Gordon Wintrob, NEWFRONT INSURANCE

Co-founder and CTO

As the co-founder and chief technology officer of Newfront Insurance, Gordon Wintrob leads the development of the company’s platform and operating system. Over the past year, Wintrob has tripled the size of Newfront’s development team, including hiring tech veterans from companies like Roblox and Airbnb.

Wintrob’s father ran AIG’s life and retirement business and urged Wintrob to apply his technical skills to the insurance industry to improve the client and broker experience. Prior to Newfront, Wintrob founded StackLead, a company that built automated technology to research sales leads, which he sold to LinkedIn and is now LinkedIn’s jobs product, aggregating millions of postings across the web.

“Technology has significantly improved the customer experience in industries as diverse as transportation, retail and banking,” Wintrob says. “I’m excited to move the insurance industry forward on behalf of our clients and brokers.”
