Adam Ellis


A philosophy major as an insurance agency owner seems, at best, incongruous.  While Kant and Hegel haven’t proved too useful in Adam’s insurance career, the passion for logic that he discovered at Gettysburg College has benefitted his ability to diagnose, and solve, issues in his clients’ complex insurance portfolios.

Adam loves a challenge and brings the same passion to helping clients as he did when winning the Boston Marathon (1995, Quad division in a time of 2:02:57) and a national championship with his wheelchair rugby team.  Speaking of passion, Adam has a minor obsession with photography (you might find a photo or two of his lurking around our website) and frequently uses it as an excuse to travel with his daughter, Sophie.

Over his 20+ years in the insurance industry, Adam has helped grow the agency from a small personal lines shop to a regional boutique brokerage with a focus on high-net-worth personal lines and middle-market commercial clients.  Adam is proud of the team we’ve assembled here at Acacia Insurance, and loves how they truly embody our core belief:  make the unexpected uneventful.
