McKeel Hagerty is the CEO of Hagerty. He began playing with cars as a boy and hasn’t stopped since, turning his parent’s small local insurance agency into the world’s largest membership organization for people who love collecting cars, driving cars, reading about cars, and watching cool videos about cars.
His “grow yourself first” approach to life and leadership has been so successful in the traditionally hide-bound insurance industry that he took his thinking to his peers in YPO, the world’s largest peer-to-peer group for CEOs. He served as international chairman of YPO in 2016-2017, where he traveled the globe talking to world leaders and business innovators about leadership and success. He’ll share his thoughts on these subjects in his first book, “Boundless,” due out next spring.
