Utah wiz-kid Matt Dorey has made a lot of headlines recently. Since PilmerPR began working with his start-up company, Curve Dental, earlier this year, he and the company have been featured in Utah Valley Business Q’s Top 40 Under 40, DiscoveringStartups.com’s Best-Of awards, The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah CEO, Forbes.com, CBS MarketWatch’s BNET.com, as well as numerous dental trade publications. And to wrap up the year, Dorey was featured in The New York Times.
What’s the secret to this 26-year-old’s business success? According to Dorey in the New York Times, it was knowing when to hand the keys to someone better qualified than himself.
“The company was getting complicated,” Mr. Dorey said. “I was starting to become conscious of what I didn’t know. It was almost a feeling of loneliness.”
Dorey hired Jim Pack, a man with extensive experience in the industry, as CEO, and assumed the title of Managing Director in the company. Curve Dental is now expanding rapidly and revolutionizing the entire dental management software industry for the better.
