How Troy McQuagge’s HOPE Program Has Helped The Community

Troy McQuagge has been president and CEO of USHEALTH Group since 2010, and has not only turned the company around financially, but has made the company a beacon of hope for the community. Beginning in 2010, McQuagge’s first year in running the company, he started the HOPE program. HOPE, short for Helping Other People Everyday, is the community service division of USHEALTH Group. McQuagge’s vision for this division was to give back to the Fort Worth community, and while he still wants to do more, he’s made great strides already in improving his company’s community.

The work McQuagge has done through HOPE is nothing short of outstanding and has helped many people in his community. His program has provided shelter and relief to the victims of natural disasters, as well as to the homeless members of his community. In addition, he has provided assistance to patients suffering from life threatening diseases.

While this philanthropy was good for his community, it was good for USHEALTH Group as well. Proving that an altruistic approach can be more profitable than a completely practical one, the stock price of USHEALTH Group has risen over 1200% since Troy McQuagge Son took over in 2010.

Fortunately, McQuagge’s philanthropy and stellar leadership has not gone unnoticed. In 2016, he was awarded the CEO of The Year Award at the CEO World Awards in the insurance category. At the same award show he was awarded Most Innovative CEO in the insurance category as well. These awards are evidence that the phenomenal work he’s doing in the insurance industry is unparalleled and makes him a trailblazer in his field.

Despite already achieving significant success with the HOPE program and turning his company around, Troy McQuagge isn’t done yet. He hopes to continue expanding the HOPE program and helping his community prosper. Read:

Troy McQuagge’s Mission of Hope

Troy McQuagge was born and raised in Panama City, Florida. He obtained his Bachelors degree at the University of Central Florida in 1983, securing a job with Allstate Insurance Company not long, thereafter. After a little over ten years of a successful working relationship with the company, he went on to join the student department of United Insurance Companies (UICI). In just two years, he was named the president of the United Insurance Company’s Agency, UGA. Troy well exceeded all of his bosses expectations by setting several single-year sales records.

Troy continued his ventures with UICI, which was eventually purchased by a private company, until he joined the USHEALTH Group, Inc., and was elected as the company’s Executive Vice President and Chieft Marketing Officer. In just a year later, he was promoted to President and Chief Executive Officer of the company. In the years that Troy McQuagge has worked for USHEALTH, the company has grown ten times larger in all aspects of the operation.

One of Troy’s most prized accomplishments would be an initiative he started in 2010 within USHEALTH called HOPE, which is a clever acronym for Helping Other People Everyday. HOPE is an organization that lives by being centered around helping everyday people that may be in need. One of their very first projects was partnering with Phoenix of New Orleans (PNOLA) organization to help as an aid in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Together, they donated supplies, resources, and volunteered hundreds of man hours to help rebuild homes and the lives of the hardest hit communities in the city. They ensured that residents of the lower-mid city areas were provided with safe and sound housing.

HOPE has also teamed up with The Crisis Nursery, which is a non-profit organization that shelters children in the Phoenix/Scottsdale metropolitan area, to provide thousands of dollars in shoes, clothing, formula, and supplies to children in need. The leaders behind the HOPE initiative has made it their purpose to give back to those cites that host their annual Leaders Meetings. Read more about Troy McQuagge US Health at Slideshare

HOPE has gone on to make many other contributions to all sorts of organizations. For instance, in 2012, when the Leadership meeting returned back to Phoenix, hope presented a check for more than $25,000 to HOPEKids Arizona. After they found out that HOPEKids had opened up a chapter near it’s Texas headquarters a year later, they donated another $45,000, and then some. In 2015, USHA made one of the largest donations, $100,000, in less than 20 minutes to the Semper FI and America’s Fund, which is geared towards providing immediate financial aid towards wounded 9/11 veterans to ensure that they have the resources that they need to transition back into everyday life.
