David Pierson Named Optical Retail Division Liaison


After a nationwide search, The Vision Council is pleased to welcome David Pierson as the staff Liaison of the recently announced Optical Retail Division.

Through his 30-plus years of experience in the retail industry, Pierson has spearheaded and managed operations, merchandising and strategic planning through a variety of leadership positions with organizations such as Refac Optical Group, CPI Corp., Cole National Corp., Federated Department Stores, Target, and Sears. Most recently, he served as the founder of J. David Optical Consultants.

The Vision Council’s Optical Retail Division – which was announced in January and continues to grow with more than 30 participating companies of various sizes – focuses on the unique business needs of optical retailers, as well as the important relationship between retail and wholesale. With his robust experience, The Vision Council believes Pierson will provide a unique perspective in driving the programs for the Optical Retail Division, with guidance from already-appointed Division Chair James Rosin of Rosin Eye and Vice Chair Stuart Jolly of Walmart.
