Inspecs has appointed Nevil Trotter as general manager of Norville, which the company acquired from the administrator on 14 July 2020.
Nevil joins Inspecs from Specsavers, where he was a partner and director of group manufacturing and distribution technologies. He was instrumental in delivering supply chain fulfilment for the Specsavers’ global move into eCommerce, as well as a successful market expansion.
Robin Totterman, Inspecs chief executive, said: “I am delighted that Nev has agreed to join Inspecs to run Norville. He brings a significant array of experience, expertise and knowledge of the optical industry and we look forward to leveraging this to build on Norville’s heritage and transform its future. I have no doubt that he will be a great asset to the Group as we look to further build our online offering and continue to extend the Group’s manufacturing capability.”
Nevil added: “I am thrilled to be joining the Inspecs Group to help Robin and the team develop and grow the Norville offering. This is an exciting opportunity to work with one of the industry’s oldest manufacturing brands, and I have no doubt that being part of Inspecs will help me to accelerate and release Norville’s true potential.”
