Stewart Title Announces New Board of Directors Members Deborah Matz and William Corey

HOUSTON (July 27, 2020) – Stewart Information Services announced today the recent appointments of Deborah Matz and William Corey to the company’s board of directors following their election at the annual shareholders’ meeting on June 4, 2020. Matz is currently a member of the board of advisors of tech start-up elphi, as well as an advisory board member for OpenDoor Trading LLC. Prior to joining Stewart’s board, Corey served as an audit, senior relationship and national pursuit team partner for PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP since 2002.

In 2009, Matz was appointed by President Obama to serve as board chairman for the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). In that role, she led the independent agency overseeing the regulation and supervision of federal credit unions and the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund, which, at the time, protected accounts at more than 6,200 federally insured credit unions serving over 102 million members and managed more than $1.2 trillion in assets. She was also one of 10 voting members of the Financial Stability Oversight Council.

Corey has more than 37 years of experience in public accounting, with extensive experience in auditing SEC registrants, financial reporting, complex accounting and internal controls evaluation. Corey is currently on the board of directors of the Port Discovery Children’s Museum and is a member of the board of advisors of the James Madison University College of Business. Prior to his current position, he served as an audit partner and in other roles at Arthur Andersen LLP.

“The addition of these two highly successful individuals brings years of past board and operational experience to an already strong, diverse board,” said Tom Apel, chairman of the Stewart board. “Stewart is in a strong market-position, and with Debbie and Bill’s support, I know we can continue to shape Stewart’s strategic future given their respective backgrounds in finance, accounting and auditing.”

“I look forward to working with Debbie and Bill as we pursue our mission to be the Premier Title Services Company,” said Stewart CEO Fred Eppinger. “Their broad experience further strengthens our board team as we execute on our growth strategies.”

Matz earned a bachelor’s degree in labor and industrial relations from Cornell University and a master’s degree in political science and government from George Washington University.

Corey graduated with honors from James Madison University with a B.B.A. in accounting and finance and a minor in economics.
