The Power of CEO-CMO Alignment: Driving Same-Store Growth 2024

V1 E3

Dear DSO Leaders: 

As 2023 draws to a close and we gear up for the challenges and opportunities of 2024, the path to same-store growth appears shrouded in uncertainty. With interest rates expected to remain high and geopolitical instability potentially leading us towards a recession or at least a slowdown, it’s clear that our industry is at a crossroads.
Reflecting on 2023, we recognize it as a year that heralded the adoption of more calibrated growth models in dentistry. Looking forward to 2024, it becomes imperative that we focus on forging stronger synergies, especially between our CEOs and CMOs, to navigate these uncertain times and drive sustainable growth.
In our quest for excellence in the DSO space, an insightful McKinsey articlerecently caught my attention. It highlights a crucial aspect of business growth – the symbiotic relationship between CEOs and CMOs, particularly in challenging economic environments.
As leaders in dentistry, we are at a pivotal moment where strategic alignment between top executives can catalyze unprecedented growth. The McKinsey article vividly illustrates how this CEO-CMO partnership can be a game-changer, and I would like to share some key takeaways:

📣 CEO-CMO Alignment

Aligning the vision of CEOs and CMOs is essential. We must ensure that our marketing strategies resonate with our overarching business goals.
