Obituary: Paul Walden

Paul Walden was described as “a leading light in our industry”

Paul Walden
OT is sad to report the passing of technical and sales director at Lenstec Optical Group, Paul Walden (pictured).

Mr Walden worked at Norville Group for over 30 years where he was involved with product development and sales, before joining Lenstec in 2015.

Lenstec said that Mr Walden was “a leading light in our industry” and will be missed by colleagues and friends in the profession.

Managing director of Lenstec, Nigel Castle, said: “Paul contributed greatly to our training culture and his knowledge, as well as his friendship, I will miss. The many messages we have received have been very comforting at this sad time.”
