President of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games Organising Committee, Carlos Arthur Nuzman, is one of the 20 most influent executives in the sports world, according to a list made by magazine SportBusiness International.

The winning leadership campaign for Rio de Janeiro to host the Olympic Games in 2016 was one of the main factors for choosing Carlos Arthur Nuzman. The successful organisation of the Rio 2007 Pan–American Games, and his presence on the list of the 25 most influent people in the Olympic world, created by the 'Around the Rings' website, were also brought up by SportBusiness.
