Succeeding in the insurance business can be a crap shoot for many people. It’s often difficult to break through among the heavy competition and create a successful business that meets the needs of customers in a successful way.
One insurance specialist who has seemingly got it all figured out is Troy McQuagge. This highly successful insurance executive has helped transform the fate of multiple insurance companies and was recently awarded high honors by One Planet for his incredible successes.
Who Is Troy McQuagge?
Troy McQuagge is currently the president, CEO, and a member of the Board of Directors for USHEALTH Group. He joined this group in 2010 and in 2013 was elected to the Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer positions.
Later in 2014, he was promoted to the President and CEO of the company. From there, he has expanded his executive skills to serve with Freedom Life Insurance and other groups related to USHEALTH.
Mr. McQuagge started his career right out of university, graduating from the University of Central Florida in 1983. That same year, he joined Allstate Insurance Company and later took part in the Student Insurance Division of United Insurance Companies.
Every company he’s worked with during this time has succeeded handily, setting single-year sales records nearly every year and making over $1 billion in revenue.
His Recent Honors
After all his incredible success as an insurance and marketing executive and CEO, Mr. McQuagge was awarded the “Gold Winner” or CEO of the Year at the One Planet Awards. This group is the premiere program awarding excellent businessmen and women for their successes in the industry.
Businesses all around the world, from for-profit to non-profit, nominate people every year. Thousands of possible names are suggested, highlighting Mr. McQuagge’s incredible success in winning this award.
What particularly inspired One Planet when giving this award was his success with USHEALTH Group. While success before, he was able to turn the company into a hugely successful venture, well behind its initial success. They stated he had achieved “unprecedented success, growth, and profitability” during his tenure.
He had this to say on winning the award: “It’s an honor to be named by One Planet Awards to receive this esteemed industry and peer recognition. In reality, this award belongs to everyone at USHEALTH Group, Inc. It is a testament to our company’s ongoing commitment to solve the health care affordability problem for customers by providing them with innovative coverage that can grow as their healthcare needs grow”.
It is statements like that which highlight Mr. McQuagge’s continued sense of humility and his dedication to building a business, not his own reputation. Selflessness is an important part of successful leadership, and he has it in spades.
