Tech-driven insurance brokerage Newfront has expanded its construction team with the appointment of Kyle Duke (pictured above) as construction loss control practice leader.

Duke will be joining a team including Adam Gabler, who has been recently promoted to regional construction leader, Southwest, and Bryan Martin, who has taken on the role of head of surety.

“When combined with our existing talent like Adam, Bryan, and others, along with Newfront's advanced technology, Kyle's unmatched knowledge in every aspect of the construction business has had an immediate impact on our results,” said Matt Summers, Newfront's construction practice leader.

Duke brings more than 25 years of experience in the industry to Newfront, having previously led loss-control teams focused on construction at Marsh and Willis. Throughout his career, Duke has been involved in every aspect of the construction life cycle, leveraging his background in legal matters, risk management, loss control, safety, and sales. He has also been associated with state and federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration legal proceedings and regulatory development.

“Newfront's unique value proposition of combining industry experts with top-tier technology was a no brainer for me," Duke said. “By using structured data, we can help our clients protect their businesses in even better ways.”

Duke is the latest addition to Newfront’s roster. In March, the broker appointed Jennifer Wilson as head of cyber. In October of last year, the company tapped Microsoft veteran Greg Kaplan as senior vice president for its retirement services team.
