Specsavers in Alton is delighted to welcome a new store manager to their team.

Meet Gavin Lund

27-year-old Gavin who lives in Basingstoke has 10 years of retail experience, having worked for other high street opticians in his previous roles.

Gavin said: 'I am thrilled to join the friendly team here at Alton, and what an honour it is to work for such a successful business that was founded in 1984 by husband and wife team, Doug and Dame Mary Perkins.

'Specsavers is a brand that I have admired from afar, and to now be part of it is a very exciting time for me.'

Delighted to be part of the Alton community

In addition to working for Specsavers, Gavin is pleased to be based at Alton - a community that has already proven itself to be very friendly.

Gavin continued: 'I've enjoyed meeting all the new faces and have found everyone - from the team to the customers - very friendly indeed.

'Alton has a real sense of community about it and to be at its heart, offering great eye health advice and a fantastic range of fashionable frames makes my new position feel like a great career move for me.

A word from the store director

Store director Premesh Patel commented: 'It seems like Gavin has been here for months already - that's a good sign! - and we really welcome his fresh approach and advice on how we can continue to improve as a business.

Like us, customer service and satisfaction is at the core of everything that he does and his input so far has been invaluable.'
