Vision Express has announced the appointment of Kate Clayton as HR director, in a promotion from her former role as head of HR, which she had held since 2008.
The move, which sees Clayton join the optical high-street retailer’s executive team, comes as Clayton celebrates 18 years at Vision Express. She joined the company in January 1996 on an apprenticeship programme.
In her new HR role she will oversee a workforce of more than 4,000 people within a network of 330 stores across the UK and Ireland.
Clayton said: “Our people are fundamental to the delivery of the Vision Express brand experience to our customers. I’m delighted to continue my HR career with a fantastic company, and to work with my colleagues to ensure that the ongoing development of the Vision Express team is at the heart of everything we do.”
