Maurice L. Stewart Biography
Maury Stewart, CLU®, ChFC®, CLF®, has dedicated his leadership and passion for life insurance to Penn Mutual for over 50 years.
Being a leader is something that is natural to Maury. Growing up in rural Iowa during World War II, he lost his mother at an early age and was forced to take over his family's 800-acre farm when he was only 13 years old.
In 1948 Maury enlisted in the Army Air Force and just three years later, he joined the war effort in Korea. Taking great pride in defending his country's freedom, Maury flew over 50 bombing missions. Due to his courageous efforts, Maury has been recognized in The American College's recent book, The American College Salutes The Greatest Generation .
He married in 1952 and decided to start his career as an agent for Penn Mutual in their Topeka, Kansas location. Maury then took over their Philadelphia office in 1960, and it became the top agency for Penn Mutual for 12 consecutive years under his leadership.
In addition to his long-lasting commitment with Penn Mutual, Maury has also made many contributions to The American College, particularly to the Chartered Leadership Fellow® program. He has worked from the beginning concept stages until today by generously providing his knowledge and expertise on leadership. The CLF® program delivers four capstones every year, and from 1999-2004, Maury taught in every capstone program. He believes that because of the relevant coursework and skills training, The American College is the fundamental source of education in our industry.
Maury also strongly believes in giving back to the community and to the industry that has been so good to him. He is President of the Board of the Visiting Nurse Association of Greater Philadelphia, where he actively strives to make a difference in people's lives. He has also been a member of GAMA International since 1955. In 2004, Maury was recognized with the honor of induction into GAMA's Hall of Fame, something he feels is one of his greatest achievements.
