Maram Alaiwat

Vice President of Business Development

Prior to her transition to Preferred Financial Planners, Maram was a Partner with a fortune one hundred insurance company and has been an agent and Registered Representative since 2012. During her first 18 months in the financial industry at New York Life Insurance and Securities, Maram achieved both President's Council and Million Dollar Round Table* membership, and over a dozen awards including Life Case Rate Leader Award, Life Stars Individual Life Award, Career Life Producer Award, LIMRA Award for Largest Life Insurance Face Amount, Rookie of the Year and New Associate of the Year Awards, the Life Foundation Award, Greater San Francisco General Office MVP of the Year (Life Sales) Award, Cultural Market Awards, and the Greater San Francisco General Office Agency Builder of the Year Award for 2015.  Also, during her time in the high performing San Francisco based office, Maram was continuously appointed as part of office's Leadership team and was a mentor to her fellow new agents. She used her training in conflict resolution and background in collaborative leadership to help mitigate challenging situations in a large office environment. As an effective advocate, Maram’s peers elected her to serve as a member of the San Francisco Office's Agent Advisory Board for three years in a row to represent their interests to management, and she remained on the Board throughout her time in San Francisco.

Maram relocated to a Detroit based office in October 2016 to be closer to elderly family. During her few short months in Detroit, Maram has achieved a “Triple Crown Award” for production and Agent of the Year for 2016. She accomplished this while being an MDRT member and mentor and helping other agents become first time members of MDRT.

In late 2019, Maram realized that she could not expand on her interests in empowering and serving disenfranchised communities while being captive in a corporate position. Now, at Preferred Financial Partners, she works with a team of equally committed leaders who are focused on education and improving the quality of life for all communities. 

Maram Alaiwat has a bachelor's degree in Health Services Administration from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida and a Masters’ Degree in Collaborative Educational Leadership from Fielding Graduate University in Santa Barbara, California. In addition, Ms. Alaiwat has completed doctoral level coursework (PhD and EdD) in “organizational development and behavior”, “corporate ethics”, “structural inequality and the wealth gap” and “systems thinking”.

Maram currently resides in Riverview, Michigan and also maintains a home in the Bay Area. She enjoys spending time with her three sons and two horses, Abby and Sky, who she donates to an after-school program in Woodside, CA to help children with special needs. 

Many evenings, you will find Maram working with local public-school administrators and the American Lung Association to further the cause of clean air, healthy lungs and smoke cessation. In fact, Maram currently sits on the Detroit Leadership Board of the American Lung Association where she was recently elected as Chair of the Nomination Committee.

Maram is also a Trustee of Detroit Public TV and Radio, and enjoys her role helping advise and develop Detroit Public TV and WRCJ Radio, including the Michigan Learning Channel.
