Graham Stevens dies

Leading broker Graham Stevens has died in Melbourne after a battle with cancer.

Mr Stevens, most commonly known by his nickname “Bear”, was President of the National Insurance Brokers Association in 2014-15, and also served a two-year term as President of the World Federation of Insurance Intermediaries.

He was also a member of the Steadfast board prior to its public float, and continued to serve as a member of the Steadfast Foundation.

Mr Stevens is survived by his wife Norma, daughters Rachael and Melinda and two grand-daughters.

A private funeral will be followed later this month by a celebration of his life.
