The Florida Board of Governors reappointed S. Lawrence Kahn, III, president and CEO of Lowell Homes, Inc., and Albert Maury ’96 ’02, president and CEO of Leon Medical Centers Health Plans, to serve on Florida International University’s Board of Trustees.
“I am deeply honored by this opportunity to serve FIU for another term,” said Kahn, who has served on the BOT since 2009. “I have been a proud member of the FIU family for 10 years and I am honored to continue serving. Together, we will continue to steer FIU through these challenging times.”
In 2001, he joined the FIU Foundation Board of Directors and became its chair in 2006.
Kahn is the founder of Lowell Homes, a developer and builder of residential communities throughout the state of Florida. The company has built thousands of housing units since 1986. He also serves as vice chairman of the Baptist Hospital of Miami Board of Directors and is a past president of Builders Association of South Florida and a member of the Board of Governors of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce.
Kahn completed his B.A. at Amherst College in 1968 and earned a Master’s in business administration from Harvard University School of Business in 1972.
Kahn, who is originally from Memphis, lives with his wife Susan in Coral Gables. They have three adult children – Lauren Uzarek, Lowell Kahn, M.D. and Lani Drody – and four grandchildren, all of whom live in South Florida.
Maury, who holds bachelor degrees in business administration and accounting from FIU, is the first undergraduate alumnus appointed to the BOT. He has an extensive background in health care finance, executive negotiations, budgeting and contracting.
“It has been a privilege to give back to my alma mater in this role,” said Maury, who has served on the BOT since 2007. “I am proud of the progress we have made as an institution and I am humbled by the trust the Board of Governors have placed in me to continue to serve FIU.”
In addition to his professional accomplishments, Maury is an active board member of the Bertha Abess Children’s Center and served on the board of the Alliance for Aging for six years.
Maury lives in Miami with his wife Silvia and their four children, Alexandra, Steffany, Katerina and Albert, Jr.
