Alexandra Chelton Joins Newfront as Construction Project Risk Leader

San Francisco – April 2, 2024 — Newfront, the tech-driven insurance brokerage firm based in San Francisco, announced that it has hired Alexandra Chelton as Project Risk Leader for the company’s National Construction Practice.

Chelton brings nearly fifteen years of industry experience. She joins from Willis Towers Watson where she most recently served as a Director on their National Construction team, leading the design, placement, and successful delivery of OCIPs/CCIPs, Project Specific, and construction casualty programs for clients across the US. Chelton has also held senior roles as a construction underwriter with expertise in both practice and project casualty risks.

“Alexandra’s career-long dedication to the construction space will bring invaluable insights to our growing team of experts,” said Matt Summers, Newfront Construction Practice Leader. “Her exceptional focus on her clients will build upon Newfront’s mission to bring a vertically integrated, tech-enabled construction practice to contractors, owners, and developers across the U.S.”

Newfront has invested heavily in its Construction Practice, which has grown in headcount by 73% in the last year alone. Alongside Jaclyn Johnson, who joined Newfront last year, Chelton brings much-needed diversity to the industry practice.

“The construction space sees new risks on a near daily basis, requiring solid expertise and experience managing those risks,” said Chelton. “I’m proud to join this team and excited to apply Newfront’s cutting-edge and tech-forward approach to the important work we do.”
