Editor’s note: Fintech startup CureMint co-founder and CEO Brandon Patrick McCarty disclosed Tuesday he was stepping aside as CEO to become “chief vision officer” and announced a new CEO. In his own words he explains his decision and what it means for the Durham-based company that’s raised millions in venture capital.
DURHAM – I’m thrilled to announce an exciting moment in the evolution of CureMint. Earlier this month, I made the decision to transition my role to Chief Vision Officer (CVO) making way for the addition of Tyson Nargassans as CureMint’s new Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
This decision was not made lightly, but ultimately it was a pretty easy one. It is and will always be a priority to ensure we are assembling the best possible team to serve you, our customers, and partners. While 2023 has been a year of growth, the pursuit of greatness must never rest. Bringing on a leader like Tyson marks an emphatic step toward our commitment to the continuous improvement of CureMint, its team, and the solutions we provide to you.
Tyson and I have worked closely together for a better part of 2023, and it became clear that we share a vision and passion for the advancement of financial technology in dental and beyond. Tyson brings over 15 years of experience as a B2B founder and CEO, with an extensive skill set in deep data and fintech. Prior to CureMint he successfully built, scaled, and sold Saylent Technologies in 2021. Tyson will be an outstanding leader for CureMint, helping accelerate CureMint’s position and execution as the leader in dental spend management.
As for me, I have never been more excited to come to work. This move will free me up to do more of the things that I love. As CVO, I will now have the ability to spend more time with our customers and partners to ensure we are bringing the most valuable solutions to the market. Additionally, I can now prioritize being the voice of CureMint and advocating for the advancement of spend management and financial operations across dentistry.
CureMint’s journey began nearly seven years ago. I can still remember explaining the word procurement, justifying why we called ourselves CureMint. and coaching dental organizations on why the dependency on their distributor’s e-commerce site and sales reps was not a sound procurement and spend management strategy.
Today, we support over 2,000 dental practices and deliver nearly $120 million annually in spending. Trailblazing a new way to do things in dentistry has never been easy, but it is extremely rewarding. We’ve had, and continue to make, a tremendous impact on the industry and our customers’ bottom lines, but this is just the beginning. The industry needs more, and we are here to deliver it for you.
I continue to be inspired by our customers and team, and never more confident in the position and future that lies ahead for CureMint. Please welcome Tyson to the team. I encourage all who are interested to connect with him directly via email email@example.com or through his Linkedin.
Now, it’s time for us to get back to work.
