Motus Insurance Services (“Motus”) is a insurance broker based in New York, NY. We were founded in 2017 to provide a new line of insurance products specifically designed around the needs of common interest development (condominium) owners. As a broker we are legally obligated to work in the consumer’s best interests rather than the insurance company’s best interest.
Founder and CEO
Dan Wallis founded Motus Insurance Services and is the co-inventor behind the Common Interest Development Unit-owners policy that finally allows condominium owners to access an earthquake product with underwriting precision and expanded coverage tailored to the unique exposures of each specific association. Daniel continues to work with Motus’ underwriting partners and insurance carriers to alter and improve our product offerings.
Dan Wallis has over 15 years of experience in the insurance industry and is a third generation insurance professional. Before starting Motus Insurance Services, Dan, was the Vice President of Wallis & Wallis Insurance Brokerage, a family run brokerage that specializes in the needs of homeowner associations. It was in that time that Dan realized there was a growing and desperate need for a sensible earthquake product for associations that could lower premiums while offering coverage tailored to the needs of each association.
Dan holds the two premier designations in the insurance industry, Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) and Commercial Lines Coverage Specialist (CLCS)
He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from Brown University.
