CEO of the Year Finalist Views His Business as a Marathon, Rather Than a Sprint

A.J. Peak attributes his success to old-fashioned elbow grease and good people


Published:

Ask Andrew (A.J.) Peak about his success, and he’ll talk about his people: a world-class management team with experience across the health-care industry that he ensures are happy, challenged and fulfilled. The rest is old-fashioned elbow grease — hard work, long days and viewing the business as a marathon rather than a sprint — all of which have translated into 45 percent year-over-year growth.

“The biggest factor that sets A.J. apart from other leaders is the fact that he cares about his employees, and for that reason they are loyal to Peak and do everything they can to make this business better,” says Peak Dental Services Marketing Director Abby Zinman. “He definitely pushes us hard, but he also makes sure each and every person knows they are valuable to this company, appreciated, and that he recognizes our contributions. This definitely trickles down to patients, because happy employees create a happy office environment.”

Peak gives back by ensuring the practices work with local vendors, helping those companies to grow along with his own. The company also holds regular company volunteer events with local nonprofits.
