When you are the Gold Winner for the CEO of the year from One Planet Awards, you know you’re doing something right. And that’s exactly what Troy McGuagge did. He was awarded the honor from One Planet Awards, which is a prestigious organization that recognizes outstanding performance for people in business.
According to Crunchbase, McGuagge was given the award due to the impressive turnaround he engineered at USHEALTH. The group is a holding company out of Texas. Their aim is provide health insurance services to small business owners and entrepreneurs and be profitable while doing it.
They also try to provide high levels of customer service. However, despite their mission, they were struggling to achieve it.
This all changed when Troy McQuagge came on board in 2010. He was able to take the suffering USHEALTH Advisors division and make it wildly profitable and successful. In 2014, he was appointed the CEO and President of the company thanks to his previous contributions. This is quite a feat in such a competitive industry such as health insurance.
McQuagge is from Panama City, Florida initially. There, he started being active in business from a young age. He has always had the mindset of an executive and entrepreneur. He received his education at the University of Central Florida.
After leaving college, Troy went into the insurance industry. This is where he started to work for Allstate in 1983, then later for UICI in 1995. His ability to stick with companies for a long time shows his loyalty and ability to commit. Now, with over 30 years of experience in insurance sales positions, he is leading USHEALTH to a new era of success and optimism.
