Newfront, the tech-driven insurance brokerage based in San Francisco, welcomes Matt Yoder to its esteemed Executive Risk Solutions team as Midwest Leader. Yoder, named a Power Broker by Risk & Insurance, joins from Marsh.

“Matt is an accomplished leader with a stellar reputation in developing comprehensive programs and solutions for clients in the management-liability space,” said Deirdre Finn, Practice Leader of the Executive Risk Solutions (ERS) team at Newfront, a top-40 brokerage by revenue. “His guidance in overseeing our Midwest growth will greatly benefit from his rich background on the carrier and brokerage side of the business across multiple sectors.”
