About Acacia Insurance

Your source for personal and commercial insurance.

Formerly known as Ellis Insurance, Acacia Insurance is an independent risk management firm dedicated to providing extraordinary service and intelligent insurance to our clients.  Our agency provides strategically tailored business insurance solutions, personal insurance products, and financial planning by partnering with best of breed financial services companies.

The firm was formed in 1988 by Edward A. Ellis, one of the most successful senior account agents of the Allstate Insurance Company.  Ten years later his son Adam assumed the reins and transformed the agency into a regional player.  2007 saw another dramatic change as Dan Frankel, formerly a senior director at Fidelity Investments, joined the company and brought with him a new area of expertise.  Under Adam and Dan’s stewardship, and fueled by a carefully selected team with diverse skills, Edward’s one-man venture has since grown to become a boutique risk management firm including InsureMyWine.com, serving thousands of clients across New England, New York, and over a dozen other states.
