Eltham store director Michael has been with the store since the doors first opened, nearly 25 years ago.

Path to store director

Michael, who is also store director at Woolwich, relocated from Wales to London nearly 30 years ago, after completing his qualifications in optometry. He now looks after 80 team members – 35 of which work out of the Eltham store.

Michael was inspired to study optometry because he says he’s always had an interest in science, but also wanted a career where he was also able to interact with patients.

Outside of work

When he’s not running his businesses, Michael is a keen sports fan – especially of rugby of football.
