Dentsply Sirona named veteran operations executive Tony Johnson as its chief supply chain officer.

Dentsply Sirona announced that Tony Johnson has been appointed chief supply chain officer (CSCO), effective Nov 28, 2022.

He succeeds Andy Johnson, who served as interim supply chain leader and will now fully focus again on his role as vice president of formulated products.

Johnson is a seasoned operations executive with 30 years of experience across engineering, manufacturing, supply chain and procurement in the medical device business.

“Tony’s strong history of delivering results at international medical device businesses matches very well with Dentsply Sirona’s global footprint, our broad portfolio in the dental space and our future ambitions,” said Simon Campion, chief executive officer of Dentsply Sirona. “His international leadership and supply chain expertise will be instrumental to deliver on our strategic goals, realize our full potential and create value for our stakeholders.”

He joins the company from Cardinal Health, where he led upstream product marketing, research and development, medical affairs, and the medical global supply chain as president of global products and supply chain.

Prior to that, he was senior vice president of operations at Becton Dickinson (BD) / CR Bard where he was responsible for their interventional segment, and spent 25 years with Baxter International where he held positions leading operations both in the United States and internationally.

“I am convinced that my experience will be of value for Dentsply Sirona to build a robust platform that enables the company to capitalize on the market opportunities and reliably serve the needs of the customers around the globe,” said Johnson. “I look forward to working with this great team on its important purpose to empower customers by creating innovative solutions for healthy smiles.”
