DSO Executives Win Prestigious Management Award

The Stevie American Business Awards named the management team of Great Expressions Dental Centers as winners of two Stevie Awards for their leadership in the dental industry.  At the upcoming ceremony in New York, GEDC’s CEO Richard Beckman and COO Greg Nodland will be recognized with a Silver Stevie American Business Award for Management Team of the Year in Consumer Services Industries.  Richard Beckman will also receive a Bronze Stevie Award for Executive of the Year in Health Products & Services.

“We are grateful to the judges of the 2016 Stevie American Business Awards for the incredible honor of receiving two of these prestigious awards,” said Beckman. “This recognition represents the tireless work of so many individuals within our organization who have contributed to the growth of Great Expressions Dental Centers and continued emphasis on quality patient care.”

Under Beckman’s leadership, GEDC became profitable in 2000 and has seen both top and bottom line growth every year since 2000.  In the past year alone, the organization’s revenue has seen growth of 5.7 percent.  Great Expressions has grown it’s footprint in 10 states and continues expansion in Texas and most recently in Ohio.

When Beckman departed from his role as President of Credit Acceptance Corporation to lead GEDC in 1998, he brought Greg Nodland, Director of Finance at the time, with him.  Now COO of Great Expressions, Nodland is still using his finance background to focus his operations team on the bottom line.  Nodland and Beckman have overseen GEDC’s continuous growth over the past 18 years.

The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. More than 3,400 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.  More than 250 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.
