USHEALTH Group CEO Troy McQuagge Announced As Gold Winner At 2016 One Planet Business and Professional Excellence Awards
The 2016 One Planet Business and Professional Excellence Awards, the international awards program that recognizes excellence within every professional industry, has announced USHEALTH Group CEO Troy McQuagge as the Gold Winner.
McQuagge has been with USHEALTH Group since 2010 and has brought remarkable success to the company which provides unique healthcare plans for small business owners and people who are self-employed. The insurance company, which operates in Ft. Worth, Texas, focuses on solutions for affordable health coverage for these individuals and has a reputation for developing innovative strategies and healthcare products in addition to providing excellent customer service.
Troy McQuagge earned his position at USHEALTH Group by building his expertise in the health insurance industry since 1983. With a B.A. in Legal Studies from the University of Central Florida, he started out at the Allstate Insurance Company and later joined UICI in 1995 where he expanded the company tremendously.
When McQuagge joined USHEALTH Group in 2010, he had the difficult responsibility of completely retooling the company. His quick success earned him the title of Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Advisor in 2013, and then CEO and President in 2014.
Since joining USHEALTH Advisors, McQuagge has managed to create company initiatives that have led to a sales growth of 500% in the six years he has been with the company. Under his guidance, the company has broken numerous sales records.
In an industry as competitive as health insurance, McQuagge’s work at USHEALTH Group stands out against the work of his peers. Today the company earns $1 billion annually, making the company ten times as profitable as it was when he joined in 2010.
Upon winning, McQuagge expressed, “In reality, this award belongs to everyone at USHEALTH Group, Inc. It is a testament to our company’s ongoing commitment to solve the healthcare affordability problem for customers by providing them with innovative coverage that can grow as their healthcare needs grow.”
Needless to say, McQuagge considers the award to be a great honor and he is proud of his work. The awards program is based on peer recognition and includes businesses and non-profit organizations worldwide. Any person or organization is eligible for a nomination.
