                            My career began in 1993 at Dean Witter Reynolds.  After teaming up with my Father Bill Melby, we spent the next 20 years at Oppenheimer & Co., Inc. and Wells Fargo Advisors until I recently joined UBS Financial Services, Inc., in 2016.

                            Through my professional years there has been one goal that has remained constant, "to focus on each individual client's specific needs and customizing a plan that will best meet their personal goals and objectives".

                            I have always enjoyed building strong, trusting relationships with my clients and their families and looking out for their best interests has been my most important responsibility.

                            My wife Rose and I reside in Naperville, where we've enjoyed the challenges of raising our three beautiful daughters, Juliana, Alexandra and Gabriella.
