Serving as Premier’s first female CEO and the fourth generation to lead her family’s business, Charlestein has pioneered the rebranding and expansion of the company, spearheading the launch of award-winning products and advocating for innovation and increased access to dental care. Driving Premier through its next evolutionary phase, Julie is navigating the global public-private interface, supporting daily dynamic development – giving her unique insight into the challenges and possibilities of the medical device sector.
In the last year, Charlestein launched innovative dental devices that have made a significant impact on the industry including; AeroPro®, which was awarded the Dr. Bicuspid Best Preventative / Hygienist New Product for 2019, and Vac Attak™ GREEN, for green-conscious customers who can utilize the environmentally friendly formula. She also pivoted Premier to maintain purpose during COVID-19 as dentists struggled to keep businesses open, reconfiguring manufacturing lines to produce medical-grade hand sanitizer (Tize-It!™) and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), made accessible to the public with direct purchase.
“With the latest advances in dental innovation, it is an honor and a privilege to be recognized by Best in Biz 2020 International as Executive of the Year,” said Charlestein. “For more than 100 years, Premier Dental has dedicated itself to serving the global dental market with sales in over 75 countries, and I am humbled to lead the company in our mission to bring innovative solutions to meet the ever-changing needs of dentists.”
