Alex Frommeyer, known by many as Fro, is the Co-Founder and CEO of Beam Dental, a digital-first provider of dental insurance for businesses in over 40 states. Fro started Beam Dental with Alex Curry and Dan Dykes in 2012, applying their collective passion for solving problems to the fragmented and analog dental industry. With multiple dental professionals in both his immediate and extended family, Fro used real life feedback and insight to guide Beam from an apartment in Louisville, Kentucky, to over 200 employees and 5,000 clients. Fro is a Forbes 30 Under 30 honoree and EY Entrepreneur of the Year finalist.
