Marchon continues to build up its international management team, bring in some executives who worked previously with Safilo, where Claudio Gottardi, president and chief executive of Marchon, worked for many years in leading positions. Marchon has now named a new father-and-son team to the management of Marchon Canada. Iso Sides is the new vice president and managing director, and his son Felix is vice president for retail and key accounts in Canada. Iso Sides succeeds Réné Levy, who announced in December that he was retiring after 16 years. He was formerly with Safilo Group, where he ran the Canadian operations from the time he opened them in 1990. Felix Sides, an optician, was also at Safilo Canada, managing the province of Ontario. Both men will report to Steve Wright, Marchon's senior vice president of sales for North America.
