In 1982, Troy McQuagge graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Legal Studies. This accomplishment would take him many different places in his life. Yet he always seemed interested in insurance sales, starting out he worked for Allstate Insurance. Working for them for several years allowed McQuagge to become knowledgeable in his industry. He moved to UICI/Health market twenty-two years later. While at UICI/Health he broke many records, setting the standard high for himself. Eventually he moved over to USHEALTH Corporation where he became the President. With a passion for people, the sales industry was a natural place for Troy McQuagge.
When he joined the company, McQuagge focused on the company’s captive distribution agency. His focus and success of the project made him a shoe-in for the Chief Executive Officer position only four short years after his hiring. He made a promise at the start of his position that he would continue his record breaking sales and work hard to communicate with the board, thus creating a company that is sustainable in many different aspects, including social responsibility. Since he took office, the company has seen unprecedented growth for the individual health insurance market. USHEALTH focuses on taking care of the self-employed and small business industry.
Proof that he has done such a great job comes from winning multiple awards. A few of these include the 2017 Gold Award for National Sales Team of the year, 2016 Most Innovative CEO of the Year, and 2015 Fastest Growing Company of the Year. One of the most recent one is CEO of the Year by the prestigious One Award. This award honors both businesses and professionals from around the world, and eligibility can come from any industry- large to small. Given McQuagge’s track record it is not a wonder that he won this award and I am sure USHEALTH corporation looks forward to him winning many more.
