The votes are in and Risk & Insurance®‘s profile of insurance industry legend Hank Greenberg has won a gold award from the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE).

In a wide-ranging discussion with R&I editors last fall, Mr. Greenberg provided unique insights into global trade, his past battles and what the future holds for the industry and his company.

Risk & Insurance would like to thank Mr. Greenberg and his team at the Starr Companies for their assistance in lining up the interview, which you can read here.

R&I Earns Three Additional Silvers 

Other pieces garnering awards from the ASBPE, included a silver for our 2018 Black Swans coverage, written by associate editor Katie Dwyer and digital producer Autumn Heisler.

Viral Fear: How a Global Pandemic Kills an Economy, written by Dwyer, depicts a killer global pandemic the likes of which hasn’t been seen in a century.

A Mega-Tsunami Is Coming; Can the East Coast Even Prepare?, written by Heisler, profiles an Atlantic mega-tsunami, which would wipe out lives and commerce along the East Coast.

We owe our gratitude to RMS, AIR Worldwide, Metabiota and the National Association of Insurance Commissioners for their contributions to the Black Swan stories.

Another silver was awarded to feature article Crewless Ships Raise Questions by long-time contributor Gregory DL Morris. Companies that contributed to that piece include RSA Global Risk, Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty, Marsh and The Hartford.

ASBPE awarded an additional silver to associate editor Michelle Kerr for her piece, Machine Learning Could Make Hackers Practically Unstoppable: Are You Ready? Contributing to that piece were thought leaders from Hartford Steam Boiler, Starr Companies, Marsh, The Hartford and Coalition.

These regional awards from the ASBPE’s Middle Atlantic Chapter predate the announcements of national AZBEE awards, which will be announced in a few short weeks. &
