Stewart Ray was born in Woodbridge, just north of Toronto, where he studied Business at York University (Go Lions!) and is an Associate of the Insurance Institute of Canada.
He spent the first half of his career in product development working for two of Canada’s largest fine paper manufacturers, where he specialized in security & currency products.
Returning to his wife’s (of 30 years) roots in Pembroke, he left the paper industry in the mid-90s, to start their family, and a small insurance agency where he has represented State Farm for the past 20 years.
As well as serving on the Corporate Board, Mr. Ray is an active member of his local Pembroke-Renfrew County Program Board.
