Specsavers Workington is celebrating some exciting new changes following the addition of a new store director to their team.

Ian Hollinshead joins Specsavers to work alongside fellow store directors David Nicolson and Rizvan Ahmad.  All three are also store directors for the nearby Whitehaven store.

Wealth of experience

Ian, who lives in Cockermouth with his partner Penny and three children, brings more than 28 years of experience in optical care with him as he joins the Workington and Whitehaven teams.

Ian said: ‘As someone who’s devoted most of my life to eyecare, it’s been a real pleasure to see how welcoming and hardworking the Specsavers teams in Workington and Whitehaven are. The part of my job that I love the most is meeting new and interesting people every day, and I’m looking forward to getting to know the customers in both stores!’

Natural fit

Fellow director David Nicolson is very pleased to have Ian join the team; ‘It’s of the utmost importance to us at Specsavers that we’re providing our customers with the highest possible level of care, and given Ian’s incredible wealth of experience he really is a natural fit in both our Workington and Whitehaven stores.

We’ve had a number of customers comment on Ian’s friendly approach, and he’s already proven to be an invaluable member of the team despite only joining recently.  Both our Workington and Whitehaven stores are going from strength to strength, and under Ian’s leadership, things can only get better.’
