Matt Harris is the founder and president of Coreprime, a Las Vegas commercial insurance brokerage firm.
Q: What are you reading?
A: “Red Notice” by Bill Browder. The book takes a very interesting account of the largest foreign investor in Russia being targeted by Vladimir Putin and Russian officials.
Q: What is your favorite restaurant?
A: EDO Tapas on Jones Boulevard and Desert Inn Road. It offers limited seating in a pretty small room, but don’t let that fool you. The food is outstanding, I’m always trying new things, and the atmosphere is intimate yet upbeat.
Q: Where do you workout, or play your favorite sport?
A: I workout in my garage gym at home. During the pandemic, the home gym has made it so much easier to manage my time with work and family and decompress after a long day.
Q: How do you decompress after a hard week?
A: Going to dinner with my wife and spending time with my kids. My wife and I have four little girls and our weekends are usually packed with sports and activities. They keep me on my toes and are a fun distraction from those hard work days.
Q: What is the biggest challenge facing Las Vegas in the next five years?
A: I think education is Las Vegas’ biggest challenge in the coming years. To attract companies and new residents, we need a more dynamic education system at every level. Being a Nevada native myself and also having children, this issue is of primary importance to me.
