BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

San Francisco-based brokerage Newfront Insurance on Thursday named former Marsh central zone leader John Newell as chief commercial officer.

Newfront was founded as an insurtech in 2017 and merged with established brokerage ABD Financial Services Inc. in 2021. It is the 40th largest brokerage of U.S. business, according to Business Insurance’s most recent ranking.

Last month, Newfront hired Tyler McAllister, a former Marsh senior vice president, as its Greater Philadelphia market leader.
