Just as important in my opinion, is USHA’s company culture, where the Agent is truly valued and appreciated.”

Ben Cutler, CEO of USHEALTH Group, Inc. said “We are certainly excited that Brian and Travis have joined the USHA leadership team. They each bring a unique dimension of captive agency experience that will serve USHA well, as the company continues its rapid growth in the individual health insurance market.”

Clark also served as President of the Lead Marketing Group (LMG); HealthMarkets’ dedicated lead company, with responsibilities for supplying sales leads to the company’s representatives.
