The One Planet Awards are known throughout the business world for recognizing some of the best talent across industries and highlighting their strengths and contributions to the business world. For 2016 one of their most distinguished honors went to Tory McQuagge of USHEALTH Group, whom they named CEO of the Year for 2016.The recognition comes at time when conversations about health insurance is dominating headlines, leaving consumers wanting to find a company they can trust. Such a thing is impossible without exceptional leadership, which the award intends to highlight.
McQuagge came to USHEALTH Group intent on changing the structure of USHEALTH Advisors, the company’s main distributor. It was in need of new direction to meet the changes of health insurance at the time, and McQuagge met the challenge. Under his leadership USHEALTH Advisors not only recovered, grew substantially and increased its profitability in a difficult time for the health insurance industry. Because of his successes McQuagge was elected President and CEO of USHEALTH Group in 2014, and in a little over two years in his new roles the company finds itself rising above competitors and adapting to the undulating restrictions they encounter in disparate states.
