Joseph A. Nagle, president and CEO of Altus Dental Insurance Company, will retire as of July 1, 2019, after 18 years of successfully leading the company from a start-up initiative to a world-class dental benefits company. Altus Dental provides affordable, quality dental plans to employers and membership associations across Massachusetts, and has grown its client roster to more than 2,000 groups.
"I am privileged to have watched this company grow from an idea to a resounding success," Nagle said. "With nearly 10,000 participating dental locations in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire, the Altus name has come to symbolize access, flexibility and convenience for the groups and members that we serve."
Joseph R. Perroni, Chief Sales Officer for Altus Dental Insurance Company, will succeed Nagle as CEO. Perroni has also been with Altus Dental since the company's launch.
"We are fortunate to have such a seasoned and forward-thinking executive take the helm of Altus Dental," Nagle said. "I am confident that Joe Perroni's talent, experience and proven track record of delivering results will help Altus Dental execute on its goals and initiatives for continued strategic growth."
"It has been an honor to work alongside Joe Nagle through the years in establishing and building the Altus Dental brand," Perroni said. "His leadership and expertise have been critical to the success of Altus Dental, and I look forward to working with him over the coming months to facilitate a smooth transition."
