Welcome to our head of retail, Gillian Sibeth

Posted on 20th March 2017

We are delighted to welcome Gillian Sibeth as our head of retail at Cameron Optometry. She graduated in 1995 with the Fellowship Diploma of the Association of British Dispensing Opticians and has worked in the optical industry ever since. She has vast experience both in dispensing contact lenses and glasses.

Most recently she worked as a sales agent for William Morris London, a British eyewear designer. Attending optical shows in Paris and Milan each year, allowed her to identify the varied eyewear designers, identifying high quality, unique designers. In this role, she will be able to use this experience to ensure Cameron Optometry stocks an unrivalled range of frames.

Commenting on her appointment, Gillian said, “I had been looking for a role at an independent practice who appreciates independent eyewear designers, so am delighted to join this award-winning practice. Being able to assist in sourcing beautifully crafted frames and helping patients select eyewear is the dream job for me. Vintage eyewear is a passion of mine and I love the vintage influences in some of the designers stocked at the practice like Anne et Valentin. I am already receiving great satisfaction when I see customer’s excitement collecting their new spectacles and they always look fabulous wearing them.”

Managing director, Ian Cameron, added, “We completely redesigned our dispensing room last year, which is now more akin to a fashion boutique. We are committed to stocking unique, well-made, designers and know that Gillian’s experience will be beneficial as we select new designers. In addition, her experience in both advising on lenses, both for glasses and contacts, will be invaluable.”

Aside from her optical experience, Gillian is very well travelled, having lived all over the globe, including three years spent living in Moscow. And with a passion for keeping fit, having completed a triathlon, she’ll definitely be roped into the next Tough Mudder team outing.
