TUSK Continues to Expand its M&A Advisory Focus
Charlotte, NC: Today TUSK announced it is adding significant depth to an already strong and talented team with the addition of Josh Swearingen. Josh will join TUSK as Director of Mergers & Acquisitions and expand the company’s reach in dental Sell-Side Advisory services.
“Josh is a perfect fit for our team on every level. His depth of experience, talent, drive, and overall business acumen will serve as a tremendous asset to our company,” said Kevin Cumbus, President of TUSK Partners. “I have had the good fortune of knowing Josh since his days at Henry Schein back in 2018. He is such a smart and high-energy guy – I liked him right from the start. Since that time, he has served as the CEO of 2 distinct DSOs and played a major role in the growth of American Dental Partners as a Director of Corporate Development. Josh brings M&A deal experience along with a true understanding of what it takes to run and grow a DSO. I know that Josh will have an immediate impact on TUSK and help our clients achieve tremendous financial outcomes as a reward for the transition of the businesses they have all worked so hard to build. I could not be happier to welcome Josh to our team.”
Josh Swearingen added, "I’m beyond excited to be joining TUSK, a firm, and a team that is unparalleled in its respective space. Their commitment to partnership with their clients has yielded a scenario that provides optimal outcomes financially while assuring that the dentists' quality of life post-transition is exactly what they are hoping for. It isn’t often that a business can materially impact a dentist’s plans in such a manner, and TUSK has done a remarkable job creating that opportunity in the dental market. I’m elated to bring my experience working with both national and local DSOs to the team to help aid in our efforts as a group.”
Be on the lookout for Josh at industry trade shows, on webinars, and on podcasts in the weeks to come.
