering what today’s travelers seek, including vacation home rentals in a resort setting with unparalleled amenities and guest service. 

“We’re moving into an important phase of operational stability and excellence, establishing the resort’s unique value to our target consumer while providing an exceptional Evermore experience,” said Stewart Brown, Executive Vice President of Dart Interests. “Fred’s reputation as a valued leader and his vast experience make him ideal to carry our one-of-a-kind resort into its next phase of operation.” 

“Leading Evermore is truly a one-of-a-kind opportunity,” said Sawyers. “As such an innovative concept, we have a blank canvas for what can come next. Dart Interests built an awe-inspiring resort. My predecessor, Wally Zak, brought on an incredible team, and now we’re ready to explore the full range of possibilities to achieve our mission of bringing people together.” 

Sawyers is an established leader within the Orlando tourism community having served on the board of directors for both Central Florida Hotel and Lodging Association, as well as Visit Orlando. He graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Stanford University.
