Eye Care Centers of America is bringing its ophthalmic and contact lens businesses under the umbrella of its merchandising and sales development department, in an attempt to bring together all the company's merchandising efforts. That section is headed up by Kelly Carter, vice president since last August. In addition, ECCA has promoted Joseph Plott to director of merchandising for ophthalmic and contact lenses; he previously was senior product manager of that segment. Amy Johnson moves up to senior product manager for frames and accessories from her old slot as product manager for import frames.
