SportsBusiness Journal Names Peter Zern One of 40 Under 40

March 13, 2012

WASHINGTON, DC, March 13, 2012 — Street & Smith’s SportsBusiness Journal has named Covington & Burling LLP partner Peter Zern a recipient of its “Forty Under 40” award. The annual list honors the best and brightest executives in the sports business industry under the age of 40, and is described by the publication as the most coveted award in sports business.

Mr. Zern’s inclusion on the 2012 list marks his third time as an honoree, placing him in the “Forty Under 40 Hall of Fame,” which is reserved for those who have been honored as a “Forty Under 40” recipient three times.

At Covington, Mr. Zern represents many of the firm’s sports clients, including the Big East Conference, Major League Baseball, NASCAR, the National Basketball Association, the National Football League, the National Hockey League, and the U.S. Olympic Committee. Mr. Zern’s work includes representation of sports clients on a range of matters, including media, financings and M&A.

The “Forty Under 40” awards program was initiated in 1999 by SportsBusiness Journal and SportsBusiness Daily to identify and honor the most promising young executives in sports business. A committee of SportsBusiness Journal and SportsBusiness Daily editors and writers select the 40 executives from among hundreds of nominations received each year.

The gala dinner and award program honoring the 40 winners will be held on Thursday, March 22, 2012, following the IMG World Congress of Sports at the Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, California.
