Trewick elected chair of Guidestone board

Renée A. Trewick was elected March 2 by GuideStone Financial Resources trustees to serve as board chair — the first time in the 175-year history of the Southern Baptist Convention an African-American woman has served in such a role.

Trewick, a vice president at insurance firm Marsh USA in New York, said she was “humbled” by her election.

An active Southern Baptist, Trewick served as vice chair of the GuideStone board in 2019. Her other Southern Baptist service includes serving on the executive board and finance committee of her local association. (BP)
