In 1974 Trowbridge pioneered timesharing in North America with the development of Sanibel Beach Club on Sanibel Island, Florida, a 31-unit purpose-built timeshare project completely sold out in 18 months. He founded Captran Resorts International, Ltd. and has been involved in the development and marketing of 35 timeshare resorts in the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean.
Trowbridge earned the respect of his peers and has served as president of the Resort Timesharing Council and on the board of directors of the American Land Development Association, a forerunner to the American Resort Development Association, or ARDA. He has written a book sharing his timeshare industry knowledge and experience, Resort Timesharing: How You Can Invest In Inflation-Proof Vacations for Life (Simon and Schuster Publishers still available at Amazon.com) and co-authored with Richard J. Lynge The Real Estate Broker's Guide to Resort Timesharing (Real Estate Education Company). Trowbridge also brought his industry expertise and his academic credentials together and taught college-level resort management courses at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida.
Once retired, after more than 20 years in timeshare development, Trowbridge found himself frequently being asked by timeshare friends and associates to make informal recommendations of executive management candidates. Two years later he formed the specialty firm, Executive Quest, Inc., designed to find timeshare industry-qualified executive management candidates for a just a few clients at first and in the United States. But soon Mexico and Caribbean placements followed. Then Asia. Fifteen years later the company has had a hundred clients in a dozen countries and a couple thousand timeshare-specific resumes at hand. Executive Quest is now the leading executive search firm in the timeshare industry.
