Practice Development Manager to enhance support services for Associates
8th January 2019
Eyeplan Ltd, the leading provider of monthly payment eye care schemes in the UK, has boosted its marketing team with the appointment of Andrew Slater as Practice Development Manager. Andrew will help to support and develop Eyeplan Associate practices plus assist with the delivery of Eyeplan’s new software suite and its range of free marketing services.
Andrew started his career in optics at the age of 18, working in a local independent practice in West Bromwich. Having gained a wealth of experience in all aspects of practice management, Andrew was offered the role of Trainee Dispensing Optician at Specsavers Wolverhampton, where he subsequently qualified. He later became a Dispensing Manager of the same branch.
Although working at a very large multiple, Andrew had always planned on returning to independent practice at the earliest opportunity. He brings his combined knowledge of over 17 years in optics to the role and will help develop and support Eyeplan Associate practices.
“We are delighted to welcome Andrew to Eyeplan,” said Chris Clemence, Commercial Director at Eyeplan. “Andrew’s industry knowledge and experience will be a great asset to our marketing team and we look forward to working with him and developing our Associate support services.”
Andrew will be attending 100% Optical with Eyeplan (Stand B216) from 12-14 January 2019.
Providing a personal approach to managed fee collection, Eyeplan also offers a variety of marketing support and business development to its Associates including direct mail campaigns, design and print services, PR support and training. More information is available at www.eyeplanassociates.co.uk
