John Haagensen

President and Co-Founder

John is the President and Co-Founder of MHG Insurance Brokers. In this role, he works with the CEO and senior management to position MHG as the leader in crew insurance.

John, a former mariner, created MHG with Andrew Dudzinski based on the principal that marine employers and employees should enjoy access to the same types of insurance and benefit programs that are available to those based on land. “When I was at sea we had very little by way of benefits, so when I met Andrew I realized that together we could help make a life at sea better and more secure for everyone. Why shouldn’t seafarers have the same benefits as those working shoreside?”

MHG has enjoyed continuous growth and is now offering insurance solutions to fit multiple industries including life and health, travel, expatriate, and more. John attributes the organization's reputation to unrivaled customer service.
