No7 Contact Lenses has appointed two new directors as the company looks to expand its global business.

Optometrist Katie Harrop has been promoted from professional services manager, a role she has held since 2005, to professional services director. Ms Harrop will lead the company’s educational programme and training days.

Operations manager, Cathy Gallop Johns, has also been promoted and takes up the position of operations director. She will have responsibility for the day-to-day running of the business, which includes customer services, finance, export and overseeing the laboratory.

Speaking about her time at No7, Ms Gallop Johns said: “In the 20 years that I have worked for No7 the business has doubled in personnel and tripled in lens sales. Our plans for the next five years show an even greater commitment to supporting independent opticians and specialist contact lens fitters, and to expand our global business. No7 is a wonderful place to work – the team is good fun, professional and focused.”
