George & Matilda Eyecare has been recognised for its rapid growth and impressive financial results at the Australian Growth Company Awards, winning Consumer Goods Growth Company of the Year.
Since 2012, the Australian Growth Company Awards have celebrated excellence in the mid-market, recognising companies that demonstrate high rates of growth, as well as innovation, integrity, contribution to community and sustainable growth.
Launched on 29 April 2016, today George & Matilda Eyecare has 50 practices located in all major capital cities of Australia.
CEO Chris Beer said, “This award is testament to the hard work of our team and fantastic partners. When we launched just a couple of years ago, we had no practices, just an ambition to build a world class community of the best independents. Since then we have enjoyed some amazing successes and I am very humbled to have our efforts recognised.”

“Clearly George & Matilda Eyecare’s approach is working. Our business strategy is to work closely with high quality practises across Australia who enjoy strong loyalty in their local communities. We work in partnership with each practice, meaning they continue to manage their businesses while we bring to the table the latest and best-available technology, buying power and supply chain support,” he said.
While growth has been rapid, Mr. Beer said George & Matilda Eyecare is selective about who they will partner with. “For us, the most important aspect of our business is building partnerships, in alignment with our values. We are investing a significant amount to ensure this is the case before committing to partner with someone, as this is critical to all our success.”
