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.
