Early life[edit]

Personal life[edit]

Maughan and his wife, the former Lorraine Hannemann of Honolulu, Hawaii, reside in Manhattan, New York. Lady Maughan is of Samoan heritage, and her father was a teacher and Mormon bishop in Honolulu. Deryck Maughan and Lorraine Hannemann met in London, where she had transferred from Los Angeles, while working as a flight reservation agent for Pan American airlines. After marrying, the Maughans moved to Tokyo,Japan and then to Manhattan. Maughan began using a Samoan name, "Va" as her first name after marrying Maughan. New York Magazine published a scathing article on 12 June 1995 {Vol. 28, No. 24, page 32} by journalist Suzanna Andrews called "Wall Street Weak," in which Deryck and Va Maughan were profiled. It was noted in the article that Va Maughan had been accused by former friends, roommates, and employees of physical violence and threats. Of significant note were statements made by Deryck Maughan's colleagues that Va Maughan had undue influence over Maughan's business decisions while at Saloman Brothers in the 1990s. They subsequently founded a number of scholarships at Stanford University and at Iolani School. They also made a substantial donation to King's College London; the Maughan Library is named in their honour.[1]


Maughan was knighted in 2002.
