Norville has appointed Paul Jones as national sales manager. He was previously regional business development manager at Hoya Lens UK.

In September, Nevil “Nev” Trotter was appointed general manager of the British manufacturer of spectacle lenses.

The Norville Group, renamed Norville (20/20), was acquired by Inspecs last year. Inspecs bought Norville’s manufacturing operations when the company was placed into administration after becoming insolvent. Norville’s retail arm, Norville Opticians, was acquired in a separate deal prior to the bankruptcy by Hakim Group.
