Delighted to lead Winton’s new store and its team is manager, Andy Chandler.
Andy’s career path
Andy brings the perfect combination of optical know-how and retail expertise to his new position at Specsavers.
He has worked in the manufacturing side of optics where he was a valued member of a sales and customer serving team. He then branched out to work directly in retail for an opticians business and played a pivot role in its commercial success and developing the staff.
A new exciting chapter
Throughout his career, he has admired Specsavers from afar. Its family business ethos and success appealed to Andy, so he was delighted to become the manager of the brand new Winton store that opened at the end of 2017.
His focus for Winton
Andy says: 'I really enjoy meeting the customers and ensuring that they receive a stellar service each and every time. To come into a new community and build this up from scratch is a very exciting prospect for me. We have a great team here and I also look forward to seeing their careers develop and flourish during their time with us.'
Outside of work
Suffice to say that the new store has had Andy rushed off his feet, which neatly brings us onto his passions outside work. Andy is training for his 101st marathon, which will see him repeat his very first run – the Clarendon Marathon in Salisbury.
