Kirk & Kirk has announced the opening of a new American office, coinciding with the 25th anniversary of Jason Kirk and his wife Karen working in optics. The British brand is already available in select stores across the U.S., and the new office is to allow the company to better handle the growing demand within this market. The office will be based in Philadelphia, which was chosen for its central location and transport links, the company said. The new office, which opened on Sept. 1, will be led by James Koh, who brings more than a decade of experience working with independent eyewear brands around the world. His team of reps will include Teddy Hamilton, Siobhan Burns, Adam Huff, Katie Kral and Marie France Labbé.
