Jóhann Filippusson has been appointed as a UK agent for Ørgreen Optics.
Having worked as an independent agent in the UK for the last 12 years, and previously as an optician for 10 years following his studies, Jóhann will bring a wealth of experience to the role, said the Danish eyewear company.
“I fell in love with the eyewear market and was drawn to working closer to the creative side of the industry,” said Jóhann. “Moving into a brand was a natural progression for me, as I love introducing exciting products to the market.”
He will represent the brand in the UK along with Fahmidah Davey.
Martin Yde Poulsen, sales director for Ørgreen Optics, commented: “Jóhann was a natural choice to replace Bernard King, who has represented the brand for so long before retiring. Jóhann’s deep understanding of the UK market, along with his thorough knowledge of the Scandinavian approach to design, are invaluable assets in our pursuit of growth and our commitment to providing exceptional service to our clients.”
Ørgreen Optics is exhibiting at 100% Optical 2024.
