Leading the charge for change

Newfront is dedicated to driving change in the insurance industry by challenging traditional ways of working and embracing diversity, equity, and inclusion in all that we do. 

A culture of change

Newfront creates a culture that embraces and accepts all walks of life. We strive to create opportunities that support our employees, clients, partners, and community. We lead with action and are a voice for underrepresented communities. At Newfront, we will always operate through a DE&I Lens.
