Troy McQuagge Recognized For More Excellence By The One Planet Awards Committee

Being named President and CEO to one of the largest and most trusted insurance groups in the United States is an amazing accomplishment unto itself. Yet Troy McQuagge not only earned this pinnacle in just four years and helped the company increase its sales volume by 5 times, he has also now been honored with one of the most prestigious business awards in the world. Troy McQuagge has earned the One Planet award as CEO of the Year for 2016. The One Planet Awards are yearly awards honoring the best in business and professional excellence around the world in categories that include executives, marketing, public relations, teams and new products and services. Eligible organizations can be public or private, profit or non-profit and large or small businesses and start-ups.

While Troy McQuagge’s wisdom and humility preclude him from accepting sole credit for this achievement, it’s a worthy leader that brings out the best in others and allows for the chance that everyone may succeed. The USHealth Group commitment to provide the best and most affordable healthcare coverage for it’s customers is not achieved if that commitment to excellence isn’t first prevalent from the top.

Troy McQuagge is a dedicated professional of the healthcare industry with more than thirty years of experience helping sales and sales teams to grow. He began his career in 1983 after graduating from the University of Central Florida and going to work for the Allstate Insurance Company. In 1995 he entered the Student Insurance Division of United Insurance Company Inc. (UICI). By 1997 he had been named as President and CEO UICI’s insurance branch, UGA, and helped lead the group to a number of single year sales records.

Later in 2006, a group of private equity investors acquired UICI and changed it’s name to HealthMarkets. Troy led the self-employed sales and marketing teams and the following year the HealthMarkets’ Agency Marketing Group (AMG) achieved in excess of $1 billion in sales volume. Troy McQuagge’s led marketing group was even awarded by Selling Power Magazine and the Stevie Awards as the Insurance Sales Organization of the Year.

Troy joined with USHealth in 2010 as President and CEO of USHealth Advisors LLC. and was elected as Executive Vice President and CMO of USHealth Group, Inc. in October of 2013.
