Congratulations were in order at Specsavers in Bletchley this month as team member Claire De Leo reached 10 years of service at the store.

Having found not only her life’s career at Specsavers, the dispensing optician also met her husband, Stefano, through her work.

Congratulations Claire

Store directors Bhavash and Ekta Kotecha said: ‘In November 2007, Claire started as a shy optical advisor at Leighton Buzzard. However, it wasn't long before she came out of her shell and it was clear that world class customer service was at the heart of everything she did.

‘Claire sailed through all of the Specsavers training courses and we then sponsored her on a course with the Association of British Dispensing Opticians (ABDO). Claire qualified as a dispensing optician in 2013 and, subsequently, we transferred her to our Bletchley practice.

‘Later she married Stefano De Leo (currently based at Leighton Buzzard) whom we had also previously sponsored on the Dispensing Optician programme with ABDO.

‘Who knows, both Stefano and Claire may eventually have their own store, but for now we are all keeping it in the family at Bletchley and Leighton Buzzard!’
