The American College of Prosthodontists (ACP) recognized Ivoclar Vivadent CEO Robert Ganley during its 2018 Annual Session last fall in Baltimore. In 2018, Ganley renewed the company’s support of the ACP Education Foundation for another five years, commencing this year.
“Ivoclar Vivadent’s Bob Ganley has been a true friend and supporter of the ACP and the Education Foundation,” said Leonard Kobren, DDS, chair of the ACP Education Foundation.
“His vision, leadership, dedication, and service have advanced the field of prosthodontics. Bob is truly a visionary who transformed the dental technology landscape by innovating disruptive processes, technologies, and products that altered the profession,” said Kobren.
“Despite his transformative work in dental technology, Bob’s leadership and passion was always present with his involvement with the ACP Education Foundation and as an honorary board member of our team,” said Kobren. “Even during some difficult years, Bob believed in our mission, trusted our work, and supported the Foundation.”
Ganley joined Ivoclar Vivadent in 1980 as vice president. In 1990, he was named president of Ivoclar Vivadent North America. In 2003, he was appointed chief executive officer of Ivoclar Vivadent AG. He also serves as chairman of corporate management.
