Duncan and Todd has appointed Gillian Sibeth as product development manager to drive the group’s growth plans as well as support its retail and external manufacturing businesses.

In her new role, Sibeth will travel between practices in Scotland and manage the roll out of frames, lenses and other products, as well as develop training opportunities.

Sibeth has 25 years of experience in the optical sector, most recently at a practice in Edinburgh where she was a dispensing optician specialising in artisan eyewear.

‘My passion is eyewear and I gain most satisfaction from advising and delivering an incredible service and end product. My focus is on client experience and finding a solution to their visual needs as well as personal tailoring in styling the perfect eyewear.

‘This is a fantastic opportunity to join a forward-thinking group so I am looking forward to working with the Duncan and Todd team across Scotland and helping to drive sales growth,’ Sibeth said.
