Kenneth B. Dart
Kenneth Dart is the founder of Dart Enterprises and a portfolio of companies in the Cayman Islands, including Active Capital, Dart Development and Dart Real Estate. The Dart group of companies has a global presence with investments in Europe, the US and Caribbean and spans a range of industries including real estate, hospitality, retail, entertainment, finance and biotech.
Originally from Michigan, USA, Ken Dart moved to Grand Cayman in the early 1990s. Recognising the uniqueness of the island, both as a place to make his home and as a base for business, he opened a small family office in 1993 with three employees. Some 25 years later that investment office has grown to become the headquarters of Dart’s global operations. During that time Mr. Dart has invested more than $1.5 billion in the Cayman Islands and employs nearly 500 people.
Guided by the Dart values, culture and philosophy, the companies founded by Ken Dart are recognised as among the best places to work in the Cayman Islands. Drawing from three generations of the Dart family focus on education, Dart contributes significantly to the development of STEM educational programmes and awards high school and university scholarships based on academic excellence.
