Cincinnati, OH April 8, 2022 – Kevin Aston, one of the industry’s leading insurance experts, has joined Hylant as the Cincinnati market president, bringing his vast skill set to company growth, team development and community engagement, the company announced Friday.
Formerly serving as president of business insurance and private client services for Marsh McLennan Agency, Aston will bring more than 20 years of experience and formidable leadership skills to his role. His comprehensive insurance knowledge will create a strategic direction to drive the Ohio region’s revenue growth while meeting the ever-increasing insurance needs of Hylant clients.
“Over the years, Hylant has impressed me with its dedication to clients, constantly investing in talent and resources to meet the evolving needs of those clients,” said Aston. “I am thrilled to now be a part of their mission and help drive those endeavors.”

“Bringing Kevin onto the Hylant team is one of the best decisions we can make for Hylant’s future,” said Chris Godley, Northeast regional CEO of Hylant. “His vast knowledge and extensive expertise will be crucial to not only Hylant’s daily running but our strategic initiatives.”
Aston has received considerable recognition for his leadership and insurance expertise.

“As we continue to beat our growth expectations, Kevin’s addition will solidify our world-class team,” said Godley.
