The new office features a larger facility to accommodate current and future growth; as well as state of the art technology to position the office for agile development and continued superior customer service.


The Louisiana team is led by Michael Horton, First Vice President: Production Manager. Horton joined USG in January 2003 as a Producer/Broker in the Troy, MI office.
