Rex Maughan- President and CEO of Forever Living
Married to Ruth, with 3 children and 12 grandchildren, he has achieved remarkable success in many fields, none more important than his work in the South Pacific where he was awarded the High Chief title of Tilafaiga for his efforts to save the rain forest.
When Rex served as a missionary on the Samoan Islands in the South Pacific, the author Robert Louis Stevenson, who spent his final years of life there, first captured Rex’s imagination. He developed such a great respect for the Samoan people and their land, that decades later we established the Robert Louis Stevenson Museum and Preservation Foundation for the restoration of Stevenson’s 1890 island plantation home in Apia, Samoa. Today, the museum is a primary attraction for tourists, local visitors and school children.
For 13 years, Rex Maughan was a Vice President with the Del Webb Corporation, and as Executive Vice President of Del E.

He acquired and was responsible for the management and operation of seven resort marinas on Lakes Powell, Mead and Mohave in Arizona and Nevada.
As the General Manager of the Mayer Central Building Corporation, Rex demonstrated exceptional skills in all aspects of property leasing, management and administration involving $50 million in real estate, including hotels, apartment projects and office complexes in Arizona and New York. He was accredited as a Certified Property Manager (CPM) through the Institute of Real Estate Management.
Rex received his B.S. degree in Business Administration at Arizona State University and has completed extensive graduate study in real estate, taxation, auditing, consolidations and mergers. He was the recipient of the degree of Doctor of Humane Letters, honoris causa, in recognition of his exceptional business accomplishments, substantial contributions to this university, and his inspirational commitment to service.
