In January 2017, the much-coveted Planet Awards declared USHEALTH Group’s Chief Executive Officer, Troy McQuagge, the Gold Winner in its CEO of the year category. The One Planet Awards program rewards and acknowledges professional excellence from different industries worldwide. All organizations are eligible to participate in the awards.
After joining USHEALTH in 2010, Troy set out to make a difference in the company. First, he had to re-strategize its distribution agency, USHEALTH Advisors, to make it profitable. It advises USHEALTH clients on the insurance products and services offered by USHEALTH Group, and how these products fit into their health care needs.
Re-building the agency turned out to be a stepping stone which led to McQuagge’s promotion to CEO in 2014. Other than the internal re-strategizing he put in place, the company also registered exponential profitability and growth. These results are very remarkable because the health insurance market is highly competitive.
Troy McQuagge’s Response
After receiving the prestigious award, McQuagge acknowledged that it was an honor to have received peer recognition for what he had managed to achieve. He, however, didn’t take all the credit. Instead, he dedicated the gold award to all the employees of USHEALTH Group, Inc. He further stated that the award was a testament to the company’s ongoing conviction towards solving the healthcare affordability challenge faced by customers and providing innovative health care solutions that will match their growing medical needs.
