Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Drawing on more than four decades of experience in insurance and risk management, Mr. Harper is distinguished as the global sports and events practice leader and managing director for Marsh USA Inc., a leading provider of industry-focused brokerage, consulting, and claims advocacy services to help reduce clients' total cost of risk. In this capacity, he manages the activities of a global network of risk and insurance professionals who are specifically dedicated to working with sports federations, organizing committees of sporting events, professional teams and leagues, and sports' governing organizations. Under Mr. Harper's leadership, his team offers insurance program design and brokerage services to provide services like risk identification and assessment, contingency planning, venue safety audits, claims management services, and operational readiness. A leader in his field, his expertise saw him recognized by Risk Insurance Magazine as a Power Broker in Sports Entertainment in 2009.

Prior to joining the Marsh USA Inc. team in 2000, Mr. Harper served as the risk manager at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games, an opportunity he considers to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Growing up, Mr. Harper's parents, Blanton Harper, Sr., and Emma Ethel Harper, instilled in him the value of education as a means to a better life.

A volunteer in both professional and civic realms, Mr. Harper sits on the advisory board of the Sports and Entertainment Risk Management Alliance (SERMA®) and on the boards of the Atlanta Youth Academy and the Georgia Pet Coalition.
