Stewart Gordon and his family

Stewart and his family enjoy the view of Half Dome in Yosemite.

When asked what his most-used emoji is, Stewart Gordon said, “Smiley face”—a fitting icon for our jovial teammate who, in person, always greets you with a smile.

Stewart’s warmth no doubt contributes to his success connecting fitness and wellness brands to our members. As a sales executive for our brand activation team, he skillfully balances approachability and professionalism to collaborate with entrepreneurs, marketing directors and tradeshow coordinators. It is, in part, thanks to Stewart’s tireless efforts that we can offer our members so many fitness goodies, discounts and networking opportunities at IDEA® World Virtual!

“He’s extremely proactive, full of great ideas and has a terrific sense of humor, and he approaches his work with ethics and responsibility,” says fellow sales executive Steve Roth. Lightheartedly, he adds, “We’ve solved a lot of world problems on our daily walks.”

Just as Stewart strikes a balance at IDEA, he approaches life in general with a sense of equilibrium. He cites basketball, running and meditation as his favorite training methods and says he is most inspired by his kids.
