Home sweet home. After working for years in finance in Chicago, Hugh McGowan returned home in 1995. Upon arriving, joining the family business seemed like a natural fit. He made a seamless transition to Treasurer, Vice-President, and minority owner. In 1998, he was promoted to Sr. Vice President at McGowan Insurance Group.
Today, Hugh M. and his father, Hugh B., still work closely together. His primary functions are managing day-to-day operations and serving as the Agency’s Sales Manager. In the fall of 2010 Hugh became President and CEO of McGowan and is now majority owner.
Participating in many organizations, Hugh is a past board member of the Central Indiana Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter. He also served as the Independent Insurance Agents of Indiana (IIAI) Young Agents Committee Chairman and has been awarded the Young Agent of the Year Award. Currently he serves the IIAI Executive Committee as Secretary.
Keeping active in the community is top priority for Hugh. He is an active member of both the Junto of Indianapolis and the Penrod Society, past President of the Notre Dame Club of Indianapolis and currently serves on the Board of Families First.
Hugh graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a major in Finance. Hugh is married to Kate and has two children, Jack and Maggie.
