Long term care insurance advocate Deb Newman named to the “Hot 100 in Insurance” list by national industry publication


Richfield, MN (January 26, 2015) ‐‐  Insurance Business America (IBA) magazine just released their second annual “Hot 100 in Insurance” list.  To select the Hot 100, IBA pored through submissions and industry news items over the past year to track just who was making the noise and necessary changes to bring the insurance sector to where it is at the start of 2015. Including those who make a constructive difference, from politicians to producers, regulators to reinsurance executives, this list features notables such as the CEOs of Lloyd’s of London and AIG, Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear, DHS Director Sylvia Mathews Burwell (who replaced Kathleen Sebelius in 2014), and US Representative Maxine Waters. Deb Newman, founder and CEO of Richfield, Minnesota based Newman Long Term Care was one of the few Mid-westerners selected for the Hot 100 list.

Newman was recognized for her quarter‐century devoted “solely to long‐term care planning”. “Starting with just herself and one employee, Newman built Newman Long Term Care into one of the nation’s foremost LTCI only companies”. She was recognized for lending “her perspective to publications like USA Today, the Wall Street Journal and Money Magazine”. Insurance Business America also acknowledged her advocacy in speaking to industry and consumer groups and government panels in more than 40 states. See Newman’s feature in IBA here.

Newman commented, “In an industry long‐dominated by men, it’s great to see so many women contributing at the highest levels.”

“The Hot 100 represents the best of the best the insurance industry has to offer. These are true thought leaders and influencers in our industry,” said IBA senior journalist Caitlin Bronson. “This list is very much a ‘who’s‐who’ of power players and innovators in insurance.” See the full Hot 100 List here.
