Terry Stewart

Terry is a Deke from Phi Chi - Rutgers '69, and attended Rutgers on a scholarship where he played baseball (poorly as he describes it.) He was chapter president, and in addition to two undergraduate degrees, also has an MBA and JD in Law, both at Cornell.

After an initial career in the banking industry and the world of mergers and acquisitions, Brother Stewart, a lifelong collector of comic books and record albums, joined Marvel Comics, eventually becoming its President, COO and Vice Chairman. From there he moved to Cleveland to accept the position as the CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, a role in which he served since 1999 until his retirement in 2013, during which time the Hall has drastically improved all aspects of its operation and marketing, and has become a true force in the world of Rock and Roll. 

His collection of comic books and records has now expanded to concert and movie posters, rock and roll memorabilia, and jukeboxes and is considered a world-class collection.

Terry has long been active in civic and philanthropic endeavors, and was elected into the Rutgers University Hall of Distinguished Alumni. He was the Guest Speaker at the Closing Banquet of the 2012 Deke Convention in Tuscaloosa, and joined the Board shortly thereafter.
