Tech-enabled insurance brokerage Newfront has announced the appointment of Tim Hunt (pictured above) as associate vice president on its employee benefits team.

Hunt joins Newfront from Marsh McLennan Agency, where he helped clients improve and manage their employee benefits programs.

“Tim brings additional background as a small business owner, and therefore has a deep understanding of the challenges that arise in the benefits space around retaining and attracting great talent,” said Brian Hetherington, president of Newfront. “His passion for discovering innovative solutions for businesses of all sizes and industries will help enhance our world-class employee benefits team even further.”

Hunt is based in the San Diego area and will serve clients across the country.

“Tim has found innovative ways to go to market and drive value for clients, especially during the pandemic,” said Linde Hitchkiss, Newfront regional managing director for the Southwest market. “He is a great addition to the team, and our resources will amplify his ability to create a better client experience.”

“I’m thrilled to embark on my new journey with Newfront,” Hunt said. “The entire team at Newfront is focused on providing the best customer service experience for our clients by putting them front and center of all we do. Furthermore, Newfront has the culture and values that align with my personal vision.”

Newfront’s employee benefits team recently announced an exclusive partnership with Alpine Reward to provide strategic total rewards advice for the world’s top employers.

“The data, technology and resources offered to our clients is cutting edge and makes the whole process of benefit administration much easier for the client,” Hunt said.
