EBS Insurance Brokers Overview

EBS Insurance Brokers, Inc. was formed by Managing Partner, Paul Rooney, on January 21, 1997, as a full-service employee benefits brokerage and consulting firm. EBS’ mission is to identify the most competitive employee benefit and retirement programs that are as unique as our client’s populations and align with their core values. We provide thoughtful, strategic insights and innovative solutions, consistently delivering exceptional services with a collaborative approach.


Paul and EBS played an integral role in forming United Benefit Advisors (UBA) in 2002 – a national association of the top independent employee benefits advisory firms in the country in an alliance to remain independent while providing our clients with resources on a national scale. All UBA member firms are leaders in their geographic region, with strict qualifications in size of clients, number of employees, and revenue. Since its inception in 2002, UBA has become the second largest employee benefits advisor organizations in the country. The 140 UBA member firms pool their resources to both share product and marketplace knowledge, provide key trend data and analysis, jointly research and purchase technology and benefit-related services, and support a united, national workforce. Our partnership with UBA provides our clients with deep industry insights, cutting-edge technology, tools, and strategies, collective vendor discounts, and boots on the ground support across all 50 states.


Today EBS boasts over 240 years of combined experience in benefits, compliance, legal, wellness, technology, and human resources. Paul is supported by four Senior Partners – Ingrid Melvin, Tom McCormick, Josie Martinez, and Joe Moran. The majority of our team is located at One Gateway Center, Suite 650 in Newton, MA and we have a second office in Springfield, MA. We rank in the top 10 largest firms in Massachusetts. EBS is a Subchapter S corporation and has been debt free for the entire life of the firm.


EBS is currently on the broker council for three local health plans (BCBS, Harvard Pilgrim, & Allways). EBS has also been awarded ‘The Best places To Work’ by Boston Business Journal in 2013, 2014 and 2015 & 2020. In addition, we have been honored with ‘The Largest Employee Benefits Firm’ in March 2015, ‘Outstanding Client Service’ by LPL Financial in 2014, ‘United Advantage’ by United Healthcare in 2012 and ‘High Performance & Contributor’ by Harvard Pilgrim Health Care in 2002.
