Meet the director
Tim Kidd is an optometrist and director and has worked for Specsavers for 26 years and has been a director for 25 of those. When he joined Specsavers there were only 40 stores and there are now over 1,500.
Tim grew up in Warrington and went to Bradford University. He decided to work in optometry as he wanted to work with the public in a medical role. After graduating he spent four years working as an optometrist in his home town before moving South and joining Specsavers.
He finds the privilege of looking after looking after people’s eye sight and eye health very rewarding. This can range from the provision of glasses to saving a person’s sight or even their life. After 30 years in the job he still gets great satisfaction from solving people’s sight problems.
Family and hobbies
Tim has three daughters and one grandson. In his spare time he enjoys watersports which he sees a prerequisite when you live on the Isle of Wight. Tim is also a qualified helicopter pilot.
