Independent optical supplier Eyes Right Optical has been recognised at the recent Family Business Association National Conference in Alice Springs.

The national brands manager of Eyes Right Optical and Modstyle, Ms Lisa Wymond, received the ‘Next Generation Achiever Award’ in front of 500 guests for displaying excellence in her family business and successfully navigating the path to leadership.

Wymond said she was surprised to receive the award, considering the high calibre of past winners such as former Ella Bache CEO Ms Pippa Hallas, adding that it was crucial to continue the family legacy.

“As FBA keeps all applicants confidential, they didn’t reveal who I was up against, but I was told I had beaten some major competition from big businesses,” Wymond said.

“I was thrilled to win the award for our family business, particularly when you’re up against these huge well established family businesses that have been around for a long time.

“It strikes at the very heart of what we’re about as a family. We’re a family in business, and that’s why it works so well.”

Wymond began her career at Eyes Right nine years ago as a sales rep for Prodesign Denmark, before eventually becoming national brands manager in August last year.
