Our History 

Willis and Moore Inc. has been doing business in the Des Moines and surrounding areas since 1923. The agency was founded by Don Willis, Sr. and Tom Moore, Sr. and later in 1949 their sons, Don Willis Jr. and Tom Moore Jr. both joined the company eventually taking over the ownership. In 1971 Tom Moore Jr. sold his interest in the company to Harris Coggeshall, and Don Willis Jr. continued running the business with Harris. In 1985 Don’s son Joe Willis purchased Harris Coggeshall’s interest in the agency and in 1993 he purchased the balance of the agency from his father, Don Willis.

Today Joe Willis, surrounded by a great team, continues to run the company as an independent agency, representing many nationally recognized companies. This allows us to find the best company for your insurance needs. Here at Willis and Moore, we believe that everyone is an individual and not just a number. We provide excellent customer service to our clients.
