Blackburn ’89 Featured in Rochester Business Journal

David Blackburn, head of the upstate New York operations of Marsh USA Inc, and a member of the Hobart Class of 1989, was in Marsh's headquarters in midtown Manhattan during the Sept. 11 attacks. Each year on the anniversary of the attacks, Blackburn has pedaled a bicycle from Ground Zero in Manhattan to the Capitol in Washington, D.C., sponsored by World T.E.A.M. Sports, a North Carolina organization that runs events designed to bring people together in sporting activities. Marsh lost 295 employees in the attacks. Blackburn was featured in the Rochester Business Journal Nov. 21, in an article titled “A deep understanding of risk in a new era.”
