Del Mar Foundation elects new board member

Stephen Lutz

The Del Mar Foundation recently announced the election of local resident Stephen Lutz to its board of directors. Lutz has owned a business in Del Mar for 19 years, having purchased the landmark restaurant Stratford Court Cafe in 1993.  Frustrated by the lackluster service and ever increasing insurance premiums he encountered with the restaurant’s commercial insurance and his family’s own insurance, Lutz obtained his insurance license with the goal of giving clients the level of service and competitive premiums he longed for as a business owner. Lutz & Means Insurance Services opened in 2006 and offers a full array of customized personal and commercial insurance solutions to individuals and companies in California, Arizona, Washington and Oregon.

Lutz earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst where he met his wife, Lisa, during the first week of school in 1985.  Lisa has dedicated significant volunteer time with the Del Mar Foundation as both a past board director and the Chair of the Children’s Committee.  Steve and Lisa are also Founding Endowment Circle members.

An avid runner and triathlete, Steve Lutz enjoys playing tennis, biking and hiking with his three children.  He has served as a volunteer for Fresh Start Surgical Gifts for children and twice a week you can find him volunteering as a crossing guard at Del Mar Heights Elementary School.
