General Optical Founder Retires

Peter Lewis, who founded General Optical and Marchon Australia and has served for 28 years as CEO, will retire on 31 October 2015.

General Optical will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Marchon Inc., with the ultimate holding company being VSP Inc. GenOp/Marchon will be led by Brad Safin, newly appointed Country Manager and Jonathon Lewis, Managing Director.

Speaking of his years in the industry Mr. Lewis said, “I have experienced the optical industry’s complete metamorphosis over the years, with the evolution and the globalisation of the industry. I feel proud and privileged to have been able to rise to the challenges of the changing market and build an integrated business solution, which has as its primary goal, to support independent optometry, and enable them to compete successfully into the future.”
