Stewart Edward Cox OAM


A stalwart of the insurance industry with a career spanning over 46 years, Stewart was a tireless professional and passionate supporter of the Northern Territory community at large.

Starting his insurance career in 1972 as an insurance clerk, in 1991, Stewart joined forces with two partners to launch Zuellig Insurance Brokers. Under his guidance, Zuellig grew to become the leading and largest insurance broking firm in the Territory. Sold to OAMPs and then Gallagher, Stewart remained at the helm in the Northern Territory helping clients and mentoring his loyal team.

Stewart’s legacy to the insurance industry not only in the Territory but also throughout Australia was his expertise, his mentoring skills, his dedication to his position, clients and staff and his willingness to share his vast wealth of knowledge.

An avid sports and hockey enthusiast, Stewart became actively involved wherever he could, holding many official positions in sporting clubs and professional associations throughout the Territory. Stewart was awarded OAM in 2007 for “Service to the community of the Northern Territory through a range of sporting and civic organisations, and to the insurance industry.”
