Insurance Professionals Join USHEALTH Advisors Because Of Its Dedication To Local Communities

Randy Hildebrandt grew up idolizing baseball star Nolan Ryan. Like his hero, he wanted to be loved and respected for his skill and commitment to the game. Ryan was on track to do just that. He was the star pitcher of his High School baseball team. His performance on the mound was impressive, and he got a number of looks from the talent scouts that came through town. Unfortunately, Ryan would never live his dream. The physical strain of the game wore him down, and in his senior year he blew out his shoulder.

Although disappointed, Ryan was still determined to do something great with his life. He enrolled in Texas A&M and majored in business. He was not all that interested in business, but it was the field which seemed to produce a lot of successful people so he pursued it. View more USHealth Advisors Careers and Jobs at

His first job after completing his studies was in insurance sales. He did not warm to the position at first. It took the advice and encouragement of the person who recruited him and a few of the original mentors that he worked with before he finally reached his potential. The thing that most impacted his change of attitude was the realization that his assumptions about insurance sales were all wrong. His job was not to push policies on people; it was to help them protect themselves and their families against the consequences of accident, illness, and injury. Once he got that straight, he began to thrive.

Ryan joined the USHEALTH team in 2012. A number of people encouraged him to make the move, but it was a long and intimate chat with CEO Troy McQuagge that finally convinced him. Ryan could see that Troy was as passionate about helping people as he was. The young executive was also impressed by the achievements of Troy’s brainchild: the Helping Other People Everyday (HOPE) program.

The program is thoroughly integrated into the structure and operations of the company. Through the HOPE program, USHEALTH executive have dedicated hundreds of man-hours to rebuilding storm-ravaged areas of New Orleans. Company executives have also given thousands of dollars to local charities that help children who are homeless and who suffer from serious illnesses.

Like every other USHEALTH executive, Ryan knew that the program would allow him to dedicate a considerable amount of his time and talents to humanitarian work. More information can be found at
