1999 – Leigh Steinberg

Leigh Steinberg is known as the “super agent” to the super sports stars. The basis of his representation of these professional sports stars is a one-on-one, personal relationship with clients. Leigh is the founding partner of the law firm Steinberg, Moorad, & Dunn, which maintains a client roster that has included more than 150 of the highest profile names in sports history. In October 1999, the Assante Corporation, a multi-billion dollar Canadian wealth management firm, purchased the Steinberg & Moorad firm. Leigh is now the Chairman and CEO of the Assante Sports Management group and Steinberg Moorad & Dunn.

The one-to-one relationships Steinberg’s firm fosters with their athlete clients isn’t just about helping make deals that offer long-term financial security. It’s also about assisting them to become upstanding members of their communities. Leigh firmly believes in the concept of professional athletes as role models, accepting only those clients willing to give back to the communities around them. From working with charities to establishing foundations and scholarships, the firm;s clients are some of the most widely recognized philanthropists in professional sports today, having donated over $60 million to various charities and scholarships nationwide.

Although representing his numerous clients is very time consuming, Steinberg also contributes his time and efforts to a variety of humanitarian causes. He is actively involved with the Human Relations Commission, Children Now, Children’s Miracle Network, CORO Fellow program, and the Starlight Foundation. He founded and underwrites the Steinberg Leadership Institute, a nationwide program run by the Anti-Defamation League, which prepares students to fight racism and inequality throughout the world. He has endowed scholarships at his high school, donated time and resources to organizations such as the Special Olympics, Juvenile Diabetes Foundation and Junior Achievement. He has also endowed a classroom at the University of California, Berkley. Through his “Concussion Seminars”, Steinberg has taken it upon himself to bring together the best in football and medicine to discuss strategies to make the game safer for all participants.

Rotary Club of Tulsa

When terror struck the heartland, just 90 minutes away, we all stood united as Oklahomans. One day after the Murrah Building bombing, the Rotary Club of Tulsa provided a $50,000 grant from the proceeds of that year’s Iba Awards, which was then duplicated by others in Tulsa. Within another day, $100,000 was provided to our colleagues at the OKC Downtown Rotary Club 29 to use wherever they saw the need was most urgent to help our fellow Oklahomans.

Over the years, particularly at our club’s Celebrate! Centennial Banquet in 2015, the OKC Club has recognized this gift as a welcome symbol of Rotary friendship at a time when their club and the entire city was shaken.
