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.

Fun Facts

I taught myself English by listening to books on tape. I may not speak Tagalog anymore but I understand my parents when they talk about me to relatives.

Unique, just like 70 million other people. A Myers-Briggs certified INFJ, I am among only 1% of the world's population.

I have three dogs. Wicket the shih-poo, Puddles the cavapoo, and a golden doodle Sperry.

I met my husband in a bar while dressed as Lara Croft. His female friend agreed to pose as his sister. The truth was revealed on our first date

Evelin was born in Mexico. She, her parents, and two siblings moved to the U.S. when she was only eight-years-old.

What we know about Evelin: Love & Career

Car troubles? Evelyn may be able to lead you in the right direction. She worked at Darcars Chrysler Jeep Dodge for seven years as a service advisor, so she's definitely got a little Yin to go with that Yang. From there, Evelin became a customer service rep for State Farm Insurance, where she remained for six years. Today, she's part of the EBS team and the resident go-to when we need a fluent Spanish speaker. Her proudest moment is when she recently became a mother. "I love my daughter so much!" she proclaims.

Emily Yeakle

Manager of Client Services, Small Group Renewals

Early Years

Born and raised in Baltimore, Emily went to Notre Dame Prep where she played field hockey and lacrosse. In fact, her love for the game had her planning on playing Division III college lacrosse. But who needs planning when you can follow your ever-changing heart? "At the very last minute, I decided to attend Virginia Tech and become a Hokie." (That's Hokie. Not hooky. Sheesh.) Good strategy, Em! At Virginia Tech, our star wore lots of orange, studied Public Relations and Marketing, and pledged Delta Gamma. (Hoki, Hoki, Hoki, Hy!)

What we know about Emily

Charmer in Charm City.

After graduating from Virginia Tech in 2013 (Sola-Rex, Sola-Rah!), Emily replanted her roots right back in her hometown. Once settled in Locust Point, she ensconced herself in Baltimore life, starting with her first career at an IT staffing industry. After 2 years, Emily left staffing to join a large healthcare company -- and after about a year, landed at EBS as an Account Manager. (Team! Team! Team!)

Fun Facts

Purple passion. I am obsessed with the Ravens and my sorority voted me most likely to marry Ray Lewis.

Pepto-Bismol please! I once won an award for being a human garbage disposal. I can out-eat most people, especially when it comes to Italian food.

Puppy love. I am obsessed with my golden retriever and all golden retrievers.
