The ADA has promoted Robert Quashie to senior vice president of operations. In his new role, Quashie will manage the team responsible for advancing the growth, sustainability, and capacity of the ADA’s new strategic plan, the ADA says. Quashie most recently served as vice president of business operations and strategy.
“I’m inspired by the ADA’s new strategic plan and believe it will help our members succeed and advance the oral and overall health of the public,” Quashie said. “I’m thrilled to be diving into this new role.”
As part of the ADA’s senior executive team, Quashie will have direct oversight of the ADA’s member and client services division and its technology division. The member and client services division aims to support member growth, while the technology division focuses on enhancing the ADA’s association management systems for supporting the organization’s strategies, as well as those of state and local dental societies.
“Robert has consistently delivered results since he arrived at the ADA, and I know he will be a huge part of the success of our new strategic plan,” said Kathleen T. O’Loughlin, DMD, MPH, ADA executive director. “I can’t wait to see what he does in his new role.”
A graduate of Grinnell College, Quashie studied business strategy and management at the Illinois Institute of Technology and Kellogg School of Business and has more than 20 years of experience in program management, marketing, and business development.
