MAX Surgical Specialty Management names Mark Censoprano as new co-CEO

Mark Censoprano has been named as the new co-CEO at Hackensack-based MAX Surgical Specialty Management, effective immediately. In his new role, Censoprano will work alongside founder and co-CEO Dr. Jason Auerbach to lead MAX’s growth strategy and executive team.

Censoprano’s arrival will accelerate the already-exceptional growth that MAX SSM has enjoyed since its inception. As CEO, president and chief marketing officer/chief operating officer, Censoprano grew Guardian Dentistry Partners into one of the most respected organizations in the industry, with 170 locations across 11 states. His experience as CMO at Aspen Dental earlier in his career, where he led transformative brand initiatives, contributed to the doubling of sales and earnings during his tenure.

“In the short time I have known him, Mark has already proven to be an insightful, cooperative and motivated partner with great energy and a genuinely collaborative demeanor,” Auerbach said. “That’s what set him apart, and, ultimately, that’s what I believe will complement an already amazing team at MAX and our family of practices. This is a new chapter, having Mark join MAX. I am confident that his strategic vision, leadership and industry-specific expertise will be invaluable as we continue to grow and achieve our goals while never losing focus of what got us here in the first place: our absolute dedication to our patients, to our referring doctors and our surgeons, the heartbeat of our organization.”
