Focusing on professional services and training with a new appointment

Post on 10th July 2020

We have recently appointed Stuart Burdett as our new Head of Professional Services and Training.

Having spent almost 35 years working in optics and hearing care, including senior roles at VisionExpress and previously as managing director of OutsideClinic, Stuart brings strong experience and expertise to Scrivens.

Stuart will report into Professional Services and Training Director, Jeet Saimbi, who said of his appointment: “Stuart has joined Scrivens at an interesting time, as we learn to adapt and shape our business in a post pandemic world.

“Supporting our employees with compliance, training and support, so they are equipped with the skills and resources they need to provide the high levels of customer service we pride ourselves on delivering, is now more important than ever.  We are delighted that someone of Stuart’s calibre has joined Scrivens and are confident that he will be a great addition to the senior management team.”

Throughout his career Stuart has worked across many areas from optical and contact lens dispensing to regulation and working within the NHS.   He said: “This is an exciting time to be joining Scrivens as they clearly have the ambition and commitment to invest in and support their employees, who they recognise are core to their success.

“The high street changed overnight in March and like all businesses Scrivens has had to adapt its way of doing business and Professional Services and Training are more vital than ever. In particular, I am excited about building and developing a strong team of employed optometrists to take our business forward.”
