Stewart International serves Orange, one of seven New York counties in the heart of the stunning Hudson Valley, as well as New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. The region is home to America's oldest wine region, more than 60 biotech and pharmaceutical companies and a highly educated workforce. Multinationals based here include IBM, Siemens, Nokia, PepsiCo and Morgan Stanley.
