GrandVision officially announced the appointment of Stephan Borchert as the group's CEO, effective Feb. 28, earlier than previously announced. As we already reported (Eyewear Intelligence Vol. 18 n°12+13), the German manager (48) has in-depth international retail experience and moves from Sephora, the fragrance retail banner, where he was president of EMEA. Borchert will replace Theo Kiesselbach who will retire from the management board of GrandVision in April.
