Scottish multiple Black & Lizars has embarked on a restructure of its central support office that has led to the departure of managing director, Michelle le Prevost.

A spokesperson for multiple said John Hare, who has owned Black & Lizars for 10 years, will now assume a more hands-on role as executive chairman.

Prevost joined the company in March 2016 and brought with her experience in the eye care, dental care and pharmacy sectors. She joined from Oasis Dental Care, where she held the role of mergers and acquisitions manager and had previously held roles as senior business development manager and head of project management at Specsavers.
