20/20 Money Episode #211 – Planning for the success and succession of your practice (emotionally and financially) with Dr. Pete Kehoe, OD

Welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Dr. Pete Kehoe, OD.

Dr. Kehoe is a fellow of the Academy of Optometry, National Academies of Practice and a Diplomate of the American Board of Optometry.  He has served the profession in a variety of roles and was president of the American Optometric Association 2008-2009. He is a partner in three private practices in central Illinois and serves Vision Source as an administrator in Illinois since 2000 and a variety of roles as a senior advisor since 2014. Dr. Kehoe served as a non-executive board member of Optos, Plc and currently serves as a consultant in professional development for Transitions Optical, Heru and Optos.

During this episode, we spend the majority of our conversation talking about the importance of planning for the success and succession of your private practice…whether you’re 35, 55, 65, or even 75 and the owner of a practice. Pete shares what was successful for him in recruiting and retaining providers that eventually became partners in his practice. We talk through how he financed the buy-in, the emotional component of selling part of one’s practice, the compensation structure that has worked well for their partnership, and some of the headwinds and tailwinds he observes in optometry and what practice owners can do about them.
