This past January, the most sought-after award was presented to the CEO of USHEALTH Group, Inc., Troy McQuagge. He was named the Gold Winner as CEO of the Year by One Planet Awards.℠ This award is not easy to obtain, as it chooses only one individual per industry out of the whole world to honor; each person is nominated by companies all over the globe, large and small alike, for the nominees’ displaying distinction and top-notch business performance.
When McQuagge took on the task of transforming the USHEALTH Group in 2010, he started by revamping the agency responsible for product-delivery, USHEALTH Advisors. He effectively equipped advisers to be more effective, efficient, and productive than ever before, which raised company profit to unparalleled levels amidst the competitive marketplace of individual health insurance. Soon after in 2014, Mr. McQuagge’s position in the company was elevated to President and CEO.
After receiving above-mentioned award, McQuagge remarked that the honor belonged not only to him, but to every person at USHEALTH Group, and was indicative of the company’s dedication to fixing unaffordable health coverage. He indicated that now customers could have health insurance that grows along with their needs, rather than needs stifling their benefits.
Troy McQuagge has more than 30 years of experience in sales under his belt, and continues to work for USHEALTH. His company spends countless hours and large sums of money doing charity work with the help of his employees. Together they have rebuilt homes affected Hurricane Katrina, donated shoes, baby formula, and clothes to The Crisis Nursery, a non-profit children’s home, gave a total of $70,000 to HOPEKids, a non-profit organization that provides for kids fighting cancer, and donated over $100,000 to the Semper Fi Fund which remodels and rebuilds homes to donate, mortgage-free, to veterans and their families.
Troy McQuagge has always had an entrepreneurial spirit permeates his career as a corporate executive. Although he presently makes his home in Coppell, Texas, he is originally from Panama City, Florida where he obtained a B.A. degree from the University of Central Florida in 1983. His first job after college was with Allstate, and by 1995, he joined United Insurance Companies where he earned the title of president in 1997. From there, the rest is history!
