Meet Eric Tausend, a Newfront Power Broker Finalist

As an attorney with years of experience representing insureds in coverage litigation with insurers, SVP, Senior Account Executive Eric Tausend brings a unique knowledge set to the table when working with clients as their broker at Newfront.

“Eric uses his customer-centered approach to proactively address and anticipate each of his clients’ needs in order to provide them with a clear analysis of the salient issues and his recommendation,” said Deirdre Finn, National Practice Leader, Executive Risk Solutions at Newfront.

Among other accomplishments, in 2021, Eric spearheaded a number of prominent IPO and deSPAC transactions (leveraging recent case law developments around the enforceability of choice-of-forum provisions to obtain below market terms), he deftly handled countless complicated renewal with the skill and enthusiasm he’s become known for, and he guided several clients successfully through high-profile acquisitions.

These impressive results, among many others from last year, garnered Eric a spot on the Power Brokers list by Risk & Insurance. Congratulations to Eric, along with Carolyn Locke, Dan Lindell, Matt Somma, Dulcey Lester, and Dana George, who were all named to the 2022 Power Brokers program.

What is a Power Broker?
