Spike Lipkin, NEWFRONT INSURANCE
Co-founder and CEO
Spike Lipkin built Newfront Insurance with a mission of setting a new standard for the retail insurance industry. Using advanced technology and expert service, Newfront aims to offer a fundamentally different experience for its commercial and private clients, as well as a new level of control for producers. Lipkin oversees Newfront’s more than 150 employees and 60 producers and works with them to continue transforming the industry.
Prior to Newfront, Lipkin was an early employee at Opendoor. com, which he helped grow into a business currently valued at over $3 billion. Before that, he was an investor at Blackstone and part of the startup team that built Invitation Homes into the largest owner of single-family real estate in the US. At both companies, Lipkin experienced firsthand the challenges in the insurance-buying process, inspiring him to build a modern insurance brokerage designed to improve the client experience.
