Tralongo Announces Eric Masson as New Chief Legal Officer

National Dental Practice Acquisition Firm Continues to Grow Executive Team

ATLANTA – July 21, 2016 – Tralongo, LLC, an Atlanta-based firm specializing in dental practice acquisitions, has named Eric Masson as its new Chief Legal Officer. Bringing vast experience and credibility to the position, Masson will oversee mergers and acquisitions along with all in-house legal actions, such as reviewing contracts and managing relationships with various law firms. This will free up the time of executives on the corporate team, allowing them to focus on their primary duties.

“Since I joined the Tralongo team, I have been amazed at the extraordinary passion our management team has toward its vision and values which are focused on dentists’ professional growth,” said Masson. “As Chief Legal Officer, my hope is to alleviate the legal duties previously borne or coordinated by company executives and provide them with the insight they need to continue fostering growth and supporting their strategic vision.”

Masson is an accomplished senior attorney who earned his Juris Doctorate from the University Of Baltimore School Of Law. He possesses over 20 years of experience working with the U.S. Coast Guard while demonstrating the ability to analyze and provide counsel on complicated issues. He has proven to be results-driven with a strong focus on risk-based decisions, allowing him to quickly gain the trust and confidence of executive management faced with complex legal matters.

Previously, Masson served as the Deputy Staff Judge Advocate for the U.S. Coast Guard Seventh District – the Coast Guard’s busiest and most dynamic operational area.  Additionally, he was a Special Court-Martial Judge for the Coast Guard Trial Judiciary. In these roles, he presided over special courts-martial cases; supervised junior attorneys; developed managed and executed the annual budget.  His proven record and acumen resulted in his being hand-selected for several high-visibility, special projects, and international engagements.

“Eric is a very organizational-driven and operationally-focused individual who will be a tremendous asset to our team,” said Dr. Ken Tralongo, founder of Tralongo. “As an officer in the U.S. Coast Guard, he served our country by providing legal counsel and supporting the strategic vision of one of the most reputable and prestigious branches of the U.S Military. This strategic thinking and ability to organize, manage and lead are directly transferable to his new role as CLO for Tralongo, and we are excited to utilize his exceptional skills in the civilian sector.”

Since its founding in 2013, Tralongo has continued to grow immensely. Just last year, Tralongo acquired 23 practices, bringing its total number of alliance partners up to 31 and its reach across 12 states. Tralongo has made a name for itself by partnering with entrepreneurial dentists who are looking to grow their businesses by acquiring and operating multiple practices, taking professionals out of the chair and into management and ownership.
