Jordan Sganga

Client Manager

The Early Years: Cosmopolitan Kiddo

Jordan earned her love of traveling in childhood. A Navy Brat and eldest of five children (one brother and three step-siblings), she was born in California and has lived in - count 'em - six states. She began her high school career in sunny Orlando but completed it in Maryland. Apparently, she pitched herself as an excellent softball player, earning a scholarship to attend UMBC where she majored in Psychology and minored in Sociology. Analysis tells us it was a great start to a people-oriented career!  

What we know about Jordan:  The Odyssey continues

2016 saw Jordan graduate and begin her career in IT staffing. She joined EBS in 2017. Never one to sit still for long, her free time is spent huffing and puffing - working out, playing softball and football, and even bowling in a league with her dad, granddad, and boyfriend. Still, what is life without a little twang? Jordan spends her passive energy soaking in the music that speaks to her most - Country! And there's always an occasion to play a little Eminem and "anything with a beat I can nod to."

True to her gypsy roots, she has visited 21 states to date and her lifetime goal is to experience all 50.

Scott Melson

Client Advisor

Early years

Give him an "O!" Give him an "R"! Give him an "I"! Oh heck, let's just say Scott loved going to Orioles games as a kid. Like, practically since birth. He is also the son of a marathon runner, so he had plenty of opportunities to get his Forrest Gump on as a kid. His sporty days continued while attending Damascus High School, including playing baseball and football. To this day, he still loves fitting a long distance run or backpack adventure with friends in when he can.

What we know about Scott

Scott's pretty good at performing "marathon workdays", too. We can attest to that. "I love my job and how it gives me the opportunity to meet new people and help put businesses in a better place," he affirms. With four children under the age of 7, he stays busy at home, too! "Life is insane," he confirms, "And I love it. I'm also an Elder at Shady Grove Presbyterian Church and love to work with people in the congregation."

Fun Facts

Kicking It: I am a "bloody" huge Arsenal Football Club fan.  

The Good Life: Scotch, a Cigar, and a fire pit. Makes a night good.  

Jump Start:  As a freshman, I joined friends who noticed kids jumping off a bridge in a town that a friend just moved to. A few bloody noses later after jumping off the top, the other kids told us (with wide eyes) they only ever jumped off of the support beams, 40 feet below us!

Ryan Sullivan

Managing Partner

Early Years

Ryan gives new meaning to the title Water Boy. He grew up on Cape Cod where he graduated from Falmouth High School and later, the University of Massachusetts. As a coastal townie, Ryan spent much of his life on the water, boating, fishing, and simply enjoying the peacefulness of the open water. Today, you'll find him chasing around four rambunctious boys - typically on the boat - and still trying to convince his beautiful wife she picked a winner.

What We Know about Ryan:

Charting new courses comes with the territory.

Ryan began his insurance career at as a sales representative for Unum, where he learned the importance of employer sponsored benefits and the impact they have on recruiting and retaining quality employees. The experience formed in him a deep understanding of how underwriters view risk-and how to negotiate a favorable outcome for the client. In 2004, Ryan took this experience to the retail side of the business and started calling on clients directly. Since then, he has consulted with hundreds of clients and built a foundation of success that he shares with his two business partners as they continue to grow presence of EBS in the marketplace.

Fun Facts

Sinking Feeling. In High School, an innocent boat ride to a remote island party turned into the sinking of the Sullivan family sailboat. Sorry Mom.

I've never "Paaahked my caaaah in Haaaahvid Yaaaahd." Even though I grew up in Boston.

I deflated Tom Brady's footballs. And I take full responsibility for it.

Kelli Argo

Client Care Manager

Early Years:

Born in Maryland, Kelli is the oldest of three sisters. Always one to stay active, this kid sashayed her way into dance class at age five and kept dancing for 10 years! Kelli also played high school softball and, later, actively sought out adventure by studying abroad in Spain for three wonderful months while a student at the University of Delaware.

What we know about Kelli

After college, Kelli embarked on a career as a reporter for a weekly paper in Dover, Delaware. It took her just three years to realize the small salary wasn't going to cut it forever. After bartending to pay off debts, she ditched the booze and became dazzled by the world of insurance. "For seven years, I worked for State Farm and, as cheesy as it sounds, I really became that good neighbor my clients could count on."

After working as a benefits advisor and training specialist for KELLY, she joined EBS in early 2017. "For the first time ever, I feel like I've found my forever work home. I look forward to servicing our clients and helping our team grow the business for years to come." Aw, shucks. We feel the same way!

Fun Facts

Good Fake! One night, I asked this guy Eric to be my pretend boyfriend to keep a creepy older gentleman from hitting on me at a bar. It became pretty obvious he wasn't actually my boyfriend when we later exchanged numbers! No matter. The pretend boyfriend is now my husband!

Ok . . . Another Good Fake! I have a tiny tattoo on my foot, but my decision to get one was far from spontaneous. I wore a fake tattoo for a week to make sure I liked it first.

Getting Real. I am obsessed with being a mom. I never knew I could love a person so much. Madison "Maddie" has my heart! Eric - don't be jealous!

Just No. I am far from a picky eater but strongly dislike peas. They are gross.
