Risk All Stars Award
Risk & Insurance® strives to identify emerging risks and mitigation strategies, while covering the fascinating people who drive the industry forward. Our goal is to not only inform and help our readers succeed in their careers but also to inspire and motivate.
Risk & Insurance® All Stars embody this credo. They stand out from their peers by overcoming challenges through exceptional problem solving, creativity, perseverance and/or passion. By presenting their stories we strive to recognize outstanding accomplishments while also providing our readers with ideas, solutions and motivation to overcome similar challenges.

- Any other professional responsible for risk management or claims
What criteria are used to select winners?
Winning applicants are selected based on the compelling nature of their story and accomplishments. The central question is, “Does the applicant’s story inform and/or motivate others?” While a compelling story is most important, winners also exhibit success in any of the below:
- Problem Solving
Application and judging process
Applicants can apply directly or be nominated by a colleague, broker, insurer or service provider.
Risk & Insurance® editors review all the applicants and narrow the pool down to finalists based on the application. Each finalist is then contacted by a staff member to conduct an interview.
A summary of the interview along with an evaluation form is completed by the editor performing the interview. Once all interviews are complete, the judging team meets to review all the interviews and evaluations. Winners are then selected.
There is no limit on the number of winners. Each Risk & Insurance® All Star is chosen based on the compelling nature of their story.
Winners are first announced in the September 15th issue of Risk & Insurance®. The information is also posted on the Risk & Insurance® website, eNewsletter, web digital edition and App. A profile highlighting each Risk All Star’s story along with a head-shot is presented by industry category.
A few weeks after the winners are announced, each Risk & Insurance® All Star receives a box with a copy of the print issue, an award plaque and additional information.
