Ultradent announced leadership changes in sales and marketing as a former executive made a decision to retire.

Ultradent Products, Inc, a developer and manufacturer of high-tech dental materials, is announcing leadership changes in sales and marketing.

Steve Clark is now the general manager of North America and Sean Kennedy is the senior vice president of marketing.

Clark has been with Ultradent for 20 years, most recently serving as director of US sales. He has successfully led and developed a very large sales team with significant achievements over the last several years, according to Ultradent.

“Steve’s knowledge and passion will no doubt continue to serve the company well in this new role,” said Dirk Jeffs, Ultradent president and chief executive officer. “In addition to US sales responsibilities, Steve will also lead consumer retail sales and client relations teams.”

Ultradent stated that Kennedy has grown tremendously over his more than 15-year career in marketing at the company. During his time as senior director of US marketing, he was instrumental in the many positive changes that have taken place within Ultradent’s marketing team.

“We are confident the marketing function at Ultradent will continue to develop under Sean’s leadership,” said Jeffs.

The changes came as former VP of sales and marketing, Karen Phillips, announced her retirement.
