Meet Jonathan

Jonathan is the ophthalmic director and has worked with Specsavers for 20 years. Originally raised in the Kenilworth, Warwickshire, Jonathan now lives locally with his family.

Jonathan previously worked in the fashion retail industry. He first trained at Liberty of London where he worked across roles which include branch/area management and wholesale. Jonathan's last post at Liberty was operations manager. Following this he moved to Harvey Nichols where he was sales manager for the menswear side of the business.

Following this Jonathan moved into optics as he saw a great opportunity to use his retail experience in a new environment that combined his interest of retail but linked to health professions.

Jonathan enjoys his role as director of the Exeter and Honiton stores with his favourite part of the job being working with a variety of people including members of the team and customers to help make a difference.

In his spare time Jonathan enjoys sport, especially cricket, rugby and triathlons. He also plays different instruments, as music is very important to him. More recently, Jonathan has enjoyed his slice of fame featuring in the national Specsavers Hearcare advert.
