Luxottica has thoroughly reorganized the management team of its North American retail and managed vision care divisions. The new organization involves new appointments and the creation of a management committee overseeing the two businesses. The committee is made up of executives from brands, manufacturing and managed vision care businesses and from the business services necessary to support them.
In the shakeup, Kerry Bradley is promoted from president in charge of optical retail to the new position of chairman of Luxottica North America, overseeing vision development. Under his new position, Bradley will supervise other projects as well as vision care. He continues to report to Luxottica's chief executive Andrea Guerra.
Liz DiGiandomenico has been appointed president of Luxottica Vision Care. In her new role, she enlarges her responsibilities to include partnerships in the optical business and OneSight along with EyeMed and its related managed vision care operations. DiGiandomenico will report to Guerra and Bradley.
Tom Coleman has stepped down as president and general manager of LensCrafters for medical reasons. He has been replaced by Mark Weikel, previously senior vice president and general manager of Sunglass Hut. Weikel reports directly to Guerra. Fabio d'Angelantonio, chief marketing officer and global business leader of Sun & Luxury Retail, temporarily takes over the helm at Sunglass Hut.
Seth McLaughlin, previously only in charge of Pearle Vision, became executive vice president, overseeing Pearle Vision, licensed brands and Canada Optical, reporting to Guerra. Eric Anderson, senior vice president (SVP) and general manager of Target Optical, Daryl Hammett, SVP and general manager of Sears Optical and George Minakakis, SVP and general manager of Optical Brands Canada, report to McLaughlin.
