Boston, Mass. – January 30, 2017 – Motus the premier vehicle management and reimbursement platform, today announced the addition of Danielle Lackey as General Counsel. In addition to being responsible for all company legal affairs, Danielle will serve as executive sponsor of initiatives that bolster IRS and legal compliance for Motus clients.

Now more than ever, employers are under pressure to ensure that their vehicle programs comply with federal and state labor standards and that employees are fairly and accurately reimbursed.

Prior to joining Motus, Danielle co-founded and served as CEO of Cadence Counsel, a legal services company that helps law firms and companies thrive in an environment where work as we know it is rapidly changing.

Prior to law school, Danielle was a member of Los Angeles Mayor James K. Hahn’s staff, responsible for developing policies and aligning incentives amongst the city’s stakeholders.

“I have known Danielle and have observed the progression of her career for many years now. We’re thrilled to have such a passionate, capable and smart person join the Motus Leadership Team,” said Powell. “We are looking forward to supporting her efforts to educate the market about labor and IRS trends that impact employers’ mileage programs.”
